Ukrainian Operations of Pepperstone Go On Normally

Those of you keeping an eye on the global political scenery could not have missed the latest news from Ukraine which is battered by severe tensions and conflicts. That is why the team of Forexbrokerz undertook an inquiry into the fortunes of Forex brokers with offices in Ukraine, asking them about how their business is holding up and whether they are experiencing any problems. 

 
The first Forex broker that has been so kind to reply to our questions is Australia's Pepperstone. As we reported in January this year, the broker has started an expansion push in Central and Eastern Europe by launching a dedicated website in Russian (www.pepperstone.ru) and by opening an office in Odessa to service its clients in the region. As you can see the launch of the office became reality just a couple of months before the geopolitical and military problems hit the country. 
 
In the face of the gloomy news that pour from media, the email that we got from Pepperstone's support team was rather positive. Here is an excerpt from it:
 
“Thankfully everything in our office is currently running without issues. 
 
Business continues as usual. “
 
 
The Pepperstone made a really wise choice in terms of picking a location for its office in Ukraine – as mentioned, it's in Odessa, which is far away from the embattled Crimea and Eastern parts of the country. Indeed, Odessa is a very beautiful city on the sea shore, famous for the peculiar sense of humor of its citizens. Talking of this city, other Forex brokers like Alpari RU have premises there.
 
Pepperstone is now offering its services to a growing Forex market – at least according to the latest study by UCRFIN, the self-regulatory body. The broker continues to expand its offering and recently enabled its clients in the region to make use of cTrader, the open-API Forex trading platform.
