Complaints Procedure

In the unlikely event of your dissatisfaction with any aspect of our service, in the first instance you should contact your account manager as most complaints can be dealt with at this level. If they are unable to resolve the matter to your satisfaction you may refer it to our Compliance department.

Please either email compliance@fortrade.com or write to:
