FCA UK (former FSA UK) regulated Forex brokers

The list of FCA UK (former FSA UK) registered and regulated brokers:

Update: As of April 1, 2013 the FSA UK has become two separate regulatory authorities:

The Financial Conduct Authority (www.fca.org.uk) and The Prudential Regulation Authority (www.bankofengland.co.uk)
FCA Forex brokers FSA UK Forex brokers

FSA UK registry contains Authorised and EEA Authorised brokers.
As FCA UK takes over, it will now be maintaining the registry, however at this time it simply redirects to FSA UK website: http://www.fsa.gov.uk/register/home.do

Authorised – is a FSA UK regulated broker. A firm that FSA UK has given permission to carry out regulated activities.

EEA Authorised – is a broker that’s been registered with FSA UK, but is regulated in its home country. The EEA Authorised status is given to firms that are authorised in another European Economic Area (EEA) state and been given a “passport” by FSA UK to provide cross border services to UK citizens according to MIFID. These firms are regulated in their home country, and not by FSA UK, although must comply with standards agreed across all EEA countries.

Note from FSA UK site, quote:
“Consumers considering or currently doing business with passported EEA firms (‘EEA Authorised’), may wish to ask for further information from the firm or its UK branch about its complaints and compensation arrangements. This is because the position may differ compared to a UK authorised firm.” Further reference: http://www.fsa.gov.uk/pages/Register/use/foreign_firms/index.shtml

Do you know another Forex broker who is registered with FSA in UK?
Please suggest by adding a comment below.

About FSA (UK)

The Financial Services Authority (FSA) is an independent body, a single regulator of all providers of financial services in the United Kingdom. The FSA regulates most financial services markets, exchanges and firms. It sets the standards that must be met and can take action against firms if they fail to meet the required standards.
The Financial Services Authority regulates financial services in the UK since December 2001.

Requirements for FSA regulated brokers

Forex brokers regulated by the FSA are required to meet a number of industry standards and requirements, in particular:

  • Ensure about the quality of the bank in which clients funds will be held, and, more over, continue to monitor that quality to be
    able to fulfill own regulatory obligations. The bank must be approved by FSA.
  • Keep client funds separate from company funds, in other words, segregate clients’ deposits, which at no point can be treated
    and used as company assets including the situation when the company becomes insolvent.
  • Submit financial reports to the FSA on the regular basis and undergo detail annual audit etc.

What does this mean for a retail Forex trader?

In plain language, this means a higher protection of investments for any individual Forex trader.
By being obliged to keep client funds on a segregated account, a FSA regulated broker cannot use clients’ funds to cover own needs, expenses and risks as well as utilise those funds in case of the bankruptcy.
All money received form depositors are treated as “Client money” under FSA client money rules.
These rules form one of the most important parts of the UK financial regulatory system related to consumers – they protect consumers in the event of the failure of a FSA regulated company. If a FSA regulated company fails to meet its financial obligations, a liquidator would not be able to use clients’ money to meet claims of general creditors of the failed company. Clients’ funds can only be used to pay out compensation to clients who held deposits with that company.

Investors protection: the Compensation Scheme

Should the company go out of business and face liquidation, its clients are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) – the UK’s statutory fund of last resort for customers of authorized financial services firms. This means that the FSCS can pay compensation if a firm is unable, or likely to be unable, to pay claims against it.

Concerning the Forex market, the compensation limits are set as follows:

Clients receive 100% the first £30,000 + 90% of the next £20,000, but no more than £48,000 in total.

You’ll find compensation limits on this of FSCS – Investment limits.
Another point, the FSA regulations do not require to open a separate segregated account for each client. It is enough to have one Client account for all investors, which will be fenced from the Company account. Concerning general clients’ funds protection there is no major difference. Large investors might be able to negotiate a separate segregated account under their name with Forex brokers on individual basis.

To check if a broker is registered with FCA UK use FCA Register.

FCA UK Authorised – means broker is UK based and is regulated in the UK by the FCA UK directly.
FCA UK EEA Authorised – means broker is NOT UK based (could be registered anywhere, for example off-shore). The broker is then regulated in it’s country of registration (if, for example, it’s an off-shore Cyprus based broker, then it’s regulated by CySEC). While FCA UK has simply given permission to provide Forex trading to UK clients.

Dear R Kearney,

no broker will allow your account to be funded by a third party, or withdrawn to a third party. I think FXDD mistakenly and unknowingly did that.
The Anti-Money laundering policy is very strict for all Forex brokers around the globe.

