Hello! How can we help?

Is Circle regulated?

In the U.K. Circle is regulated as an Electronic Money Institution by the Financial Conduct Authority, held accountable to the Treasury (responsible for the UK's financial system) and to the Parliament.

We are also licenced as a money transmitter in the U.S.A. and seeking authorisation as a payment service provider in the rest of the European Union, and will comply with all international laws and regulations that are applicable to our business.

Since the regulatory framework for online money transfer firms is still being developed, we are closely monitoring the actions of government authorities to ensure we meet any future obligations.
