easyMarkets is a trusted brand in the retail trading space. Its new operating license from the British Virgin Islands (BVI) will help the broker provide reliable and regulated trading services.
BVI Regulatory Oversight
easyMarkets is already regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). But its new license from the BVI will help ensure the broker provides robust trading services across its client base.
Regulatory oversight is great news for traders. It typically means additional capital protection, stringent account requirements, plus a series of compliance measures that brokers need to follow. Licensing conditions can also help manage the financial incentives and leverage offered to traders.
Koula Lamprou, Chief Financial Officer at easyMarkets, had this to say of the news: “At easyMarkets, we always try to find ways to give our clients an exceptional trading experience. Oversight, regulation and security are indivisible parts of that. Our new BVI license adds to our already robust list of licenses that include European oversight by ESMA and CySEC, Australian ASIC license for our APAC based activities and FSA licence for global/international clients. We have been operating uninterrupted in the trading industry for 20 years and one of our missions has always been to grow our regulatory framework which better serves our clients.”
