  • What is required of a broker-dealers AML program?

    Companies from the trade finance sphere are often subject to AML regulations in order to combat financial crimes. The list of such companies may include wealthtech and investment funds, DMA/CFD brokerage companies, crowdfunding and investment marketplaces. Their AML compliance programs usually include know your customer (KYC) procedures and CDD procedures. The standard KYC for broker dealers includes ID and proof of address verification, AML screening and ongoing monitoring, as well as source of funds verification for risky clients.

  • What is KYC in forex?

    KYC stands for Know Your Customer. It means verification of client identities during onboarding. Under Anti-Money Laundering (AML) obligations, trading companies must conduct KYC to ensure that their customers are trusted individuals. To conduct verification fast and properly, such companies often use specialized KYC solutions for forex brokers.

  • How are forex brokers regulated?

    To comply with AML/CTF regulations, forex platforms need to enact policies and procedures that combat all forms of financial crime. The AML process for forex brokers includes setting up adequate internal systems for spotting suspicious activities and reporting them to authorities. In addition, robust Customer Due Diligence (CDD) and Know Your Customer (KYC) procedures should be applied to verify customers and take precautions against money laundering and terrorist financing risks.

  • Who regulates FX?

    As FX trading is a global activity, there isn’t one set of regulations that applies to all forex platforms. Instead, there are multiple types of regulations, which vary depending on the jurisdiction where forex platforms operate. So, KYC/AML requirements for forex platforms depend on the regulatory body in each particular country, e.g. FCA in the UK or CySEC in Cyprus.
