A Professional Client is defined as a Client who possesses the experience, knowledge and competence necessary to make informed decisions about investments and to correctly assess the risks they assume (see Consob Regulation, Annex 3). Art. 37 ("Contracts"), paragraph 3, Art. 38 ("Contracts relating to portfolio management"), Art. 42 ("Appropriateness"), paragraph 4 which refers to Art. 56, paragraph 1 of Del. Reg. 565/2017, Art. 44 ("Combined sales practices"), paragraph 2, Art. 47 ("Obligation to execute orders at the most favourable conditions for the Client"), paragraph 3 and Art. 60 ("Statements to Clients"), paragraph 2, of the Consob Regulation on Intermediaries (adopted with Resolution no. 20307/2018) do not apply to professional Clients. It is possible to request an upgrade to 3 different types of Professional Client: 1) Professional Client for derivative and leveraged instruments, 2) Professional Client for asset management instruments, 3) Professional Client in general. A Fineco Professional Client, aware of the lower level of protection provided, can operate with this qualification only on accounts with a single holder and on joint accounts, only if the other joint holders have a similar classification. It is possible to operate offline on managed assets even if the joint account holders do not have the same qualification only if the user is qualified as a Professional Client on asset management instruments or on a general basis.
Contracts For Difference (CFD) trading is available to clients following the assessment of their knowledge of derivative instruments and the subscription of the Derivative Trading Contract.
CFDs (Contracts for Differences): a CFD is a financial derivative, which you can buy or sell with FinecoBank as your direct counterparty. Its value is directly related to that of an underlying asset (securities, indices, currencies, futures on bonds, futures on volatility indicators and futures on commodities) and consequently follows the price movement in the underlying asset. In particular, in CFD trading your profit/loss is given by the difference in value between the opening price and the subsequent closing price of the contract. The opening price and the closing price are determined by the Bank applying, if appropriate, a mark-up or a spread on the underlying price to the extent indicated by the economic conditions at the time. CFDs are characterized by a strong leverage effect. This means that a relatively small price movement in the underlying market will have a proportionally higher impact on the value of your margined position and an unfavourable price movement may result in losses exceeding your initial margin deposit (increasing underlying price for short positions, decreasing for long positions). CFD Positions open for more than a working day (overnight) are subject to a multi-day position fee.
CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 69.17% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.Before trading in CFDs, please read carefully the Key Information Documents (KIDs) available on the website: finecobank.com.Leverages offered are differentiated according to the type of underlying and customer classification: up to 28.57 times for retail customers and up to 100 times for professional customers.For the economic conditions, features, nature and risks of the products, reference must be made to the contract supplements (delete links to contract supplements) concerning the services for receiving and transmitting orders and for executing orders on behalf of customers also by negotiating derivative financial instruments, as well as to the relevant Product Sheets and Operating Rules, available on the website finecobank.com
Daily Options: derivative financial instruments – with underlying CFDs on indices, commodity futures or currency exchange issued by the Bank – tradeable directly with FinecoBank. A Daily Option call or put assigns the buyer the right but not the obligation to buy (call) or sell (put) a certain amount of the underlying at a fixed price ("strike") at the end of the day on which it was bought. In order to acquire this right, the buyer pays a sum ("premium"). If the Customer does not conclude the sale on his or her own initiative on the same day of purchase, for each Daily Option "In the money" held at the end of the day the right will be automatically executed. If at the end of the day the option is "Out of the money" or "At the money" the position will be closed automatically.
The purchase price of the Option is determined by the Bank by applying a pre-established Spread.
Daily Options are complex instruments and involve a high degree of risk due to the leverage effect. Customer losses cannot exceed the premiums paid.
Before trading Daily Options, carefully read the documents containing the key information (KIDs) that will be made available on the Finecobank.com/uk website.
