You should carefully consider whether trading in Margin FX and CFDs is appropriate in light of your personal financial needs, circumstance and objectives. Trading in OTC derivatives entails significant risk, as the products are highly leveraged and therefore gains and losses are magnified, and total losses can exceed your investment.

Please ensure you obtain independent professional advice, and carefully read the product issuer’s PDS to assess the risks and costs, before trading in these products.