Hi Trying to fund a forex acc using my Sipp
Already done ot once with FXDD but spreads too big, now being told Oanda can’t recieve 3rd party monies….this will come from my fund administrators…so how did i do it ok with FXDD?? confused..
R Kearney

Yes, a Forex company can be incorporated in UK. I don’t know the exact costs of incorporation in UK, but usually incorporation procedures are not costly at all.

Binary Options brokers in their general mass are not regulated. I haven’t come across a FSA UK regulated binary broker.
We don’t have a list of Binary Options brokers, but you can find them on other sites, for example: Binary Options Brokers (A-Z)

Can you please provide me with a list of FSA registered Binary Options Brokers based in UK and USA?

Many thanks,


Can a Forex company be incorporated in UK ( Forex licence is expensive there), instead go to NZ to be regulated. Is this allowed, if this will result in Uk customers not allowed to open accounts, it’s ok.

Forex brokers who are only Registered (EEA Authorised) with FSA UK obtain the right to carry out operations in UK and solicit UK clients. They don’t however obtain regulation from FSA UK and are rather regulated in their own countries. So, yes, when it comes to solving disputes, you won’t be able to ask for much help from FSA UK nad you won’t be covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) in UK.

Those brokers those are not Regulated but just Registered are not safe???? Admiral Makets is not a Regulated Broker but it’s a Registered broker. So we are new people want to know is it safe for us?? Pls ans experts.

Thank you very much for the info, now I operate in Forex.
I am interested in working with CDFs and these companies (Master Polar and Syon Group) offered me their services.

Master Polar is not a broker. They offer graphs, news and reports elaborated by analysts from Reuters, Bloomberg and other.

Both companies are not regulated.

Please some reference about http://syongroup.net or http://www.masterpolar.com, I need information from these sites are reliable?.

Thank you!

EEA – 529264 – AFX Capital Markets Ltd

We don’t offer A-Z guidance on how to become a broker, since this is a large topic with many regulatory and administrative steps to take (which also differ from country to country) and thus won’t be possible to cover in 1-2 pages, I’m very sorry.
General guidance can be found here: http://www.www.100forexbrokers.com/how-to-become-a-forex-broker

Starting a fully independent brokerage would require a substantial capital and a considerable experience of dealing with investors.
A simpler way, which many new brokers follow & which allows them to learn the specifics of Forex dealing faster is to start as an Introducing Broker (IB) or a White Label (WL) for an existing brokerage company: http://www.www.100forexbrokers.com/ib-vs-whitelabel

While the best source of information about starting a brokerage company is always – at another existing Forex broker, which welcomes IBs and WLs.
Brokers are always happy to provide instructions and step-by-step guidance of how to set up your company as IB of WL with them. You can learn a lot by contacting 2-3 different brokers.

hi,how are you my friend/i wanna start my own company .
how can I open a brokerage company? How can I become regulated?
plz help me in this matter

my broker is not returning back my money not even small withdrawal .not answering my calls,my emails,or live chat if they saw my name (i,v try to talk in another name and worked perfectly twice but hang up directly after identify my self )
they are under FSA authorities
what i have to do

Dear Luis,

at 100forexbrokers we can’t be bias and/or show preferences towards any broker. This would be against our policies.
But yes, we can give you maximum information & provide search tools, so that you can select brokers with more confidence.

Unfortunately, binary options is not our subject. We don’t do research on binary options brokers, sorry.

Your steps to selecting a broker would be:

1. Using the search find brokers who offer AlertPay deposit option & are regulated:

– select Regulation: is regulated
– select Deposit method: AlertPay

You’ll receive just over 15 matching brokers.

2. Consider the age of the company. Older companies are naturally going to outscore newer ones. Serving trades for a number of years & having more experience is a valuable commodity, compared to new brokers with fewer clients and less experience.

3. Consider the country of registration & regulatory authorities. Offshore regulators can’t compete with strict regulators of other countries. For example, UK, US, Australian regulators would be significantly better than any offshore regulators.

4. Check broker contact details & phones. Make a call to evaluate the support service.

5. Finally read reviews on all and any review sites you can find.

6. Open a demo account with a selected broker (of a few selected brokers) & make sure you’re comfortable with their platform& trading conditions.


I have never used forex sites before, but some time ago, i started to feel curiosity, and started to read ebooks about forex and learned some graphic analisys.

Now i would like to start to use with real money, but the thing is that i can’t choose what is the more appropriate site to a beginner (cheapest), and worse than that, one that i trust and feel safe about my money.

I heard a lot about scam sites, and i do not want to loose my money in one of those schemes, but i do not know how to proceed to find one honest forex site.

I have searched for payment proofs of sites that use AlertPay (the payment processor i would like to use) but i do not find any recent… Only proofs with more than 2 years.

