Forex Capital Markets was founded in 1999 and had been headquartered in London. The broker is regulated by top-tier regulatory boards, which means it is a low-risk brokerage firm. FXCM is a subsidiary of the publicly-listed company Jefferies Financial Group Inc., which is listed on the Fortune 500.
Since its founding, the broker has grown and had established international offices. It is also licensed in many regulatory boards globally. It exited the U.S. markets in 2017, which means that the broker no longer accepts clients based in the United States.
