About Us

We’ve been writing our story since 2001

Simply honest. It is not only our basic philosophy; simply honest is also our business model and innovation code: easy, transparent, accessible and friendly.

Our Values

Simple

We have tried to make the process of trading as simple as possible. One of the first to offer online trading, our platform was developed to be as user-friendly as possible and ensure it is still powerful and versatile enough for experienced traders.

Honest

We never adjust our trading conditions in response to market volatility. Fixed spreads and no slippage on our web platform means you know your costs before trading. We are regulated by both CySEC in Europe and ASIC in the Asian Pacific Region.

Transparent

We believe in transparency and we are proud to be a market maker. Trading is never disabled during market volatility or important economic calendar events. Even during extreme events like the Swiss Franc peg removal, the Brexit referendum, the Trump electoral win or the insane moves of the cryptocurrencies.

Our Story

easyMarkets was founded on the idea of democratizing trading. Back in 2001 when easyMarkets was founded, the only way to trade was through a physical trading room as a wealthy individual or an institutional client. If you didn’t have an initial investment of tens of thousands of dollars or more it was impossible to trade. Our purpose was to give market access to anyone that wanted it.

We ended up fundamentally changing the online trading industry – which only offered Forex at the time. In 2001 we accepted initial deposits from $25, that could be funded online via credit card – instead of lengthy bank transfer. Our customers responded with loyalty and helped us grow. Over the years we expanded our CFD offerings to include global indices, energy, metals and more. In 2016 we rebranded from easy-forex to easyMarkets.

We managed to democratize trading, make it accessible and easier – but there is always more we can offer our customers.

We were the first to offer a true online trading platform that you could not lose more than what you invested.

We continued innovating - offering valuable trading tools and conditions such as free guaranteed stop loss, insideViewer, Freeze Rate – and our most innovative tool yet: dealCancellation*.

 

"Our goal is to keep traders safe especially when trading in such volatile conditions. The Brexit event was the perfect scenario for us to show that we honour our promises to our traders"
