Cyprus (CySEC) Forex License

The financial services regulatory body in Cyprus is the 'Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission' (CySEC).  Being a member of the EU, Cyprus is in full compliance and duly harmonized with the EU Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID).

During the last 5 years Cyprus has established itself as an excellent Forex environment and a financial services jurisdiction.  Cyprus' EU membership and its MiFID harmonized status enables CySEC regulated Firms to an immediate access and easy set up in prestigious financial markets within the EU (London, Frankfurt etc.).   

Our team of regulatory lawyers and compliance consultants guide our clients on setting up their FX Investment Brokerage business and Market Making firms under CySEC (MiFID), and operate as duly licensed and regulated investment services firms from Cyprus in the EU, Russia, the Middle East, Africa, Asia or other third countries.
