CySEC Publishes Warning List of Over 100 Brokerages

Cyprus’s watchdog has urged investors not to trade with the following list of unauthorised forex and binary options brokers.

One of the leading regulators for the European retail forex and CFDs trading industry, the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) today published a statement warning investors and the public about a number of websites currently in operation and offering their services to the public. Although many of these firms may be regulated by other global jurisdictions, they are not owned or operated by Cyprus Investment Firms (CIFs) and are thus not authorised by CySEC to provide investment services.

CySEC is the independent public supervisory authority responsible for the supervision of the investment services market and transactions in transferable securities carried out in Cyprus. Its mission is to exercise effective supervision to ensure investor protection and the healthy development of the securities market.

The watchdog has reiterated that investors should be duly cautious and consult its website to confirm that a given institution is authorised to provide investment services in or from Cyprus prior to conducting business with it.
