Good news may be around the corner for some claimants of troubled brokerage firm, Alpari (UK) Limited. The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) today declared that it will make further compensation payments to claimants who have agreed their balances with the joint special administrators via the Alpari claims portal.
However, additional red tape may be required if the account is held in joint names, or in the name of a trust or corporate entity. In such cases, claimants will be required to complete an FSCS application form.
FSCS assured claimants that it is “working to process the remaining claims as quickly as possible and expects to make further payments in the next few weeks.”

Recipients will be contacted by the joint special administrators to confirm once compensation has been paid by FSCS, subsequent to validation checks.
Back in March, the FSCS reassured Alpari clients that they would be fully compensated for up to £50,000 of deposits at the brokerage. Since then, delays have frustrated claimants, with FSCS even issuing an apology in April.
