Alpari announced today that they have reached the one million milestone for opened accounts at the broker. The figure includes accounts opened at their RU (www.alpari.ru) and offshore (www.alpari-forex.com) entities and doesn’t include accounts from the former Alpari UK or US units.
Alpari hit the one million account milestone after launching at the end of 1998, and having announced that they topped the 100,000 account barrier in 2009. In terms of total active month accounts, when contacted by Forex Magnates, Alpari didn’t provide a specific number, but related that they were comfortable with estimates from the Interfax CEA FX Survey. In that report, Alpari was estimated as having 120,000 active traders.

To increase this number to one million, Alpari took only 6 years. The main credit for this belongs to, of course, our team – focused and professional. Alpari has always been focused on the customer: the best trading conditions, the most convenient services, advanced technical solutions, so the result is natural.”
