Change of Margin Requirements During EU Referendum

Dear Traders,

We would like to inform you that we will be lowering the maximum available leverage for instruments likely to be affected the most from increased market volatility expected in the build-up to, and during, the EU referendum.

The new margin requirements will take effect after market close on June 17, 2016, and will last until market closing on June 24, 2016.

New margin requirements will be as follows:

• Major GBP Crosses* [2%] % (1:50)
• Minor GBP Crosses* [4%] % (1:25)
• Exotic GBP Crosses* [8%] % (1:12.5)
• All EUR Crosses (Except EURGBP)* [1%] % (1:100)
• European Indices (Spot & Futures)* will be increased to 5% (1:20)
• European Shares* will be increased to 15% (1:6.66)

* Unless existing margin requirement is higher, in which case existing margin requirement will prevail.
