FX Group is one of a few brokerages to offer forex products in the Georgian market, though it’s not licensed by the National Bank of Georgia which polices the industry in the Caucasian nation. The company operates as an offshore provider of financial services. It is not licensed by any financial regulator and it doesn’t claim any regulatory status in any jurisdiction.
Following the acceptance of its application by FinaCom PLC, FX Group has obtained A-category membership, which guarantees that clients are under the protection of an international organization and that the services provided to them are of high quality and comply with the standards of the watchdog.
All clients of member companies are protected by the Compensation Fund, which acts as an insurance policy. FX Group’s status as an A-category member means that its traders can be eligible for compensation of up to $20,000 per submitted claim and have access to all dispute resolution services offered by the Commission.
