Important information about compensation arrangements

Your deposit is covered by a statutory Deposit Guarantee Scheme. Arbuthnot Direct is covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“FSCS”). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a bank is unable to meet its financial obligations.

All eligible depositors are entitled to claim up to £85,000. This amount applies to all the bank’s trading names. Arbuthnot Direct is a trading name of Arbuthnot Latham & Co., Limited. This means that all eligible deposits with Arbuthnot Latham & Co., Limited and Arbuthnot Direct are in total covered up to £85,000.

For joint accounts, each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000). The £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor’s accounts with Arbuthnot Direct and Arbuthnot Latham & Co., Limited including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.

For further information about the compensation provided by the FSCS (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please refer to the FSCS website or call the FSCS on +44 (0)20 7741 4100 or +44 (0)800 678 1100.

Please note only compensation-related queries should be directed to the FSCS.
