The FxPro is part of a bigger company called FxPro Group, which was established in 2006. Besides the FxPro, the Fxpro Group involves many other sub companies such as FxPro Global Markets limited, FxPro Finacia services Ltd and FxPro Global Markets MENA. Each of these sister companies work in different jurisdictions and on different markets, but still all have the FxPro brand in common.
The companies reasoning for the way of during business is so they can work within a lot of different regulatory requirements set by different geographical regions. This then ensures the clients safety and protection no matter the trader physical location.
As already stated the trading platforms are operated by many sister companies working with different jurisdictions. The management strategies give way for them to have several business and regulatory licenses all issued by different agencies. If you are located in Europe you, as a trader, will be under the laws and regulation of the FxPro Financial Services Limited, which has the MiFID compliant license under the number 07/807 which is issued by The Cyprus securities and Exchange Commission aka CySEC.
The UK based company FxPro UK Ltd is regulated and restricted according to the laws and guideline of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).Traders located in Dubai will be services by the FxPro under department; FxPro Global Markets MENA Ltd, this section of FxPro is regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority. And for all using the platform based anywhere else, the service is provided on FxPro Global Markets Ltd, which is under the oversight of the Securities Commission of the Bahamas (SCB) with the license number SIA-F184. With all of the oversight and vigorous security nitpickery, any users, anywhere in the world can feel safe and secures that they will be treated fairly and if not, they will have a place to file a complaint with a recognized regulatory agency.
An extra layer of protection and safety is provided for UK based users of their platform. Since when you operate from the UK the brokerage has to comply with the UK’s Financial Services Compensation Scheme, which means that a trader in case of insolvency of their funds, can file compensations letter with a demand of maximum £50,000 pounds sterling. If not in UK and just based in Europe, clients will be in the protective stable of a similar scheme run by an investor’s fund which is tied to CySEC, here the maximum compensation is €20,000 Euros if FxPro should not uphold their part of the contract.
It is almost impossible not to feel in good hands when dealing with this brokerage, considering the combination of huge amount of regulatory oversight and the Compensation Schemes ability to compensate any money stuck if contracts are breached.
