Regulatory Measures Are Key

One of the most common questions we get asked by potential traders is “Is GFE Markets a regulated Forex brokerage?”. Everyone at GFE Markets, from the top down, always gives the same answer, “no”. So, it’s at this moment when you should be wondering how us not being regulated impacts you and your investment. Does the fact that GFE Markets isn’t regulated mean that we shouldn’t be trusted by you? Does it mean that we’ll steal your funds from under your nose? Is GFE Markets the sort of Forex broker that’ll trick you into investing more than you could afford? The answer to all those questions is a resounding “no!”

Protecting What Matters, You

You are our number one priority. Without our traders, GFE Markets is a shell. You and every other trader we have are what makes us! The good news is that we’re currently in the process of becoming a regulated brokerage. Full disclosure; we applied in March 2022. The good news is that because we already act like a regulated brokerage, the process of us gaining our regulatory licence will be expedited.

Here’s how GFE Markets treats every trader and every transaction like we’re already a regulated brokerage:

Getting Our Regulatory Licence

Getting Our Regulatory Licence

We’ve given you a small sample of the things the GFE Markets Management Team has implemented to ensure we act like a tier one regulated Forex brokerage.

Our stringent policies and procedures are there to ensure that we protect you and all our traders. Are we obliged to carry out AML or KYC? No, we’re not, but we do this because we want to ensure you are safeguarded at every turn.

What’s Expected From You, Our Trader?

We know how urgent it might seem for you to get a GFE Markets trading account and jump right into making trades. It’s exciting, but we need you to understand that it’s massively risky, too. So, as a GFE Markets trader, we ask that you do your bit to ensure that you are following the rules. If members of the GFE Markets Team ask for any documents from you, such as PoA (Proof of Address), go ahead and give it to them. They’re asking as part of their KYC process. Remember, this is for your own good.
