Response to FCA announcement

Plus500 Limited

Plus500 Ltd.

("Plus500" or "the Company")

 Response to FCA announcement


Plus500, a leading online trading platform provider for customers to trade CFDs internationally, provides an update following today's announcement from the FCA about its proposed interventions regarding the sale of certain complex derivative products.

The proposed interventions are the same in substance to the regulatory changes that ESMA imposed in August 2018. The Company acknowledges the FCA announcement, noting it already operates in compliance with these proposed changes. It has never offered binary options and so is not impacted by this proposed intervention.

The FCA's proposals do not change the Company's expectations.
