The ForexBrokers.com annual forex broker review (four years running) is the most cited in the industry. With over 50,000 words of research across the site, we spend hundreds of hours testing forex brokers each year. How we test.
Trading forex (currencies) in Kenya is popular among residents. While recommended, forex brokers are not required to become authorised by the Capital Markets Authority (CMA) to accept residents of Kenya as customers, unless based in Kenya.
The Capital Markets Authority is the financial regulatory body in Kenya. Website: https://www.cma.or.ke/. We also recommend that residents of Kenya follow the CMA on Twitter: https://twitter.com/cmakenya.
The CMA was established in 1989 and is responsible for supervising, licensing, and monitoring the activities of market intermediaries. For a historical breakdown, here's a link to the Capital Markets Authority webpage on Wikipedia.

For our 2020 Forex Broker Review we assessed, rated, and ranked 30 international forex brokers. Each broker was graded on 105 different variables and, in total, over 50,000 words of research were produced.
While encouraged, broker participation was optional. Each broker had the opportunity to complete an in-depth data profile and provide executive time (live in person or over the web) for an annual update meeting.
All data submitted by brokers is hand-checked for accuracy. Ultimately, our rigorous data validation process yields an error rate of less than 1% each year, providing site visitors quality data they can trust. Learn more about how we test.
