In this rating, there are 500 real reviews of 77 companies, as well as our experts (4) performed tests / reviews (77)

The largest exchange in the UK is the London Stock Exchange (LSE), which operates as a public limited company and is protected from government interference. The main features of this exchange are that the transactions carried out are public in nature, a large number of shares of foreign companies listed here are traded, registered shares and bonds are available. To conduct trade transactions on the LSE, you must contact any international (Saxo Bank, Just2Trade.online, Interactive Brokers, Exante.eu, etc.) or a brokerage company from the CIS (Finam, BCS, Otkritie, Aton, etc.) …

The UK is considered one of the first countries to regulate and control the relationship between a client and a financial intermediary (broker). The main regulatory body for Forex and the in the UK is the FCA. It is a controlling organization with deep cooperation with the PRA (supervisory authority for banks and other large financial institutions) and the Bank of England, financed by contributions from companies that have received licenses. A client who opens an account with a company registered in the UK can be sure that the broker not only provides a full range of tools, guarantees, service and world-class services, but also that its activities are closely monitored by the regulator. Otherwise, he simply would not have been able to provide services in this territory.

The main regulatory act followed by the FCA is the Financial Services Act 2012. For example, clients of a forex broker with an FCA license are protected from losses of up to GBP 50,000 thanks to the Financial Services Compensation Fund (FSCS). Recently, FCA-licensed companies have drastically limited leverage to 1 in 50. MiFID compliance is also important.
