CMC Markets Responses To Bafin
[sam id=”8″ codes=”true”]
CMC Markets plc (“CMC”) notes yesterday’s announcement by BaFin regarding the marketing, distribution and sale of CFD products to retail clients.
The BaFin consultation paper requires CFD providers to ensure that retail clients cannot lose more money than is deposited in their account, a functionality which is already available to CMC Markets clients in Germany. On the basis of the consultation paper, there are no other requirements from BaFin including no leverage limits, and where retail clients’ risk is limited to their deposits, there is no prohibition on marketing, distribution and sale of CFDs.
We welcome this balanced approach from BaFin and will respond to the consultation in accordance with the proposed timeline of 20 January 2017. CMC Markets is the leading provider in Germany and has had the largest retail CFD market share, based on the latest independent Investment Trends research, since the start of the study in 2011.
CMC Markets brokerage was founded in the UK in 1989 and listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) in 2016. Almost thirty years of experience trading in financial markets has created a loyal following of traders who regularly use this award winning platform for investing their money in various international financial marketplaces.
