How does GlobePay protect your money?

GlobePay Limited (also known as “GlobePay”) is an Authorised Payment Institution (API), regulated and registered by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK under the Payment Services Directive 2 (2020) to provide certain payment services. Please click here to view us on the FCA Register.

To keep your money safe, we follow a procedure called ‘safeguarding’, which is a regulatory requirement for all UK APIs. To safeguard your funds, we move client funds to a ‘safeguarding bank account’, which is an account specifically used for the protection of client funds.

Why do we keep your money in separate a ‘safeguarding bank account’?

  1. To ensure your money is kept apart from GlobePay’s operational funds.
  2. To make sure that the bank cannot use your money.
  3. In the case of insolvency, client funds are returned timely and in full.
  4. To ensure third parties do not have access to your funds.
