Response to FCA Consultation Paper

London Capital Group notes the FCA's consultation paper, released this morning, on measures designed to enhance conduct of business rules in the contract for difference sector. LCG is committed to providing the highest standards of conduct and considers a uniform application of the rules will benefit both the industry itself, and the clients we serve.

The FCA has identified the risks to inexperienced retail investors posed by firms with a business model predicated on high churn of clients with a high loss rate. LCG has consistently focused on higher-value experienced premium clients who understand the markets and products they are trading. Furthermore, an integral part of LCG's "client first" proposition over the last five years is ongoing client education about markets, products and associated risks. LCG's business model and ongoing strategy is focused on generating revenue from client trading costs and therefore believes in establishing long-term client relationships.

LCG recognises that in its consultation paper the FCA is endeavouring to ensure that any regulation is delivered in a balanced fashion and looks forward to working closely with the FCA over the coming months.
