    Suspicious forex supervision: Why is The Financial Commission needed additionally besides FCA?

    Abstract:The United Kingdom has the most well-established and sound financial services in the world. In particular, the well-known regulatory body FCA is becoming a standard in the forex industry, which has made the world place more trust in the British regulatory system. The influence of FCA is deep and extensive for all forex brokers over time.

      The significance of regulators to forex is like that of legislation to a country. A country without law will be full of danger. The same is true of the forex industry. Forex companies without regulators seem like a dangerous bomb, and your assets can be swallowed up at any time. However, the forex industry has lots of illegal brokers and informal regulatory bodies also exist at the same time. These regulatory bodies are not qualified enough to regulate a forex broker. Many so-called financial regulators come from a variety of backgrounds in order to make money. Some exist in the form of companies that provide regulatory services and are not subject to local government administration. Some are directly independent, advertising and disguising themselves as official regulators. A real regulatory body must be one that is established, administrated and authorized by the government.

      WikifX received many complainants from Nigerians, and found that lots of illegal brokers active in the forex market hold unknown regulatory licenses, and the most popular license among these is from The Financial Commission of the United Kingdom. Many brokers under its regulation listed on its official website are also found illegal.

      So, is the Financial Commission a formal regulatory body?

      After investigation, WikiFX found the Financial Commission is an informal regulatory body, or to say this “Financial Commission” is simply a self-claimed title. However, they claimed to operate in a way where transparency, swiftness, and education are the paramount values to protect each traders interests and to solve their asset disputes of forex, cryptocurrency and blockchain.

      The following two points explain why it is an informal regulatory body.

      Firstly:

      The Financial Commission is called “FINACOM PLC LTD” on their website. This is unreasonable, because a regulator should be part of the government rather than a private-own business. The forex regulatory body should be authorized by the local government. In other words, the forex regulator belongs to the government, and isn‘t a private company. Therefore, if you see a regulator with a company name like LTD, it shows that it’s unreliable and illegal.

      Secondly:

      As we all know, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is a well-known regulator in the UK. And every country only has one regulator as a government body.

      Even when the government has many regulatory authorities, those authorities work in different financial fields. It can be said that generally there‘re no more than 2 forex regulators in a country or region. The Financial Commission offers forex regulatory services, but it’s a private company. Here, it is worthy to say that the companies that are not recognized officially will turn to private ones, which are relatively more free to provide the so-called regulatory service.

      Furthermore, from the official website of “our member” it can be seen that they have list all forex brokers that they regulated. However, most of these forex brokers have low credit scores on WikiFX, or have even been exposed by WikiFX already, such as Olymptrade and Binomo.

      It can be seen from the following picture that nearly all the brokers from this website have poor score on WikiFX. Most brokers have scores less than 2.

      All in all, compared with FCA, its hard to say whether the Financial Commission aims to seek more benefits in the name of regulators or provide a really effective solution for traders, but according to the above analysis, the Financial Commission does not have the characteristics and attributes of a credible regulatory body. Moreover, it is an indisputable fact that the brokers under its regulation have defrauded traders many times.
