Segregation of Funds - Protection Statement

  1. We are required by our licence to inform customers about what happens to funds which we hold on account for you, and the extent to which funds are protected in the event of insolvency. Please visit - How gambling businesses protect your money (gamblingcommission.gov.uk) for more information.

    We hold customer funds separate from NYCDA company funds in either a ringfenced NYCDA Advanced Payments & Commission Account or the NYCDA Weekly Draw account. NYCDA holds these multiple accounts to ensure the separation of NYCDA Weekly Draw accounts from NYCDA operational accounts.

    To further protect against insolvency, NYCDA utilises 'independent oversight' via external accountants to monitor these bank accounts, as well as paying for suitable levels of insurance in the form of Professional Insurance and Director & Officers cover In the event of insolvency, the annex a holders would instruct these accountants to return outstanding member balances to the members.

    This means that steps have been taken to protect customer funds but that there is no absolute guarantee that all funds will be repaid. This meets the Gambling Commission's requirements for the segregation of customer funds at the level: medium protection.
