Let Us Show You Around

Regulated forex brokers are facing increased pressure by local forex watchdogs and this brings the option of offshore licensing of forex brokers back in the limelight. Stringent regulatory and compliance requirements across the globe mean that entry barriers to the forex market increase and this renders the choice of jurisdiction as crucial as ever for the success of new entrants to the forex brokerage landscape. The licensing environment in the forex market keeps changing and presents new challenges continuously, and thus it has to be effectively tackled by finding the right jurisdiction and the right help to set up there.

White Label Forex Brokerage Licenses & Regulation FAQs

Do I Need to Get a License to Start a Forex Business?
Though some unscrupulous brokers may attempt to offer trading services while being completely unregistered and unlicensed, the truth is that all brokers need to get properly licensed before starting to offer their services, ensuring they fully comply and adhere to the rules and regulations of the country they chose to set up their business in. The increased popularity of the forex trading market in the past years has brought about stricter regulatory requirements by local watchdogs and this fact highlights the importance of proper forex brokerage licensing.
How can I Get a Forex License?
Understanding how and where you can obtain a forex license is the first crucial step towards opening your brokerage, bearing in mind that the process differs according to each jurisdiction. It may be easier to start off through a partnership with a larger brokerage or trading service provider. Another option would be to start out as a white labeller since this will help you avoid high entry barriers and overspending at the initial stages. In any case the right choice of jurisdiction is significant for the success of the endeavour.
What are the Forex Broker Licenses that I Can Choose from?
Most new brokerages may find it impossible to comply with the stark and strict legal and regulatory framework imposed in most western countries with regards to offering forex brokerage services. Luckily, there are also several offshore jurisdictions where licensing can be obtained with lower entry barriers, provided proper banking access is ensured. Moreover, perhaps the smartest way to start a new forex brokerage is by resorting to a forex turnkey solution, which allows you to start your brokerage business quickly, without significant costs and with no setup or licencing complexities.
