RoboForex Sets Roots in Australia, Registers New Company

RoboForex, the Forex broker based in New Zealand, is increasing its global footprint via the establishment of a new company in Australia. The new business is named RoboForex (AU) Pty Ltd and its current physical address is Dundas Valley NSW 2117. For those unfamiliar with the geography of the Land Down Under, we must clarify that Dundas Valley is a suburb of Sydney, so the broker is targeting one of the world's leading economic centers. 


RoboForex (AU) Pty Ltd has already managed to obtain registration with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) - the Australian company number (ACN) of the new business is 167235332, in case you fall for formalities. From the photo below you can see the passport of the company with ASIC.

The first steps towards the incorporation of RoboForex's Australian business were obviously made in the middle of December 2013. The date is close to the date when the broker announced the official launch of its operations in Cyprus – as some of you know, RoboForex (CY) Ltd started accepting clients in the last month of 2013. 


RoboForex has stepped up its expansion over the past months – the Cypriot business now runs a new office in London. Moreover, in January 2014, RoboForex became a member of the Hong Kong-based Financial Commission – a body for impartial resolution of disputes between brokers and their clients. 


The establishment of a new business in Australia enables RoboForex not only to tap a wide market for Forex services but also to make use of one of the mildest investment climates in the world. ASIC is strict but fair – although the capital requirements are rough, the watchdog does not impose any cap on leverage and allows hedging and scalping. In addition, the FIFO (first in, first out) rule which is in force in the United States, is not in place in Australia. 


This said, it should not come as a surprise that many Forex brokers have set their foot in the Land Down Under – amid those operating in the country for ages we can mention FXCM (through  FXCM Australia). More recently, Cypriot Forex broker XM has set up its own business in Australia. Apparently, the Land Down Under has more to offer than endless highways through the deserts, kangaroos, and great surf beaches.
