Marketing Promotions and Bonuses
General Bonus Policy – in the interest of fair trading, traders must buy or sell at least one (1) lot in real-money mode for each unit of $1 bonus granted by the Company before submitting any withdrawal requests. Each lot accounts for 100,000 currency units You choose to buy or sell.
If You receive a bonus $10 your trading requirement is 10 lots which equal 1,000,000 currency units. Keep in mind that the number of currency units You are buying or selling per trade is determined by the amount of your trade X the leverage. So for example if You´re making a trade for the amount of $25 with a leverage of 1:400, 25x400=10,000 so You are buying or selling one mini lot.

The Company and its current and future direct and indirect subsidiaries (hereinafter jointly referred to as “the Companies” and severally referred to as ‘the Company” or “we”) is an international financial services group that operates in various countries and jurisdictions. We take our reputation for integrity, both in its business behavior and its management systems, as the cornerstone of our success.
We are, therefore, committed to the highest standard of Anti-Money Laundering and Combating Terrorism Financing (hereinafter collectively referred to as AML/CTF) compliance and we require management and employees to adhere to these standards to prevent instances of money laundering.
The Policy on Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (hereinafter known as “Policy”) outlines the minimum general unified standards of the internal AML/CTF control which should be adhered to by the Company in order to mitigate the legal, regulatory, reputational, and transitively, financial and reputational risks.
Scope and Applicability
The Policy is mandatory for all the Companies and their Employees.
The Companies should use their best endeavors to ensure that Employees are not involved in money laundering and terrorist financing.
The Purpose of the PolicyThe purpose of the Policy is to provide basic guidance to the Companies and their Employees, internationally, with regards to major AML/FT requirements.
ObjectivesThe objectives of this Policy are as follows:
- To prevent criminals from using the Companies for money laundering activities
- To promote a “Know Your Customer” policy as a cornerstone principle for the Companies’ business practices
- To conduct self-audits to measure the effectiveness and compliance of these procedures
Risk Based Approach
A risk based approach takes a number of factors into consideration to assess the possibility of and mitigate the ability to launder money:
- Identify and assess the money laundering and terrorist risks that are relevant to the Company
- Design and implement controls tom manage and mitigate the assessed risks
- Monitor and improve the effective operations of these controls
Risk management is a continuous process and is carried out on a dynamic basis. Companies ensure that their risk management processes for managing money laundering are kept under regular review.
The Company will absolutely bar deposits from:
- Countries tied to sanctions, embargoes, or similar measures issued by governing bodies like the United Nations or European Union
- Countries identified by credible sources as lacking adequate money laundering laws and regulations
- Countries identified by credible sources as providing funding or support for terrorist activities
- Countries identified by credible sources as having significant levels of corruption or criminal activity
The Company will assess, based on its own criteria, whether particular customers pose a higher risk of money laundering and terrorist financing and whether, in certain cases, mitigating factors are sufficient to conclude safely that a customer may or may not pose a higher risk of money laundering or terrorist financing. Application of risk variables may increase or decrease based on the perceived risk in each case.
Certain products and services offered by the Company may pose a higher risk of money laundering or terrorist financing depending on the nature of the specific product or service offered. Such products and services may involve handling a high volume of currency or currency equivalents.
