Introduction to this section

Through its service over the years, allFX-Consult saw a need for a more educated industry, relative to the solutions/options an investor has when deciding on how to move forward.

The aim of this section is to provide information to investors looking into EU/Offshore options to Start a Forex Brokerage or expand their current operations. Although in some regions we include broker information (trading conditions, leverage), it is not intended to be used by a forex trader as an investment advice or to compare and evidently open an account with one of our listed brokers.
