ETX Capital Review

ETX Capital Review

ETX Capital, founded in 2002 and domiciled in the UK, is authorized and regulated by the Financial Services Authority. It is a member firm of the London Stock Exchange and offers multi-asset and multi-market derivatives through CFDs and spread betting products to individuals and institutions based in Europe and other locations.

In March 2015 ETX Capital acquired the client base of Alpari UK. In order to make the transition as simple as possible for Alpari clients, ETX Capital has taken steps to make their trading environment as familiar as possible and has installed MT4 servers similar to those used by Alpari.

They have also set up a dedicated help line for ex-Alpari clients to help them get their money back as soon as possible.
