Kazakhstan Forex License

Flexible leverage, market making permissions and a relatively quick approval process are just a few of the reasons to consider a forex broker license in Kazakhstan.

The Astana International Financial Centre (AIFC) has emerged as the premiere fintech hub for financial services in Kazakhstan. In a recent decision, the AFSA, which is the regulatory body overseeing forex & CFD activity in Kazakhstan, partnered with the Kazakhstan Financial Centre to update its regulatory framework. As a result, Kazakhstan now offers a far comprehensive approach to financial services, including the regulation of forex & CFDs. This makes Kazakhstan an excellent choice for any forex broker seeking regulation in Central Asia.
