Almost any company promoting/offering/selling financial services or products within the UK is required to attain authorization from the FCA. However, this is not the case for the TRD Brokers/TRD Futures Group. The firm was conducting its activity in the UK without aforementioned authorization.

Why is FCA authorization important?

Financial Conduct Authority has the responsibility to regulate entities providing financial services to consumers. The activity of the FCA is aimed at maintaining the UK's financial market. The watchdog issues warnings whenever it finds out the companies that have no permission to solicit potential clients. In the warning against TRD Brokers Group, the FCA cautioned the public to refrain from dealing with this broker.

As the international market is experiencing an increase of Forex frauds, it is strongly advised to deal only with companies with an adequate license/permission to financial services within the area. If potential investors are committing money with an entity, who lacks authorization, his/her losses will not be covered by any compensations schemes.
