Governance Arrangements

Governance Arrangements and Management of Risk Framework Accendo Markets Ltd

Introduction

Firms are required under the Senior Management Arrangements, Systems and Controls (SYSC) manual of the Financial Conduct Authority Handbook to have in place robust governance arrangements and effective procedures which allow it to identify, manage, monitor and report the risks it is or might be exposed to.

Accendo Markets Ltd is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. This document sets out how the firm complies with its obligations to identify, manage and mitigate risks.

Governance and Risk Management Framework

The board of directors are responsible for the firm’s risk management governance structure and how the firm’s risk exposure must be managed in line with the firm’s overall business objectives and within its stated risk appetite. This includes the governance of the process for identifying, evaluating, managing and reporting the significant risks faced by the firm.

Due to the size of the firm, risk is reviewed and managed on a constant basis, particularly market risk.

The board of directors are ultimately responsible for ensuring that the firm maintains sufficient capital and liquidity resources to meet its regulatory capital and liquidity requirements and to support its growth and strategic objectives. Risk management is embedded throughout the business, with the overall risk appetite approved by the board of directors.

Business Objectives

Accendo Markets’ Risk Profile

Accendo has identified the following core risk categories: strategic, market, credit, liquidity, operational, legal, interest rate, excessive leverage and financial crime.

Accendo’s profile of these risks is continually evolving and is generally driven by:

  • Changes to the market in which we operate;
  • Accendo Markets’ strategies and business objectives and;
  • Accendo Markets’ business/operating models

Accendo Markets will seek to operate through carefully considered risk taking and robust risk management.  As such the effective management and control of both the upside of risk taking and its potential downside is a fundamental core competency of the firm.

Risk Appetite

The board of directors are responsible for setting the firm’s risk appetite, defining the type and level of risk that the firm is willing to accept in pursuit of its business objectives.

Three Lines of Defence

The firm’s governance structure is designed such that the business is the first line of defence, the compliance function is the second line of defence with the board of directors representing the third line of defence.

Risk Management Framework

The board of directors are responsible for approving the risk assessment framework and Risk Register, which is used to ensure that the firm has a comprehensive understanding of its risk profile, including both existing and emerging risks facing the firm, and to enable it to assess the adequacy of its risk management in the context of the firm’s risk appetite.

Remuneration Policies

Accendo Markets’ Remuneration Policy complies with the Remuneration Code in relation to its size, nature, scope and complexity of our activities.

The Policy is aligned to the Accendo Markets’ business strategy, objectives, values and long term interests in respect of performance and effective risk management in line with the firm’s risk appetite.

A copy of the firm’s Remuneration Policy is available via our website and sets out how the firm complies with the Remuneration Code.

Public Disclosure of return on assets

Accendo Markets will meet its reporting obligations by disclosing in its annual report and accounts a notice of its return on assets.  Details of the average total assets can be found in the published report and accounts.

Spread bets and CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage.

since signing up for Accendo I have had two traders, Mark and Sam. I have found both of these to be very informative about how CFD's work and they have made it very easy for me. Since working with Sam (last four months) my trading knowledge has improved and I can make more informative decisions about which Company's to invest with. Keep up the good work Sam.

Since I have been trading with Accendo Markets I have experienced much greater success than has been my experience with other trading companies mainly due to the help given by, what I consider to be my terminal with the trading floor, Mark, who has been most helpful in reminding me of the progress of my positions throughout the day and keeping me in touch with those positions so that I can more easily make successful trades when appropriate instead of missing out on opportunities through lack of attention. He draws my attention to the situations and enables me to make profitable trades. I am very happy with the situation at the moment and am enjoying the experience. Thomas Irving.

I have been trading with Accendo Markets and James Abbott my account manager for coming on 5 years now, James Abbott the senior trader of Accendo Markets provides me with up to minute information when I need it and find him very easy and professional to deal with. Whenever I need to trade or am not sure about anything James is always their to help with any queries I may have. The Accendo Platform I find very easy to use and navigate although it has been slightly changed over the years but definitely for the better. Personal when I do trade 90% of the time, I rather telephone call to place my trade dealings and if James is not there to take my call I find others at Accendo like Sam, Lee take my trades and are. All in all everyone at Accendo Markets are amazing to deal with and my relationship with Accendo is just as I like it. Peter Petrou

I have been with Accendo for a long time now, ten or twelve year's, probably more . As I told Sam (my trader) I thought that CFDs were better than sex . I stopped trading for a few years and only started back about a couple of months ago. But it is as if I had never been gone , so to speak. Sam has helped me every step of the way, at my age one forgets things. I have only praise for Accendo and as far as I am concerned the platform is the best . Now I am back trading at 71 years of age, I might even try sex again. Brian Robertson.

I understand how to make a profit with CFDs. I am restricted by the range of companies I have knowledge of. Although, I am not sure that is a big problem. Tom Robertson is a very fine man.

Well, I would not be trading without the help of my trader, Sam Alnakkash. He provided a really great overview of Accendo Markets, an insight into trading in general and how to get started in trading online. His advice, support and training has been fantastic all along the way, enabling me to start trading earlier than I would have done had I not had the support. He has also been very adept at understanding me as a client in order to help me achieve my trading goals. I still have a lot to learn and hope I will get there.

I like the updates on shares I trade. Updates from Bloomberg and Reuters plus industry updates and breaking news. I've had Matt Grice and James Abbott and found both to be excellent. I would like to continue a personal service with James. He understands how and which stocks I trade.
