Trust

4.0
How Do We Test A Broker's Trust?
When choosing a broker, trustworthiness is one of the most important things to keep in mind. Always check the broker's regulations, know how financially secure the firm is, and find out whether the broker is transparent and reliable. These factors, calculated into our score, will help you understand if your money is safe.

See More

Exness has 14 years of operating history and is regulated by multiple entities across the globe. While Exness has entities regulated by top tier CySEC and the UK FCA, it does not accept retail clients in Europe or the UK. Retail customers are assigned to entities regulated offshore, offering few protections.

 

Exness on the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Register

In our trust category, we place most importance on how a broker is regulated. So let’s dive in and take a look at how the different entities of Exness across the globe are regulated and how this impacts you as a trader. We rate regulators on a scale of 1 to 3, with 1 reflecting the highest level of trust.

  • Exness (UK) Ltd. is an Investment Firm, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the United Kingdom under the Financial Services Register number 730729. We rate the FCA as a Tier 1 regulator.
  • Exness (Cy) Ltd. is a Cyprus Investment Firm, authorised and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) with licence number 178/12. We rate CySEC as a Tier 1 regulator.
  • Exness ZA (PTY) Ltd. is authorized by the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) in South Africa as a Financial Service Provider (FSP) with FSP number 51024. We rate FSCA as a Tier 2 regulator.
  • Exness (SC) Ltd is authorised and regulated by the Seychelles Financial Services Authority (FSA) with licence number SD025. We rate the FSA as a Tier 3 regulator.
  • Exness B.V. is a Securities Intermediary authorised and regulated by the Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten with licence number 0003LSI. We rate Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten as a Tier 3 regulator.
  • Exness (VG) Ltd is authorised by the Financial Services Commission (FSC) in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) with registration number 2032226 and investment business licence number SIBA/L/20/1133. We rate FSC as a Tier 3 regulator.
  • Tortelo Limited is authorised by the Financial Services Commission (FSC) in Mauritius with registration number 176967. We rate FSC as a Tier 3 regulator.

Why is it important to know where your broker subsidiary (entity) is regulated?

Different regulators provide different levels of protection. For example, Exness clients in the United Kingdom benefit from the oversight of the FCA. The FCA requires that clients have negative balance protection, which means that they cannot lose more than their deposit. Client funds must be held in segregated accounts, which are protected in the event of a broker going bankrupt.

In addition, when trading with a broker authorised by the FCA, client funds are also protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS protects investments of up to £85,000 if a firm becomes insolvent. By contrast, a trader working with a broker entity regulated offshore would not have these benefits guaranteed to them.

In the table below we break down the mandated protections and benefits by entity, regulator and region.

Entity Exness (UK) Ltd. Exness (Cy) Ltd. Exness ZA (PTY) Ltd. Exness (SC) Ltd. Exness B.V. Exness (VG) Ltd. Tortelo Limited
Country/Region United Kingdom Europe South Africa Seychelles Curaçao and Sint Maarten British Virgin Islands Mauritius
Regulation FCA CySEC FSCA FSA CBC FSC FSC
Segregated Funds Yes Yes Yes No No No No
Negative Balance Protection Yes Yes No No No No No
Compensation Scheme Yes Yes No No No No No

Regulatory requirements are subject to change. The data listed above was gathered in February 2022.

Stability and Transparency

In our tests for the Trust category we also cover factors relating to stability and transparency. Here, we focus on how long the broker has been in business, the size of the company and how transparent they are in terms of information being readily available.

Exness has a substantial operating history of 14 years. According to their LinkedIn page, the company is headquartered in Limassol, Cyprus and has over 1,000 employees in offices located in Asia and Europe.

In our research, Exness showed an average level of transparency in their regulatory status, with a listing of all their entities and their regulators on their Regulation page. However, with so many offshore entities it is not clear which entity you would be assigned to if you open an account. Trading costs are covered in detail on the Fees page.

We would have liked to see more information on the background and history of the company on the website, as there is no page dedicated to this. The Client Agreement document is available on the Legal Documents page.

Fees

4.0
How Do We Test A Broker's Fees?
Broker fees can be difficult to understand. We test the broker's platforms and examine commissions, spreads, and overnight fees to ensure that you can determine if trading with this broker is worth your time and money.

See More

Exness offers fairly competitive spreads in their standard account and even tighter spreads are available via their professional account. Swap fees and non-trading related fees are minimal at this broker.

 

Exness Fees

In the Standard Account, Exness earns money mainly from spreads (the gap between the bid and offer prices of an asset).

Trading Fees

We tested the spreads at Exness across different asset classes in a Standard Account using the Trading Terminal platform. The test was done at 8AM GMT and at 3PM GMT on February 22nd 2022. We made our tests at two different times to allow greater perspective. 8AM GMT is the London open, when there is a great deal of liquidity in the forex market and therefore tighter spreads in currency pairs. 3PM GMT is a quieter time, shortly before the opening of the New York stock exchange.

Instrument Spread AM Spread PM
EUR/USD 1 1
GBP/JPY 2 2
Gold 2 2
WTI Oil 0.06 0.06
Apple n/a 0.09
Tesla n/a 0.56
Dow 30 7.6 7.8
Dax 30 7.1 6.3

Spreads in forex, stocks and commodities are relatively competitive within the industry. However, the spreads in indices are rather wide.

Swap Fees

Exness does not charge swap fees for stocks, crypto, indices, gold along with some popular currencies depending on your account settings.

Exness has two swap-free levels: Extended and Standard. The difference is in the amount of instruments you can keep overnight without being charged.

