Winterflood Business Services logo 2



We have made arrangements with a third party for the provision of certain dealing and related settlement and custody services. These services will be provided by Winterflood Business Services, a division of Winterflood Securities Limited (“WBS”) and may be made available to you allowing you to deal in a wide range of investments, subject to you entering into an agreement directly with WBS (the terms of which can be reviewed and accepted in our Terms and Conditions).

We will not hold your cash and/or assets. Cash and/or assets will be held on your behalf by WBS, its nominee and/or its sub-custodians or any securities depository as deemed by WBS to be appropriate (or any nominee company thereof) and such persons will hold and administer your cash and/or assets pursuant to the WBS Retail Client Terms and Conditions and in accordance with applicable law (including the FCA Rules and, in particular, the CASS Sourcebook).
