Corporate Bank Accounts for Forex Brokers

Corporate bank accounts are an essential component of a forex broker’s initial launch and set up. It’s clear that without the ability to receive deposits and manage payments, the brokerage can never officially launch. For this reason, incorporating a new business entity and obtaining a bank account are one of the first steps in the process of building your own forex brokerage. Additionally, in order to gain access to a greater variety of banking & payment options,  your broker may also consider applying for a forex broker license.

The Pros & Cons of Regulation and How It Impacts Banking

The first step in the process is to asses where your broker currently stands. If you are an entrepreneur currently in the process of launching your own forex brokerage, then you must decide whether or not to obtain a forex broker license. Whether you are in the process of setting up a non-licensed broker in a St. Vincent & The Grenadines or Marshall Islands, or already have registration there, it’s important to highlight that banking solutions will be limited. The trade-off, however, is that costs are minimized when operating unlicensed.

If your brokerage cannot operate without a direct banking relationship, then our suggestion is to apply for a forex broker license. We generally encourage our clients to obtain a forex broker license, with banking being one of the main reasons behind our suggestion. It’s important to understand, however, that the majority of licenses require a significant investment of capital and may not be the best fit for each brokerage.