With the standard swap-free level, no swap fees are charged for XAU/USD, indices, cryptocurrencies or stocks. Swaps are charged for all other instruments.

With the extended swap-free level, no swap fees are charged for AUD/NZD, AUD/USD, EUR/CHF, EUR/USD, GBP/JPY, GBP/USD, NZD/USD, USD/CAD, USD/CHF, USD/JPY, USOIL, AUD/CHF, AUD/JPY, EUR/AUD, EUR/CAD, EUR/GBP, EUR/JPY, EUR/NZD, GBP/CHF, GBP/NZD, NZD/JPY, NZD/CAD, XAU/USD, indices, cryptocurrencies, and stocks. Swap fees are charged for all other metals, minor pairs, exotic pairs and UKOIL.

To get the extended swap-free level, you need to trade mostly within the day and keep a small amount of overnight positions.

We measured the cost of swaps in EUR/USD and GBP/JPY and recorded the overnight charges/credit as follows.

Instrument Swap Long Swap Short
EUR/USD Charge of $3.53 Credit of $0.96
GBP/JPY Charge of $0.91 Charge of $2.89

The data above was recorded on February 21th 2022.

Non-Trading Fees

Exness does not charge an inactivity fee and there are no deposit or withdrawal fees.

Are Fees at Exness Competitive?

Fees at Exness are somewhat competitive and this broker deserves credit for keeping swap fees and non-trading fees to a bare minimum.

Platforms and Tools

4.5
How Do We Test A Broker's Platforms and Tools?
Platforms are where you trade, so they must be secure, fast, and accessible while offering you the tools you need to succeed. Each broker's desktop, web, and mobile platforms are evaluated according to the order types, speed of execution, ease of use, and other 'need to know' features.

Tradable Instruments

4.1
How Do We Test A Broker's Tradable Instruments?
In this section, we check the broker’s market offering and how varied the instruments and asset classes are. It will allow you to check if they offer what you're looking for and what you can trade.

See More

Exness has a good range of instruments available to trading, including forex and CFDs on commodities, stocks, indices and cryptocurrencies. However, it does not come close to the range of tradable assets offered by industry leaders.

CFDs (Contract for Differences) are financial derivative products that allow traders to speculate in various markets without owning the underlying assets. Tradable instruments at Exness include the following assets:

  • 97 Currency Pairs. A currency pair combines two different currencies, with the value of one currency quoted against the other. For example EUR/USD, which reflects the value of the euro measured in dollars.
  • 10 Indices. An index is a basket of trading instruments that is used to gauge a market sector, stocks within an exchange or the economy of a country.
  • 35 Cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, are digital currencies that are secured by cryptography.
  • 90 Stock CFDs. A stock is a security that represents partial ownership of a corporation. Keep in mind that when trading stock CFDs you are speculating on the price of a stock without actually taking ownership of the underlying company.
  • 6 Commodity CFDs. Commodities are raw products, such as gold and oil.

In the tables below, you can see a selection highlighting the variety of instruments available at Exness:

Forex Major Forex Minor
EUR/USD | GBP/USD | USD/JPY EUR/CHF | CAD/JPY | GBP/AUD
Stock CFDs Cryptocurrencies
Apple | Tesla | Amazon Bitcoin | Litecoin | Ripple
Indices Commodity CFDs
Dax 30 | Hong Kong 50 | US Tech 100 Palladium | WTI Crude Oil | Silver

Disclaimer: CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage.

In the category of Tradable Instruments, Exness is strongest in forex and has a relatively sparse offering in commodities and stocks.

We tested support with a variety of questions. These ranged from the basic, for example, ‘what is the maximum leverage available’ to more complex inquiries such as ‘how are orders executed at Exness?’. Overall we received a good quality of response.

Leverage

One of the reasons that traders are attracted to the forex and CFD markets is the high degree of available leverage. Leverage is the use of borrowed funds to increase the size of your trading positions beyond what would be possible using only the cash in your account.

The default leverage at Exness is 1:2000. This is a very high level of available leverage. It means that with an account of $1,000 you can control up to $2000,000 worth of positions in the market. Leverage is often described as a ‘double-edged sword’ as it can hurt you as much as it helps you. Traders must remember that it can amplify both their profits and their losses.

In some instances Exness offers unlimited leverage. To access unlimited leverage the trading account must have equity of less than $1,000. In addition, the trader must have closed at least 10 positions (excluding pending orders) and 5 lots (or 500 cent lots) across all real accounts.

Demo Accounts

Exness offers demo accounts for both the Trading Terminal platform and MetaTrader. This is especially important for beginners as it enables them to practice their strategies and get comfortable with the trading platform without risking any real money.

The demo account features live quotes and simulates live market conditions in assets such as forex and CFDs on commodities, indices and stocks. Once you have got up to speed on a demo account, you can easily switch over to a live account.

Islamic Accounts

Exness does offer swap free Islamic accounts but only for residents of Islamic countries.

Supported Countries

In mainland Europe and the UK, Exness focuses on B2B financial services exclusively offered to Professional institutions. Exness accepts retail clients from the majority of countries outside Europe.

Exness does not accept clients from the United States of America, American insular areas (American Samoa, Baker Island, Guam, Howland Island, Kingman Reef, Northern Mariana Islands, Midway Islands, Wake Island, Palmyra Atoll, Jarvis Island, Johnston Atoll, Navassa Island, United States Minor Outlying Islands), Vatican City, Puerto Rico, Marshall Islands, US Virgin Islands).
