- Embedded True-Site identity assurance seal
- Ava is WebTrust compliant, as determined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants
- Ava uses McAfee Secure (HackerSafe) to prevent credit card fraud and identity theft.

In line with European financial regulations, Ava Capital Markets Ltd, the Group’s EU subsidiary, maintains ring-fenced ‘custodial’ accounts for client funds. The purpose of this practice is to ensure that client assets are completely separate from other assets of the Ava Group. All client funds are deposited and maintained with Danske Bank – an ‘A’ rated leading European financial institution. In addition, Ava’s customer accounts are audited periodically by Grant Thornton UK LLP. Check out our custodial-client-accounts page.
