Pepperstone Profile

Pepperstone is a specialized forex and CFD broker founded in 2010, headquartered in Australia with strict supervision by ASIC and FCA regulators. Pepperstone provides fairly sophisticated trading solutions for experienced traders, but is easy to use for newcomers to the forex world.

Pepperstone helps retail and institutional investors use forex and other instruments as an asset class and part of their investment goals. Pepperstone committed to offering the best trading platform with access to low prices, reliable trading infrastructure, fast execution and exceptional client support. Pepperstone offers direct access to a number of liquidity destinations in the dealing desk forex market without the hassle that were previously not available to retail investors.

Pepperstone was created because the management team experienced increasing frustration among traders who use online-based forex trading companies, in terms of delays in trading execution, excessive spreads, and poor customer support services. To deliver a better trading experience, Pepperstone offers superior technology that uses low latency execution, low-cost spreads, and exceptional customer service.
