Very happy to share this new milestone in Swissquote’s young history. We received our license from CySec (Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission) and are ready to start operations in the New Year. Swissquote Capital Markets will be the name of this new entity of the Group.

Swissquote Group is already authorized to operate in Switzerland, the UK, Dubai, Hong Kong, Malta, Singapore and Luxemburg. Now to its list of licenses, the company has added Cyprus Investment Firm (CIF) license which will allow the broker to offer trading services across the European Economic Area (EEA).

Meanwhile, launched its own crypto exchange SQX recently.
