How Admirals works
Admirals rebranded from Admiral Markets
Deep liquidity from top-tier liquidity providers. Our system aggregates the flow from different banks and other venues into a single liquidity pool, allowing us to provide competitive spreads and deep liquidity.
Admirals Regular vs Pro accounts
Admiral Markets Pro is not an account - it is a set of trading terms and additional benefits which can be accessed by an eligible client with any CFD account, which includes Admiral.Markets, Admiral.MT5 and Admiral.Prime accounts.
Both professional and retail clients get the same access to our trading platforms, instruments and trading tools and have the same spreads, commissions and daily financing. There is no difference in terms of any costs.
Execution and LPs
Admiral Markets UK Ltd, Admiral Markets AS and Admiral Markets Cyprus Ltd are members of the Admiral Markets Group, under common ownership. Admiral Markets UK Ltd has an outsourcing agreement with Admiral Markets AS whereby it provides a number of services. Furthermore, Admiral Markets AS acts as liquidity provider to the companies under common ownership. The potential conflict of interest is mitigated by Admiral Markets AS having a number of different liquidity providers and by the monitoring of execution quality and prices offered to its clients.
In relation to each CFD transaction, Admiral Markets UK Ltd acts as principal on a matched principal basis. This means that on entering into a transaction it will enter into a back to back transaction with its liquidity provider on the same terms. As a result, a client will be dealing with Admiral Markets UK Ltd and not the underlying market. The liquidity provider may either act as a market maker in relation to the particular transaction or enter into a transaction in similar terms with another liquidity provider or a regulated market or MTF/OTF or equivalent in a non–EEA jurisdiction.
25.7 We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). If we are unable to meet our liabilities in respect of investment business, if you make a valid claim you may be entitled to redress from the FSCS in respect of the investments that we arrange or deal in for you. This depends on the type of business and circumstances of the claim. Most types of investment business are as at the 1st October 2019 covered for 100% of the first £85,000 per person.
