LeapRate Exclusive… We continue to follow the saga of Alpari UK, which remains in administration by KPMG with funds of former Alpari UK clients (although apparently safe and accounted for) still not yet returned to their rightful owners more than one month after Alpari UK entered insolvency.
Last week, we reported that Alpari UK’s intellectual property had been sold by KPMG (back) to Alpari Group owner Andrey Dashin. And, following that sale, that Alpari UK’s website now redirects to Alpari RU.
Alpari RU is not wasting any time making use of its newly acquired IP and urls.
Alpari RU is now offering on its homepage a 30% deposit bonus credit exclusively for Alpari UK clients:
There certainly is nothing wrong with Alpari RU (or any other broker, for that matter) offering ex Alpari UK clients a deposit bonus. Deposit bonuses are fairly powerful client acquisition and retention tools used by forex brokers around the world. However given the comments we’ve received by numerous Alpari UK clients including several hundred signups to our Alpari UK petition to KPMG to release client funds as soon as possible, the perception that administrator KPMG is not necessarily working as fast as possible to release client funds, focusing instead on deals such as these, is very much out there.
