Working with traders from all over the world, InstaForex caters to millions who look for favorable trading conditions and bonus programs as well as contests and giveaways.

CySEC-regulated FX broker InstaForex is celebrating its 15th anniversary, a milestone for the Limassol-headquartered online brokerage firm which has partnered with MetaQuotes right from the start, shortly after its foundation in 2007.

Offering the MetaTrader platform since the beginning, InstaForex has grown throughout the years into a reliable broker providing access to all global financial markets.

InstaForex has always been ahead of the trends within the trading industry, having been one of the first brokers to introduce trust management technologies, including the development of its own PAMM and ForexCopy systems.

InstaForex offers FX, CFDs, stocks, futures, options, and crypto

Working with traders from all over the world, InstaForex caters to millions who look for favorable trading conditions and bonus programs as well as contests and giveaways.

The broker has sponsored world-famous sports stars, including  Norwegian biathlete Ole Einar Bjørndalen, tennis players Victoria Azarenka and Daria Kasatkina, and is currently partnered with three-time Olympic swimming champion Yuliya Efimova, grandmaster Viswanathan Anand, top racer Ales Loprais, as well as world Muay Thai champion Vladimir Moravcik.

InstaForex also sponsors German football club Borussia Dortmund, Slovak hockey club Zvolen, US racing team Dragon Racing, and rally crew InstaForex Loprais Team.

The deal with Borussia Dortmund was renewed late last year after three consecutive football seasons. The FX and CFD broker has been the official partner of the German football club in Asia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) since 2019.

Last season, Borussia won the German Cup for the fifth time and InstaForex significantly expanded its customer base in a year of full blown COVID-19 pandemic. InstaForex’s clients gained access to VIP-experiences at the club’s stadium as well as a joint charity event with the club’s legend Jan Koller.

InstaForex provides access to trading of forex, CFDs, stocks, futures, options, and cryptocurrencies as the FX industry goes multi asset to address the needs of an increasingly demanding client base.

The broker has recently announced the availability of the InstaVerify mobile app for iOS gadgets, making it easier for clients to open a new account and verify personal data.

The Android InstaVerify version used to be the only option and has been already used by thousands of new InstaForex clients, according to the broker. A newcomer should sign up for either the Android or iOS version and upload scanned copies or photos of an ID. As soon as personal data is processed, this account will be recognized as verified. The second level of verification opens up more privileges.
