ActiveTrades introduces more protections for professional clients

The London based CFDs and Forex broker has also introduced a new account especially for its more experienced clients. By reclassifying as a professional client, their customers can still take on high levels of leverage.

Their account boosts protections for professional clients. They can still take on leverage rates of 1:400 while keeping the enhanced insurance of up to £1million.

The company has added that professional clients will still have their negative balance protection and their funds will be held securely in a separate account.
