Is Cysec regulation/authority reliable in terms of financial distress?

I often see the traders recommending Cysec regulated firms and brokers. Does that actually help in case of insolvency with brokers.

Best thing about regulations - the safety net! Feel relieved that I have somewhere to approach if need be. I never ever take a chance with my investments, going to any hillbilly broker. Stick to CySec regulated brokers as I know they can be approached if you feel wronged. However it’s best to contact the broker first - protocol!

I second your opinion, there’s a degree of control with the trader. But I guess the topic itself is overstated. Haven’t faced any issues since last 2 years with my brokers (IG, XTB) who are regulated by Cysec.

Yes, Cysec reagulated brokers are more reliable if we look at the side of fund security

User of Fxview so I know it is regulated as well.

But better to see the stats on the official cysec gov website.

FYI...The ICF compensates clients up to €20,000 if a broker is rendered insolvent. So all you people insecure with your money yet wanting to trade in the high risk biz of trading, this one’s for you.

Yes, off course without a doubt CySec regulated brokers are the best choice. When any broker is under the surveillance of regulation, the interest of the trader is automatically protected. Your funds are secured, no trade manipulation is possible and you get a superior power to take your complaints if the broker does something against your will.

The more your practice, the more you learn.

I believe Cysec follows MiFID guidelines, which if I’m not wrong further checks if the brokers are following Cysec’s financial guidelines or not.

Why just stop at cysec, I would check for other licenses too - ACPR, FCA, etc. ?
