How is my money protected when I invest with Fidelity?

Fidelity has multiple levels of protection for your money in the event that something goes wrong. Fidelity is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, which means we always hold a significant amount of liquid capital. And because we are an investment firm, not a bank, we are required to separate client money and assets from our own resources. If all protections we have in place were to fail, you might have a claim under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (but remember that this will not pay compensation if your investment performs poorly as a result of market conditions).
