In all activities, Fellow Finance distinguishes its own assets and customer assets from each other. The management of client funds is organized in a reliable manner.

Client funds and their changes can be reliably and consistently monitored either as a whole or one at a time.

All the banks are under public scrutiny and are either Finnish deposit banks or credit institutions authorized in another country to receive deposits in Finland. The customer-specific distribution of funds is done within the Fellow Finance's system.The system reconciles the account information of bank accounts daily. Customer-specific account balances are updated to Fellow Finance's service allowing customers to keep track of their funds in a timely manner. In Fellow Finance’s bookkeeping, client funds and own funds are separated.
