The ultimate IG Markets review test - 2020

A broker at the top of its game: safe, quality platform, competitive spreads

★★★★

Founded in 2007 in Sydney, AxiTrader launched its London brand in 2012, and its China operations in 2015, before reaching $100 billion in monthly client trading volume – which coincided with its expansion into the Middle East, Germany, and Latin America in 2016.

Today the AxiTrader brand maintains regulation with the UK’s FCA under its London-based entity, AxiCorp Limited, and with ASIC in Australia under AxiCorp Financial Services Pty Ltd, where it maintains an AFS license. In August 2016, AxiCorp announced that it received a significant strategic investment from RGT – a prominent Australian private equity firm – to help fuel its global growth. AxiTrader obtained regulatory status with the DFSA in Dubai in 2018, and was also granted a license that year by the FMA in New Zealand, expanding its global regulatory footprint.

AxiTrader is predominantly a MetaTrader-broker, offering Forex and CFD traders over 80 currency pairs and 65 CFDs on commodities, metal, indices, and bitcoin, across its Standard and PRO MetaTrader 4 (MT4) Account offering. AxiTrader also offers its premium MT4 NextGen add-on package for clients with at least $1,000 on deposit and provides several social-copy trading platforms and tools.
