Barclays Important Information
20 March 2015 – Update to the International Trader Terms and Conditions
We have updated the International Trader Terms and Conditions to provide clarity on how we hold your cash. View the latest version, effective from 20 March 2015 [PDF, 256KB].
These terms now explain that cash in your International Trader account is held as Client Money and therefore the Client Money provisions in the Barclays Terms apply. (Section B, Part 8 – Holding Cash for investment services). View the Barclays Terms [PDF, 1.4MB].
Cash held in any other Barclays Stockbrokers account continues to be held as a bank deposit as outlined in the Barclays Terms.
As there is no change to your service you do not need to take any further action.

Simplifying our legal structure
Previously all Barclays Stockbrokers’ products and services were provided through a number of Barclays’ companies including Barclays Stockbrokers Limited (BSL) and Barclays Sharedealing (BSD).
To simplify this legal structure, we have transferred the business and services of BSL and BSD to Barclays Bank PLC.
We can confirm that the transfer took place on 31 January 2014.
