Security and deposit guarantee

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is the largest island state in Europe and is one of the most populous nations in the European Union with around 64 million people. The national currency is the British Pound (GBP). The United Kingdom has one of the strongest privatized economies in the world, evidenced by the fact that it has the third largest Gross Domestic Product in Europe – and the sixth largest globally. The UK is one of the few states with the highest rating (AAA), as assessed by the credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s, amongst others. London, Britain’s capital city and metropolitan area, has been the world’s top financial center for decades.

Deposits are eligible for protection by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) The FSCS is the United Kingdom’s statutory deposit guarantee scheme that covers deposits in individual savings accounts up to £85,000, per banking group regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority or the Prudential Regulation Authority. It is available for deposits with most UK high-street and online banks and means if the bank fails, and deposits become unavailable, the scheme may cover your deposit account deposit up to the £85,000 per person, per banking group limit.

Your deposit will be administered by Meteor Asset Management Limited (MAM) and Meteor Investment Management Limited (MIM) who will process your application and cash respectively. Cash and deposits will be held by MIM and MAM in trust for you under FCA client money and asset rules.

In the event that MIM or MAM cannot meet their obligations you will remain the beneficial owner of any deposits purchased for you, and also cash held on your behalf in MIM’s client account. In both cases these will remain covered under the FSCS protection for the deposit taker or the banks holding client money to £85,000. For more details please see our MAM Terms and Conditions

Compensation limits are per person per firm, not per deposit. Be aware that if you have other deposits with this bank (or banking group) then the £85,000 protection applies only to eligible deposits up to this limit.

This limit will be for the total of all the accounts you have with the different bank brands under the authorisation, irrespective of how many different institutions a person holds accounts with.
