Compliance Check

ThinkMarkets account types and leverage scheme

We have registered as an EEA resident with the ThinkMarkets offshore broker operated by TF Global Markets Int Limited in the Seychelles. This entity is regulated by the FSA Seychelles but has no permission to offer its financial products in other jurisdictions. This also applies to the regulatory regimes of the EEA countries.

When onboarding from an EEA country, ThinkMarkets will inform you that the responsible broker would be the CySEC-regulated TF Global Markets (Europe) Ltd, but you can also register for the offshore broker in the Seychelles.

As a European retail customer, we were thus also able to access leverage of up to 1:500. In the ESMA jurisdictions, however, a maximum of 1:30 is permitted.

The onboarding process is completely compliant. It is not possible to open an account or make pre-KYC deposits without KYC verification. The documents have been carefully checked. One of our documents proving the address, which was intentionally incorrect, was rejected.

On Trustpilot, ThinkMarkets has a 4.4-star rating with 217 reviews and a corresponding “Excellent” Trustlevel.

We have included ThinkMarkets in our “Green Compliance” list.
