Is XM a trustworthy broker?

The most relevant question is, is it a reliable firm, and can I trust my money to XM?

A way to understand if a Broker is reliable is through the strictness of the public entities regulating its operations. In other words, if a top-tier government entity controls a Broker, it would be an excellent indicator to demonstrate that the broker is safe to deposit funds and operate with the platform. XM is regulated in 3 different jurisdictions:

  • In Cyprus, by CySec (Cyprus Stock Market Commission): Trading Point of Financial Instruments Ltd is licensed by CySEC under license number 120/10

  • In Australia, by the ASIC (Australian Securities and Investment Commission): Trading Point of Financial Instruments Pty Ltd has obtained the Australian Financial Services License by ASIC (number 443670)

  • In Belize, by the IFSC (Belize International Financial Services Commission), XM Global Limited is licensed by IFSC under license number IFSC / 60/354 / TS / 19.

Considering that very strict government entities regulate XM, we can confidently say it's a  trustworthy firm, given that it complies with strict regulations.
