Your money is protected by a process known as safeguarding, which is a regulatory requirement for all EMIs. Under this process, all e-money balances must be segregated from all other cash balances. These segregated balances are held with a safeguarding bank and are routinely reconciled to ensure that the sum of all issued e-money balances is the same as the sum of cash held by the bank in the segregated account.

Payhawk is not a bank; we simply partner with them in order to enable you to control spend and manage your capital. As such, we can offer diversification across multiple financial institutions, which is traditionally challenging for offline banks to achieve.
