Rick Steves

“With this ISO 27001 certification, we firmly demonstrate our commitment to maintaining robust security systems aligned with international best practices”.

Capital.com has received the ISO 27001 certification: the international standard for an Information Security Management System (ISMS) for the development, implementation and maintenance of IT services and solutions for online trading.

Published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) to ensure that products are safe, reliable, and of good quality, the certification affirms Capital.com’s commitment to maintaining information security at every level.

An ISMS can be audited by an independent CB (certification body) to assess whether it conforms to the requirements of the standard.

Dmitry Ogievich, Chief Operating Officer, Europe at Capital.com, said: “Data security is at the heart of our business and to keep our clients’ information safe and secure, we continuously strive to stay in step with global standards, regulation and best practices.

“With this ISO 27001 certification, we firmly demonstrate our commitment to maintaining robust security systems aligned with international best practices. We will continue to enhance and improve our systems and processes to ensure that we always respond and react quickly to our client’s needs and wider external changes”.

The high-growth European leveraged trading platform has onboarded 400% more clients in H1 2021 when compared to H2 2020 and saw a global pick-up in trading activity over the same period.

Total client trading volumes across all markets grew by more than 184 percent, reflecting the firm’s growing reputation as a platform of choice among retail traders as well as the momentum for retail, with stocks and crypto taking the lead in a period that saw trading disruptions, particularly in the United States, as brokers were unable to keep up with trading activity.

Capital.com has achieved the highest overall client satisfaction levels among leverage trading providers in the UK, according to the latest Investment Trends Report.

The platform has recently announced that it has integrated with Paypal which means that its users will be able to make deposits and withdrawals via Paypal. Capital.com already supports deposit and withdrawal using debit and credit cards,  wire transfer, and other payment methods like Sofort, Giropay, iDeal, and ApplyPay.

In September, Capital.com has been granted a license to operate in Australia, having already opened an office in Melbourne. The UK-headquartered leveraged trading platform now holds an Australian Financial Services (AFS) license granted by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

The firm keeps on securing new licenses for key jurisdictions across the globe, having already been approved by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) in Europe and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK in the past years.

One of Europe’s fastest-growing trading and investing platforms, the firm introduced commission-free stock dealing services to help clients in the UK, France, and Germany invest directly in over 1000 world-renowned stocks.

In May, Capital.com has extended its trading hours to enable pre-market and after-hours trading on its platform.
