Short NordFX Narrative

NordFX is a forex and CFD broker that has been in existence since 2008 or 2009 and has since been operated with different legal entities in different jurisdictions. According to older reviews and archived websites, NordFX in Europe used to be operated by CySEC-regulated NFX Capital CY Ltd with the domain NordFXeu.com. In 2022, the legal entity was renamed Inveza Capital Ltd and was also doing business as Inveza (www.inveza.com) until the CySEC license was voluntarily renounced in 2022.

In September 2022, Inveza announced that it would cease operations. The Inveza website is offline, but Inveza Capital Ltd is still active as a payment agent for NordFX.

Until the beginning of 2023, NordFX presented an address in Vanuatu and was registered with the VFSC. At least that’s what it said on the website. Today, NordFX is registered in St. Lucia and operates through several websites, primarily in Asia, and offers leverage of up to 1:1,000.

Since the beginning of 2023, NordFX has lost almost half its website visitors. Traffic fell from just under 500,000 daily visitors to around 233,000 in November 2023, according to the Similarweb analysis. In the last 28 days before Dec 22, 2023, most website visitors came from Asia, MENA, and South America. The NordFX scheme claims to have more than 2 million clients and 29,000 affiliates. Those would be impressive numbers, if they would be accurate.

Payment Processors

NordFX has an extensive portfolio of payment processors. Among the payment processors, we have discovered BrightCart, Kryptova, DusuPay, and DragonPay. Deposits via crypto are possible via BinancePay or Cryptix. There are also several e-wallet services, such as PerfectMoney, Skrill, and Neteller.

The credit/debit card payments were processed through BrightCart. The merchant payment address given is Loukis Akritas Street 14, Agia Zoni, Limassol, Cyprus. So once again, we ended up in Cyprus with Inveza Capital Ltd sitting at this address.

The deposits via BinancePay are processed via the domain https://dfsdsca3.kazkeqeda.com/payment via https://pay.tx-point.com.

Compliance Check

The NordFX website says no clients from North America and the EU are accepted. However, we could register as EU residents in our review on 24 Oct 2023.

Upon our registration, we were prompted to make a first deposit. At this point, we had not even confirmed our email. let alone a KYC check. A maximum of $5,000 was possible via credit/debit cards, but (theoretically) an unlimited amount would have been possible via crypto and e-wallets. A message at the bottom of the web page makes you aware that verification is needed for withdrawals.

NordFX offers retail clients a maximum leverage of 1:1000, although most regulatory regimes only allow a maximum of 1:30 for retail clients.

Due to the lack of regulatory permission as well as regulatory violations in various areas, we have placed NordFX on our Red Compliance list.

NordFX does not look like a scam, but it is certainly an unauthorized offshore broker. Any investor compensation schemes do not protect clients of offshore brokers and are not entitled to financial ombudsman support. You should, therefore, avoid offshore brokers in general.
