CapitalFX removes the potential conflict of interest between the best execution of your trades and our profitability.

CapitalFX does not:
  • Run a B-book or make money from client losses.
  • Receive any form of profit share from a group entity relating to our clients trading losses, i.e. no other company runs a B-book on our behalf.
  • Have arrangements with trading counterparties to run a B-book on our behalf.
  • Our trading is fully automated, i.e. ‘No Deal Desk’. We have no human discretionary traders and we do not make hedge execution decisions based on client trading behaviour or account profitability.
  • Make proprietary trades or hold proprietary risk positions.

While this information doesn’t form part of our client agreement, this is information that we expect to be held to account to, and which we are always happy to verify, as all brokers should.
