Are my funds secure?
iBanFirst is regulated as a payment institution as per the European PSD2 directive, which strictly regulates how payment institutions, such as iBanFirst, operate and manage client funds and payments.
For instance, under the PSD2 directive, funds must be segregated from the payment institution's own funds and held at a custodian bank. Cash reserves must be held to guarantee the payment institution's solvency. Both measures guarantee that, in the unlikely event of iBanFirst’s insolvency, client funds would remain safe and secure and would be returned to the clients.
iBanFirst S.A. is duly authorised and regulated by the National Bank of Belgium (under CBE number 0849.872.824) as a payment institution. It is a direct member of the SWIFT network and is certified to make payments throughout the SEPA zone. As a payment institution, iBanFirst S.A. only offers hedging solutions (forward, flexible forward and dynamic forward) connected to underlying payment transactions. iBanFirst S.A. does not offer options or any other financial instruments for investment or speculative purposes.
