CySEC Regulated Brokers

In the last few years many brokers have appeared on the forex scene operating from Cyprus. The reason is because of the low taxes in Cyprus and the recent EU accession(Cyprus joined the EU in 2003). This has allowed some brokers to start operating in Cyprus with relatively low capital requirements(€1-2M compared to $20M in USA), while providing customers with up to €20,000 coverage in case of broker default. As of November 1st, 2011, there were over 110 financial firms registered with CySEC. Below you will find all the forex brokers registered with CySEC , as well as rebate offers for some brokers, offered by FxRebateGurus

The €20,000 coverage is provided by the Investor Compensation Fund for customers of Cypriot Investment Firms. Most forex brokers will also hold customer funds in segregated bank accounts, which are not used for any other purpose other than customer trading activity. To read more about the fund click here.

FxRebateGurus offers trading rebates for the following CySEC regulated forex brokers, rebates are paid per round turn lot traded(100k traded).

How rebates work:

1. A trader opens an account through FxRebateGurus(using our referral links found on each broker's page), the broker knows that the trader was referred by us so we are compensated for the trader's trading activity.

2. We share a majority of this commission received. The rebates are per round turn lot(100k traded).

The above list contains a total of 30 registered legal entities(as of June 1, 2012), our last list from November 2011, in comparison contained 16 registered forex brokers.

There are several brokers operating from Cyprus, however they have no license and CySEC has warnings against opening accounts with them.

To see the latest CySEC warnings check this page, there is 1 warning for 2012(so far), surprisingly a decrease from previous years, there are 13 warnings against companies for 2011 and 12 warnings for 2010. So we recommend against opening an account with any of the brokers that are listed there. In most cases these are brokers with offices in Cyprus but for whatever reason don't have a license to operate in Cyprus(in our opnion this is a huge red flag).

On FxRebateGurus.com all the forex brokers we work with are regulated. Nimal, there might be brokers that operate from Cyprus without a license but we don't work with them.

As per your comment to make it mandatory for all brokers to be regulated. NFA in the US has done that but it has forced brokers to move to another country rather than becoming regulated.

We just have to be vigilant and do research before we open a trading account with any forex broker.

It appears that CySEC allows unregulated forex brokers to operate in Cyprus. In view of the existence of scam brokers why don't you make it mandatory for all brokers to be regulated?
