We Segregate All Member Funds

We hold all member funds in segregated bank accounts in accordance with CFTC regulations.

Member funds are held in accounts at BMO Harris Bank and Fifth Third Bank in the US.

The funds in this account are held entirely separately from our own money and can never be treated as belonging to us. This ensures that in the event of any bankruptcy by Nadex, your funds will receive preferred status to those of a general creditor.

Regulated Exchange

Nadex is subject to regulatory oversight by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

The CFTC is a government body that has regulatory oversight over the industry and is committed to protecting market users from fraud and manipulation.

As a regulated exchange, Nadex is completely neutral with respect to the activity that takes place on it. We do not trade and we do not take speculative positions in the market, either on Nadex or elsewhere. See the Regulated Exchange page for more information.

Additional Levels of Security

Beyond adhering to the regulatory requirements for segregating member funds, our unique products and trading rules offer additional levels of security.

All products traded on Nadex are fully collateralized, which means that the funds to establish a position must physically be on deposit in our segregated bank accounts before we will accept an order on the exchange.

We also employ 'cap checks' to ensure we hold the funds to cover the maximum possible loss (and pay out the maximum possible profit) in advance of every trade.
