UK watchdog detects misuse of LCG name by binary options broker

LeapRate’s loyal readers must already be somewhat accustomed to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) issuing warnings against clones of authorized online trading companies. Some of the cases the UK watchdog tackles, however, are quite stunning and today presented us with one of these.

Representatives of Tradignition, a binary options broker soliciting UK clients, are falsely claiming to be in a partnership with London Capital Group Holdings plc (LON:LCG), an authorized company in the UK and a widely known provider of CFD and spread betting services.

The FCA warns that the approach used by Tradignition classifies it as a clone. The regulator stresses that Tradignition has nothing to do with LCG.
