Seychelles Forex License

The Seychelles are an independent democratic republic and established offshore financial center. Part of the British Commonwealth, the island nation is extraordinarily stable and boasts the highest per capita wealth in the African region. A carefully crafted financial services sector has catapulted the relatively small nation into a leading offshore destination.

As a global player in the international financial services markets, the dollar is widely accepted and the nation’s banking and money remittance sectors are fully developed and United States dollar-friendly. The Seychelles offers no tax on offshore profits and a streamlined, cost-effective corporate formation process. While part of the Commonwealth, the nation’s court system is designed to dissuade the registration of foreign judgments. For such reasons, sophisticated financial services organizations have flocked to the Seychelles.

The Seychelles is an ideal location for promoters of Forex businesses. The Seychelles offers a Security Dealers License which covers all related forex activity, including both acting as an introducing broker and direct broker. The licensure is recognized world-wide and many top forex brokers are licensed in Seychelles. In addition, the process of obtaining a license is both cost effective and can be accomplished quickly.
