Who we are and what we do
We’re a Scandinavian-owned fintech company with a straightforward purpose: to make trading simple and accessible to everyone in a transparent and secure environment. We don’t believe in trading for just traders. We believe in trading for everyone.
We are based in four sunny locations – Cyprus, Malta, Spain and Seychelles – from where we’re building a revolutionary trading platform.
Our HQ is in Nicosia, Cyprus, and we’re licensed by Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) and Seychelles Financial Service Authority (FSA). With us you can trade over 800 forex and CFD financial instruments, including currency pairs, shares of your favourite companies, crypto currencies, popular commodities and indices from around the world. All trades are done using forex or contract for difference.
You can trade on our platform on desktop, mobile or by downloading our app from Google Play or the App Store.
