Founded in 2016, ForexBrokers began with a simple mission: to provide in-depth, unbiased reviews of international forex brokers, and to create world-class content about the global forex industry.

Today, we cover dozens of the world’s biggest online forex brokers. Each year, we publish tens of thousands of words of research and we collect thousands of data points in pursuit of our mission to provide the most accurate broker reviews in the industry. Research and testing methodologies make us tick; check out how we test.

We’ve also developed specialized tools and proprietary algorithms to make it easier (and safer) to find, compare, and choose a forex broker. Our proprietary Trust Score tool helps traders and investors answer an important question: Can I trust my forex brokerage service with my money? Click here to learn more about how Trust Score works.

Serving our readers is our highest priority, and we never sacrifice our ideals or our editorial principles in order to make money. So, how do we keep the lights on and the business running? We are more than happy to talk about how we make money.
