The Financial Commission is an independent international service that offers the resolution of disputes with the aim of resolving trader-broker conflicts. The commission is supported by the Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC), which in turn is comprised of recognized industry professionals. It operates as an independent international service that helps facilitate a simpler resolution process than through typical regulatory channels, such as arbitration or local court systems.

All clients of members of the Financial Commission are protected by the Compensation Fund which acts as an insurance policy. The organization also issues execution certifications for approved brokers‎ as the industry-specific association attempts to reduce the number of execution-related disputes that occur before they progress into formal complaints.
