Financial Services Compensation

The Financial Services Compensation Program (IS) is a compensation fund in Belgium for clients from authorized firms providing financial services. If the firm becomes bankrupt or stops trading, Intesa Sanpaolo can pay compensation to its customers. Intesa Sanpaolo covers the business under the management of companies authorized by the National Commission for Companies and Stock Exchanges in Italy (CONSOB).

ALS FX customers will fall under the category of "investment" claims, whereby insurance is up to 75,000 euros sterling per person and firm. If the client holds an account with an authorized investment firm and there is a shortage of funds and operations between the client and the broker, they can still receive up to EUR 75,000 as compensation. If ALS FX ceases to exist, customers whose funds are held in separate accounts will receive a refund of shares of a separate cash pool, minus administrative costs for processing and distribution of these funds. If there is a shortage later, individuals have the right to compensation under the compensation program in the financial services sector.
