Trading Rebates

We offer trading volume rebates across our wide range of asset classes on our platform, which are split into tiers: the more you trade, the larger the rebate you can generate.

If your total notional trade value in any asset class during a calendar month meets the minimum required, then you’ll earn a rebate. This will depend on the total volume you trade - your rebate will be calculated in accordance with the rates and tiers set out below. Your rebate will then be added to your account as cash at the start of the next calendar month.

How it works

When you trade the minimum notional amount ($m) of volume required monthly, you’ll be rewarded with a cash rebate in your base currency for each notional $m traded. Below is an example rebate calculation if you have traded in both FX and Indices asset classes during the same month.

FX

Your total monthly CFD or spread betting trade value for FX will need to be at least $25m to qualify for rebates. Once you reach this level, you will earn either $5, $8 or $12 depending on which tier you achieve for every $1m you trade throughout the month.

Volume rebate example calculation:

  • If your total FX trade value in the month is $150m, you achieve tier 2.
  • The tier 2 rebate rate is $8 for every $1m you trade in the month.
  • Your monthly volume rebate is $1,200 (150 x $8).

Indices

If during the same month your trade value for indices is $30m, you would also qualify for a tier 2 rebate of $5 per million traded. This is because you have met the threshold for tier 2 in FX, even though you have not met the minimum volume threshold in indices. In addition to your FX rebate, the calculation for your indices rebate would be as follows:

  • If your total indices trade value in the month is $30m, you achieve tier 2 (as you achieved this tier on your FX trading for the month)
  • The tier 2 rebate rate is $5 for every $1m you trade in the month
  • Your monthly volume rebate is $150 (30 x $5)

 

Hence in the above example your total rebate for the calendar month = $1,200 + $150 = $1,350

The Financial Conduct Authority has implemented permanent rules limiting the leverage available to retail clients to between 30:1 and 2:1, as spread betting and CFD products are considered restricted speculative investments, and higher leverage rates are not suitable for the majority of retail clients. These restrictions will not apply to ADSS Professional clients.

Negative balance protections don’t apply to professional clients, who have an obligation to make additional payments if their account falls into a negative balance. ADSS can use more sophisticated language when talking to professional clients. ADSS may assume a level of knowledge and experience when assessing whether our products are appropriate for professional clients. For professional clients we may prioritise other factors such as speed and likelihood of execution, if we determine they are equally or more important than overall price. In practice, we don’t change the way we execute your orders.

Don’t worry. Even with a Standard Account, ADSS gives you the opportunity to trade thousands of products through Orex, our award-winning trading platform, complemented with excellent customer service. 

When executing orders for you, ADSS take all sufficient steps to obtain the “best possible result” for you. However, the requirement for Retail Clients, to determine the best possible result in terms of total consideration for the transaction does not apply to Professional Clients.

Financial instruments that count towards your portfolio size include shares, derivatives (only available cash deposits or profits realised from investing in derivatives), debt instruments and cash deposits. It does not include property portfolios, direct commodity ownership or notional values of leveraged instruments.

Significant size is determined by taking into consideration the notional value of individual asset classes, as follows:

Equities £10k per trade

Indices/Commodities £50k per trade

Treasuries/FX £75k per trade

As with a Retail account, ADSS will hold your funds in a segregated client money bank account. You are also eligible for Financial Services Compensation Scheme protection on up to £50,000 that you hold with us. You have access to the Financial Ombudsman Service if you aren’t satisfied with the outcome of a complaint to us. You can request to be re- categorised  at any time if you want a higher level of regulatory protection.
