Fullerton Markets joins Financial Commission as Approved Broker Member

abdelaziz Fathi

The Financial Commission has approved Asia-focused broker Fullerton Markets to obtain its membership, becoming the latest company to join the ranks of the self-regulatory organization.

Fullerton Markets status as an Approved Broker Members of the Financial Commission took effect on August 22, 2022. The milestone follows the approval of its membership application by the Financial Commission, which gives their traders further assurance that they are offered services of high quality that comply with the standards of the commission.

The addition of Fullerton Markets to its member roster also provides stakeholders with access to a wide range of services and membership benefits including, but not limited to, protection for up to €20,000 per the submitted complaint.

Registered in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Fullerton Markets offers a range of trading options, including Forex, contract-for-differences (CFDs), indices and bullion. Recently, the broker turned its focus on the service expansion and added MetaTrader 5 to its offerings. Furthermore, it is one of the few brokers that support deposits and withdrawals in cryptocurrencies.

Established in 2015, Fullerton Markets enjoys a strong presence in Asia, having developed a range of relationships with different firms in the region, particularly in the southeast of the continent.

“Fullerton Markets joins a diverse range of brokerages and independent service providers (ISPs) that utilize the services of the Financial Commission as part of their commitment to their clients while upholding membership requirements,” the statement further reads.

The Financial Commission is an independent international service that offers the resolution of disputes with the aim of resolving trader-broker conflicts. The commission is supported by the Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC), which in turn is comprised of recognized industry professionals. It operates as an independent international service that helps facilitate a simpler resolution process than through typical regulatory channels, such as arbitration or local court systems.

All clients of members of the Financial Commission are protected by the Compensation Fund which acts as an insurance policy.

The Financial Commission also issues execution certifications for approved brokers‎ as the industry-specific association attempts to reduce the number of execution-related disputes that occur before they progress into formal complaints.

According to its latest quarterly report, the self-regulator made progress across some of its key business drivers. Specifically, the number of new complaints increased 10 percent quarter-over-quarter as compensation sought from broker members rose 57 percent to $3.35 million.

Likewise, Financial-related complaints increased by 40 percent, which indicates a significant rise in disputes related to funds withdrawal. At the same time, complaints listed in the most valuable category ($10K+) jumped 70 percent in 1Q 2022. The number of resolved complaints increased 3 percent from the previous quarter, it says.
