Alvexo Review

History and Background

After the financial crisis in Cyprus in 2013, many forex brokers departed the scene, especially after the Cyprus Securities & Exchange Commission (CySEC) adopted several new compliance regulations that strengthened the existing regulatory environment on this tiny island. Alvexo.com, however, is an exception. This forex broker and investment company welcomed the improved regulatory regime, sought and received licensing in 2014, and opened its doors for business in January of 2015. They are new, but experienced in the industry, and they claim that you can “trade anytime and anywhere using the latest software innovations.” The firm is operated by VPR Safe Financial Group Limited, a limited liability company, recognized as a Cyprus Investment Firm. Alvexo is headquartered in Limassol, Cyprus.



Alvexo offers a broad array of trading instruments, ranging from currency pairs to CFDs for commodities, stocks, and indices. New regulatory rules require that client deposits be segregated from operating capital in fiduciary accounts, that order executions follow stated guidelines, and that all trading session and personal data be encrypted using the latest in 256-bit SSL encryption technology. The management team elected to use the popular Metatrader4 downloadable platform, but you may also choose from their web-based trading system or go with a mobile application. There are no restrictions on trading strategies, as you might find at most other brokers, since the MT4 protocols enable trading robots, auto-trading EAs, and scalping. Another plus is that free trading signals are updated twice daily. Social trading is available on their web-trader format.

There are four account classifications at Alvexo, each with escalating benefits and features that appeal to all trading skill levels. Islamic accounts and free demo trading accounts are also available. Spreads are priced by account type and can be as low as 0.1 pip with the ECN account option. Leverage for currency pairs can be as high as 400:1, while CFDs can get up to 50:1 for some asset choices. Alvexo excels in the area of support materials provided by its Trading Academy, with an abundance of training videos, trading tools, and daily market commentary prepared by in-house economists and seasoned brokers. Alvexo is a full-service broker that is committed, as per their mission statement, “to empower and educate our clients, and to offer them the best possible investment terms and environment for generating the best returns on their investment.”