So, what i would like you to help me, is to inform me, which sites you think that are regulated, and honest/pay users.
I do not know if this makes any diference, but i am from Portugal, i was planning to start with no more than $200 (a litle less, if possible), and i would like to use AlertPay payment processor, but if not possible, bank transfer is one other option that i can use (but i rather prefer AP).

If you could help me, and inform me about this, or if this is too much specific for you to lookup, if you could at least inform which forex sites are honest, and/or how should i proceed to verify if a site is regulated (and therefor honest, i think… Am i wrong?) i would be very greatfull to you.

I also have another question, about binary options… Are these also regulated, or this is a complete scam? (as i do not know if this is the correct designation, i will join here 3 examples so you can see for yourself:
Are these sites honest or complelty scams?)

Please, help me because i am unemployed and i need one income, but can not afford to loose money on scam schemes… (Teach-me how to verify / detect one honest site, or inform me about that, with a list of sites)

Please, apologise my bad English, and try to answer with easy english, so i can fully understand you.

Waiting your reply

(My really) Best Regards

SVSFX has been listed. Thank you!
About FSA rules for professionals regarding EA usage – haven’t heard of that, sorry.
DFmarkets.co.uk – listed. Thank you!

That’s a good point Nick. Thank you, will work on the listing to add further details.

BrokerGuru – no offence but your list with UK regulated brokers is misleading. Most of the brokers in your list have only registered with FSA as EEA authorized firms to provide cross border services to UK citizens according to MIFID. It doesn’t mean they are FSA regulated, they are just registered with FSA. All FSA regulated firms must have approved persons in the FSA Register to be able to serve clients. So it is better to check on the Register by clicking “individuals” how many of your list have APs (approved persons)



I have found recently a new UK regulated forex broker: DFmarkets.co.uk
They offer MT4 platform. You can add them to your list.

Hello, does anyone know about a FSA rule that only profwessional traders can trade with Autoamtic Trading Systems?

SVSFX is FSA broker

No, they are not.
Masterforex is a Russian based company, currently not regulated.

Are Masterforex regulated by FSA or NFA?

Heard a lot of Bad reviews about FXCM, although their demo account was showing good profits for me. But now I’m very wary about their business.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to verify, since FSA UK doesn’t provide information about companies that are pending
Youtrade FX has FSC Mauritius licence.
However, according to the information at the bottom of their website, quote:
“All clients of “YouTrade” are initially assigned to YouTrade Holdings Limited.” That’s a UK entity, which is not regulated at the moment.

Hi, im doing a research on YouTrade Fx. They´re regulated by FSA Mauritius, and it seems that FSA UK regulation is in process. Is there a way i could check it out? Can you help me?

A segregated account means that client funds are kept separate from company funds, and separate from main company accounts as well. As a rule, a broker would keep client funds in one joint account (under broker’s name), which a broker can access only for the purposes of facilitating trading activities for his clients. A broker cannot use client funds for own business needs and purposes including facilitation of own risks, expenses and obligations.
In case a broker files for a bankruptcy, the funds on the segregated account remain untouched and will be returned to clients following all rules and procedures defined by the regulator in each country. A regulator will also ensure that a broker follows the rules about proper segregation of client funds at any time.

Hi BG,

I would like know more about “client funds separate from company funds” means?

Is it means fund are deposited into different bank account’s name of the original company? or the activities of the fund is control by the regulator? or just a different account only with no restrictions that the company still can use the fund freely?

Thank You!

gain capital group, raso kad regliuojamas 5 finansiniu paslaugu reguliavimo tarnybu

Gain Capital Group, says that regliuojamas 5 Financial Services Regulatory Authority

Authorized by FSA = Regulated by FSA, it’s the same in terms of rules and regulations that apply to the company, which has a registry number # with FSA UK.

If you file a complaint against a FSA regulated company (regardless company’s primary location/registration), you should expect the same level of response and resolution regarding your case.


May I know what is the different of Authorised by FSA of UK and Regulated by FSA of UK?
For example trading point are Authorised by FSA of UK but their company not UK based but at Cyprus, I wonder if got any complain, FSA UK have the authorization over different country? or it’ll be complicated on any execution of the law? seen the company not at UK.

Thank You!

Thank you!
By the way, where can I find the link to trading specifications, account opening forms etc.

It’s a BVI company, so they don’t require FSa regulation in UK.

Yes, all clients of the FSA regulated companies are covered. USD or GBP – any investment.

Dear BrokerGuru,

Please answer my question. I would like to know if the compensation scheme also covers clients who have their funds in USD currency (not in GBP) in a broker that is regulated by FSA. Your immediate answer is really appreciated. Thank you for your kindness BrokerGuru.

