easyMarkets Acquires License From British Virgin Islands

easyMarkets has acquired a license from the British Virgin Islands (BVI) as the FX and CFD broker continually looks for new regulatory jurisdictions that can better benefit its customer base.

Its assertive expansion across the globe is requiring the trading firm to adopt infrastructure which ultimately protects clients and their funds.

Koula Lamprou, Chief Financial Officer at easyMarkets, commented: “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 license 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.”

easyMarkets was founded in 2001 and is now offering CFD trading to hundreds of thousands of clients, with unique risk management tools and other benefits such as negative balance protection and fixed spreads giving clients price transparency.

The broker provides access to multiple markets including currencies, precious and industrial metals, energy and agricultural commodities, cryptocurrencies, indices, and shares.

It was last week that easyMarkets announced the addition of shares trading to its offering as they are all the rage now as FX brokers go multi-asset to address an increasingly demanding group of traders.

Volatility in the stock market is shaming the currency world and the FX industry needs to cater to its clients’ needs. Enter easyMarkets, with its new expanded list of products on MT4 that includes U.S. and European listed shares.

Bringing some of the World’s most active and popular shares to the robust trading platform, the expanded offering provides more strategic choices and more news as both stock markets and public companies share a lot of data regarding earnings, costs, and even news regarding services and products.

Recently, the broker also launched its Bitcoin base currency account, allowing traders to deposit, trade, and withdraw in Bitcoin – but still have access to multiple markets, without the need to exchange their Bitcoin funds to FIAT currencies. This lowers the chance of funds lost due to exchange fees and fluctuations in prices of both cryptos and FIAT currencies.
