The broker will receive a wide range of services and benefits, but the most important one being the fund protection of up to €20,000 per client, which is backed by the Financial Commissions Compensation Fund.

      In case of any disputes between the broker and its clients, the self-regulatory body will act as a third-party mediator to resolve the complaints.

      “For approved members and their clients participating in CFDs, foreign exchange (forex), and cryptocurrency markets, the Financial Commission helps facilitate a simpler, swifter resolution process than through typical regulatory channels such as arbitration or local court systems,” FinCom explained.



      IC Markets is one of the top brokers in terms of trading volume and is operating at a global scale with licenses from regulators in Australia, Cyprus, Seychelles, and the Bahamas.

      Its membership with FinCom came when the broker is aggressively promoting its brand to push its services globally. The broker recently inked sponsorship deals with 12 football clubs across Germany and Spain.

      Meanwhile, FinCom is adding many brokers as its members since the beginning of this year, that includes Exness and Fxview, while handing out quality certification to several other brokers.
