Regulatory Troubles

ICC Intercertus Capital has a fierce history with a wide variety of regulators. The CI originally operated the broker EverFX. The ICC Group has already been sanctioned for this by the UK FCA and the German BaFin. In May 2021, the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) banned the ICC Group and EverFX from offering regulated financial services in the UK. The German BaFin did so in 2020.

In August 2022, CySEC announced that a settlement had been reached with the company for possible regulatory violations for the period January 2020 until May 2021. The company has agreed to pay and has already paid the amount of €100.000.

Given the damaged reputation with regulators, selling and renaming the entity was probably the most sensible solution.
