What is a Professional Account?

A Plus500 Professional Account is available to traders who meet the regulatory threshold to opt up from Retail Client to Elective Professional Client. Professional accounts are not subject to ESMA’s new leverage restrictions. Learn More.

Please be aware, clients with professional accounts are not entitled to compensation under the Guarantee Fund Investor Protection Sectoral Fund. Leverage amplifies investor losses and gains; High leverage magnifies the costs of investment in respect of spreads and financing charges; Higher volumes of trading will result in increasing trading costs.

How to Change Back to Retail?

Clients with a Professional Account have the right to request at any time to return to a Retail Account, by contacting our Customer Support team via email or chat.
