Safety & Security

How do you know your funds are secure?

Our stringent security measures will give you confidence that your money is always safe.

Security of funds

The security of your money is always assured because your payments will be lodged in separate client transaction accounts with Lloyds Bank plc. These accounts are designated for the receipt of client funds.

We pioneered the IPD ® (Irrevocable Payment Document), which is internationally recognised as proof of payment. So you can have confidence that your transactions will go through quickly, safely and smoothly.
