    I don't personally have any concerns around the guys we work with being Axi, IC and Global Prime having met the CEO's of each brokerage multiple times over the years.

    Should regulators reduce leverage as I expect over the next few years, it won't effect what we're doing here. Most of our traders are using leverage well below 20:1 most of the time.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts Nick. I was under the impression that fund segregation was already mandated by law, so it was interesting to learn otherwise. I'm comfortable that Axi and co operate responsibly, but my trust is never absolute.

    Curious to hear people's thoughts on the article below. The implications for reduced leverage and unquarantined client funds is very significant.
