Alpari RU has today issued a notice to customers via its corporate website confirming that it has resumed deposit and withdrawal facilities via Skrill (formerly Moneybookers).
During the period immediately after the extreme market volatility caused by the Swiss franc’s 1.20 floor having been removed by the Swiss National Bank on January 15, LeapRate reported that Skrill took risk management measures and temporarily suspended withdrawals to a number of retail FX firms until the volatility subsided, at which point the withdrawals were reinstated.
On this basis, client money was safeguarded, and as of today, Alpari RU customers may use Skrill to deposit and withdraw funds to their accounts as normal.
