    HYCM Ltd (‘HYCM’) is authorized and regulated by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) under the Securities Investment Business Law of the Cayman Islands with License number 1442313. To view our license please click here.

    About the CIMA

    Some of Cayman Island’s Monetary Authority (CIMA) principal obligations include acting in the best economic interest and promoting and maintaining a sound financial system in the Cayman Islands (through robust but appropriate regulation). The CIMA has developed a regulatory and supervisory framework which emphasizes adherence to international standards, and is a combined rules-based and risk-based approach.

    The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority has four principal functions:

    • ● Monetary - The issue and redemption of Cayman Islands currency and the management of currency reserves.

    • ● Regulatory - The regulation and supervision of financial services, the monitoring of compliance with money laundering regulations, the issuance of a regulatory handbook on policies and procedures and the issuance of rules and statements of principle and guidance.

    • ● Cooperative - The provision of assistance to overseas regulatory authorities. These include agreements with leading authorities such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in the USA, the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission and the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO).

    • ● Advisory - The provision of advice to the Government on monetary, regulatory and cooperative matters.

    The Cayman Islands’ adherence to global regulatory and supervisory standards on international cooperation and information exchange has been evaluated and found “sufficiently strong” – the highest assessment possible – as per the Financial Stability Board.

    HYCM complies with all relevant and applicable regulatory requirements imposed by the CIMA in relation to financial services undertaken on behalf of clients.

    High AML Standards

    The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority plays a central role in the fight against money laundering and terrorism financing. The Cayman Islands has implemented the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) 40 Recommendations on the Prevention of Money Laundering and the Countering of Terrorist Financing, which are international standards for effective anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing regimes

    Protection of Client Funds

    • ● Segregation of Funds
      As a strong proponent of transparency and fair trading practices, HYCM guarantees that client funds are kept in separate bank accounts. All client funds deposited with HYCM are fully segregated from the company’s own funds and are kept in separate bank accounts. This ensures that funds belonging to clients cannot be used for any other purpose. As such the bank or any other creditor of HYCM will not be able to claim these funds in case of liquidation of HYCM Ltd.

    • ● Top-tier Banks
      All client money is held in segregated client bank accounts in approved, AA-rated top-tier banks. HYCM has partnered with Tier-1 banking institution Barclays Bank Plc, for safekeeping of funds in segregated accounts.

    • ● Daily and Annual Reconciliations
      The Company performs daily reconciliations between its own accounts and its clients’ funds accounts. Annual reconciliations are also performed to ensure strong client money protection.

    • ● Regulatory Compliance
      HYCM is required to work within strict accounting and risk management frameworks. The company is legally required to submit financial reports and showcase its financial strength.
      HYCM has appointed BDO Ltd (part of BDO International, the fifth largest accountancy network in the world) as our independent external auditors to conduct an independent review of our client money procedures and segregation.
