How We Make Money

At, our mission is to provide in-depth, unbiased reviews of international forex brokers, and to create world-class content about the global forex industry.

Our editorial decisions are independent and impartial, and we take an objective, data-driven approach to broker evaluations.

We will never accept compensation to boost a broker’s ratings or rankings or to alter a broker’s Trust Score (we don’t do “pay-to-play” here). Our evaluations are based on thousands of hours of in-depth research and meticulous data collection and analysis.

Any revisions to our content are driven by our desire to produce and present the most accurate information for our readers, and are solely based on our research and testing methodologies. Click here to learn more about how we test.

Our opinions simply can’t be bought – by anyone. So, how do we make money?

We make money in two ways; we feature clearly labeled advertising on some of our pages, and we partner with financial service providers for affiliate relationships.

Our partners may compensate us for referrals completed from affiliate links – but they can’t pay us to alter a review, modify an opinion, or inflate a Trust Score.

Our editorial team operates independently of our advertising teams, and does not receive access to any marketing materials that could influence editorial decisions.

Our Editorial Principles

  • If we love a service or company, we’ll tell you – no matter what.
  • If we think a company or service has room to improve (or should be avoided altogether), we’ll let you know – no matter what.
  • If we’ve determined that using a broker or service provider puts your money at risk, we’ll say so – no matter what.

Here are a few things that we’ll never do to make money:

  • We never change our opinion of a product or service or modify our evaluation process to gain or preserve an affiliate partnership.
  • We never highlight (or deliberately conceal) a specific product or service to gain or maintain an affiliate relationship.
  • We never alter our proprietary data-driven algorithms (like Trust Score) to favor an affiliate partner.
  • We never share marketing revenue information or advertising campaign data with our researchers or our editorial team.

  • Your trust in us, alongside the trust of the industry as a whole, is of the utmost importance to our mission. Our company was founded on the premise of 100% unbiased reviews and ratings, please read more about our story and how we test.

    We partner with different financial service providers so we can deliver in-depth research, accurate data, and relevant offers without requiring a paywall to access. As a transparency-first organization, we want you to be aware of these partners.

    If you use our links to visit the website of one of the following financial service providers, or open an account with any of the following providers, we may receive compensation.
