Rick Steves

Membership provides the FX and CFD brokerage firm and its customers with access to a wide range of services and membership benefits including, but not limited to, protection of up to €20,000 per client, backed by the EDR’s compensation fund.

The Financial Commission has approved Inveslo as the newest member of the self-regulatory organization as independent external dispute resolution (EDR) services grow in popularity among FX industry participants.

The membership took effect on February 10, 2020, which means the online brokerage and its customers will from now on have support from the Financial Commission as an unbiased 3rd party mediation platform that helps resolve complaints in instances when parties are unable to directly come to an agreement over disputes.

Inveslo helps IBs and money managers launch FX trading

Inveslo was founded by Farrukh Adeeb, the former Global Head of Business Development at FXTM, who launched the new brokerage as a specialist in flexible partnership solutions.

The firm delivers services designed to meet the needs of individual introducers, money managers, and educators who want to offer Retail Forex Trading to their clients.

Inveslo operates as a counterparty to the Exinity Group for liquidity and has opened business development offices in the Middle East, Latin America, and Southeast Asia last year as the broker expands across the globe.

Catering individual clients with dedicated managers, customized packages, and tools that are available for clients from entry-level to professional level, Inveslo will add education programs such as information guides, tutorials, and articles.

Inveslo boasts more than 300 trading instruments in forex, stock CFDs, commodities, indices, and cryptocurrencies.

Swifter resolution and protection of up to €20,000 per client

In such a global and complex industry, most participants prefer to avoid the typical regulatory channels such as arbitration or local court systems.

The Financial Commission specializes in providing a simpler, swifter resolution process for clients participating in CFDs, foreign exchange (forex), and cryptocurrency markets.

Membership provides the brokerage firm and its customers with access to a wide range of services and membership benefits including, but not limited to, protection of up to €20,000 per client, backed by the EDR’s compensation fund.
