Alpari, founded in 1998, is a leading online Forex, Spot metal, stocks and CFD broker that offers traders a wide range of quality trading services. First started as a small provincial outfit, Alpari today has grown into one of the largest brands in the online trading industry. The broker owes its success to the dedication and devotion that it has shown to its one million clients plus that have signed up for it. Today, Alpari is continuing to develop and innovate to ensure that their clients can trade the financial markets in the best possible condition. Registered in Belize and on the islands of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Alpari is regulated by the Belize International Financial Services Commission and the Financial Services Authority of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The broker is also a member of the Financial Commission, an international dispute resolution organization for the forex trading industry.
Working with a regulated broker offers traders a recourse should the firm become insolvent. It also means that the broker must retain high levels of transparency and funding in all of their dealings. Plus they must keep traders funds in segregated bank accounts to protect the traders from their exposure levels.
Alpari is an international firm which falls under the regulatory purview of two separate regulators:
- Belize International Financial Services Commission license no. 20389 IBC 2012
- Financial Services Authority of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines under license no. IFSC/60/301/TS/17.
Operational for nearly 2 decades, Alpari has over the years earned a reputation as a reliable broker – one that acts with honesty and transparency. Regulated in multiple jurisdictions, the broker complies with all international laws and maintained their operations to the industry standard. In recognition of Alpari’s achievements and contributions to the online forex trading industry, the broker has received numerous awards for industrial expertise over the years.

In 2013, Alpari was named “Best Broker in Europe 2013” and “Best Broker in Russia and CIS 2013” by International Finance Magazine.
In addition to their outstanding performance, as mentioned earlier Alpari is able to reassure their traders that it is not a scam by being regulated in two different jurisdictions, which is the Belize International Financial Services Commission and the Financial Services Authority of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. This means that Alpari’s operations are in compliance with international legislation. With more than a million registered accounts, Alpari has proven that it has won the trust of traders from all over the world.
