Thus, an objective rating table was formed, reflecting both the dynamics of the brokers' movement in the rating and in the market as a whole.

What Principles are Applied for the IAFT Forex Rating?

The main distinguishing feature of the IAFT Forex Rating is the complete absence of any influence from brokers. The rating table is always formed based on the real results of brokers obtained in the process of multilevel verification, which makes the IAFT rating as objective and relevant as possible.

Basic parameters used by IAFT specialists to check brokers:

  • Economic and financial. Here, we consider the dynamics of the trading growth, the average speed of money withdrawal, processing of customer trade orders, and much more.
  • Customer and reputational. In this category, customer reviews about the company are considered. In addition, we carry out an internal inspection with our agent introduced under the guise of a customer.
  • Service and support.Here we consider the comfort level of the broker's trading conditions, the actual feedback speed, the quality of resolving claims, etc.
