CCCUK (FRN 232015) is a firm that provides Contracts for Difference for retail and professional clients. CCCUK was authorised in 2004. 

On 20 June 2023, we took temporary action to prevent CCCUK from carrying on any regulated activities by placing restrictions on its permissions. The restrictions were lifted on 4 August to allow the Joint Administrators to carry out their responsibilities. 

CCCUK was also required to preserve its client money and place a notice on its website informing clients that it was no longer permitted to conduct regulated activities and that all client positions would be closed. Information regarding these restrictions can be found here

The Joint Administrators are responsible for managing claims against CCCUK and returning funds to customers where possible.

Customers should receive more information from them shortly, including details on how to make a claim. 

Investors and CCCUK’s other affected clients should first refer to the firm’s website ( which contains a detailed Q&A.