Will FSA also cover clients who have invested their funds in USD (not in GBP) in an FSA-regulated forex broker?

MySmartFX is a BVI company, not regulated by FSA UK.

how about broker Mysmartfx…….they have branch at Indonesia?

True, Spreadex is registered with FSA UK, however, they are a spread betting company, while we create listing for conventional Forex brokers. Thank you anyway, we might use this information for future listings!


Spreadex Ltd is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority. Spread betting carries a high level of risk to your capital and can result in losses larger than your initial stake/deposit. It may not be suitable for everyone so please ensure you fully understand the risks involved.

Good day,
If the broker goes bankrupt you’ll receive:
100% the first £30,000 + 90% of the next £20,000, but no more than £48,000 in total according to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

Regular withdrawals is the best you can do in this situation. Don’t let it accumulate too much.

Good day
Broker Guru

For example, if i deposit £30K to FSA broker and make a profit by trading till £3M.
** Will i receive my total net worth balance (£3M) when broker bankrupt? or just receive my first deposit (£30K)?

Best regards,

To all Forex Trader,

Ava FX’s business is registered in British Virgin Islands (BVI), so the broker should rather seek regulation from FSC of BVI, not FSA UK.
Regarding ranks, I don’t know, I don’t rank brokers.

Dear Sir,
I found this site very useful.Can u answer me why Avafx is not registered in FSA.Should we assume it a low ranked cfd broker?

FSA UK id#: 477418 – FXPRO Financial Services Limited

I have seen Fxpro (FxPro Financial Services Ltd ) under “the list of FSA UK registered brokers” in your website.
FxPro Financial Services Ltd is authorised and regulated by only CySEC (licence no. 078/07).
It is false news that is Fxpro is under the list of FSA UK registered brokers.
If it is correct, can you please send me FSA UK registeration no. of Fxpro to my mail kmohan852()gmail.com.
Reply urgent.

All lists are updated regularly.

It would be useful to note when this list was last updated as there is always a chance it is missing one of the new players.

Hi Riyaz,

Thank you for the information about broker re-branding.
Regarding recommendations, I can’t give any, for any broker, I’m sorry, but it’s the policy of the website.
We collect facts and give your the tools to compare brokers, but we always remain unbiased and don’t provide any reviews or suggestions.

GFC Markets changes its brand name to Markets.com
Is this broker reliable to trade.I want to invest through this company.kindly assist me.

A regulated broker is always a more secure choice, because you can complain to its regulator should the things go wrong.

The regulatory environment doesn’t revolve around NFA and FSA UK. Every country has own Forex regulators.
Take Dukascopy, for example. A broker with a long and successful reputation, located in Switzerland and regulated by Swiss regulatory bodies.

The regulation has nothing to do with broker’s dealing model, however. A regulated broker can run a dealing desk and take trades against clients’ positions or be an ECN/STP.

There are trusted brokers among Market makers as well as among ECN/STP, but in every case, a regulated broker is a more secure choice.

FSA and NFA registered that do not something to me but they are trusted? they are against traders? they use dealing desk to pick pocket of individual traders?
Please suggest at least one trusted proven Forex Broker from allover the world?
thanks. your Leo

I’ve found the FSA register for iFOREX. Thank you.
eToro is not registered with FSA UK. Their affiliates may do, however.

eToro and iFOREX are dealing desk brokers. If you have any facts that say otherwise, please kindly point out. Thank you.

iforex and etoro

ICA carries out an educational mission only. They educate and train on the subjects of: Anti Money Laundering, Compliance, Financial Crime Prevention. ICA doesn’t, however, do any regulatory/supervisory work.

A broker can receive an ICA certificate or a diploma after completing the training, but it’ll have nothing to do with the regulatory status of a broker.

Hey Is ICA (International Compliance Association), :” http://www.int-comp.org/ “,
which is endorsed by BBA (British Bankers Association): ” http://www.bba.org.uk/about-us “, have infulence in regulating the forex brokerage companies in uk and internationally ? and if so how much safety does it give a forex broker with such endorsement membership have with such an affiliation ?

That’s right. They are registered with FSA UK.
Thank you!

How about Atlas eForex, it has claimed to have registered with FSA?

FxPro is regulated by both: FSA UK and CySEC.

As for Azurite Markets – I don’t see any $100 free account offers on their site, only 10% bonus. Can you guide?

I think FXPro is not regulated by FSA. They regulated by CySeC.

http://www.azuritemarkets.com offers free $100 trading accounts, I believe they are in the above. A good way to test their services.

HuproFX is not regulated.
I would also recommend to review the discussion topic about HuproFX on other sites
