About us

We are on a Mission

Your Broker & Partner of Choice

Edge Brokers has been designed and operates as an absolute electronic trading environment for sophisticated Retail Investors and Institutional Partners, delivering outstanding Trading Functionality, Market reach, depths of Liquidity, speed of Execution and robust IT Scalability at ultra-competitive Trading Costs.

After 18 months of intensive proprietary Research and Development conducted with carefully selected Financial Institutions, Edge Brokers soft-launched on December 24th 2011 as a fully regulated CFDs and Forex online platform and is already addressing a footprint spanning 60+ countries over 5 continents.

Our game changing trader-centric solution suites are tailored for Sophisticated Traders, Expert Advisors (EAs), Black Boxes, Quants, HFT Strategies, Money/Fund Managers, and are available via the “Meta Trader 4” (MT4 Desktop and MT4 Mobile platforms), “Multi-MAM” (Multi Accounts Terminal), and “FIX API”.

Without any exception or differentiation, our clients benefit from a unique “one-for-all” Institutional Pricing and Core Spreads structure (i.e. no price manipulation), all applied to a comprehensive Multi-Asset Class package providing a Straight Through Processed Direct Market Access (i.e. no execution manipulation) to 15+ Tier 1 Liquidity Providers and 80+ Exchanges. Such specifications have been proven to increase Nominal Trading Volumes and Traders’ Profitability overtime, while significantly reducing Trading Costs, which is specifically what we aim for.

Our Revenue Model is strictly Commission-based, and we are exclusively licensed as a Matched Principal Broker (i.e. 100% Agency Model) which may not hold any proprietary positions, has no exposure, and is therefore only acting as an intermediary between its Clients, Liquidity Providers and major Exchanges. We have no rights to “Make the Market”, hence have no conflict with our clients and are strictly in business to protect their interests.

Edge Brokers Ltd. is authorised and regulated to conduct Portfolio Management and Agency Only execution activities by the ACPR in France (License number: 150/11), registered with the BaFin in Germany (Registration number: 825834), registered with the FCA in the UK (Registration number: 580193), the French Autorite de Controle Prudentiel Banque de France - ACP (Registration number 74013), MiFID compliant in Europe under the Investment Services and Regulated Market Law of 2007 (Law No. 144(I)/2007), and a Member of the Investor Compensation Fund (ICF).

Just Fair and Direct, we are Edge Brokers.

Our Mission

  • Innovate by investing in Technology rather than in Marketing.
    We operate as an absolute electronic trading environment; tailored for sophisticated Retail Investors and Institutional Partners; embracing Margin Trading, Asset Management, HFT & Quants, FX Delivery, Prime and IT solutions; and delivering outstanding Trading Functionality, Market reach, depths of Liquidity, speed of Execution and robust IT Scalability at ultra-competitive Trading Costs.
  • Demystify the Retail Trading Industry.
    Knowledge does empower and we believe any Sophisticated Retail Investor shall be able to make fully informed and responsible decisions at all times. Trading decisions (how pertinent is the trading order I plan to execute and/or the product I plan to invest in?), as well as brokerage decisions (how accurately and by whom will my trading order be executed and/or the product I invested in be managed?).

Our Vision

  • Edge Brokers will be unique in the Retail Brokerage industry.
  • We believe any Sophisticated Retail Trader shall be as valuable as any Institutional Trader hence deserve the same benefits, full stop.
  • We will systematically leverage from the latest Business and Technology Transformations in order to innovate, change the game, lead by example, and establish a new Industry wide Trader-Centric Standard.
  • We will become the leading worldwide CFDs and Forex Broker by client deposits in 3 years’ time.

Our Business model

  • Established in France with operations in Bulgaria and a strong footprint across German speaking territories, we will continue expanding our framework across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia within the next 12 months.
  • Our aim is to drive significant volumes of customers by charging ultra-competitive Trading Costs (i.e. core inter-banking market spreads + a low Commission charge) while constantly investing in Research & Development and improving end-user experience.
  • We tend to attract a majority of sophisticated investors (i.e. 50% of Live Account sizes fit between USD 20K to 500K) trading multiple Asset Classes (i.e. 50% of our revenues are CFDs based, 50% are Forex based, with the following breakdowns: FX: 50% EUR/USD, 50% Majors, CFDs: 75% Indices, 15% Equities, 10% Commodities & Bonds), at a low acquisition cost (i.e. we do not invest on Cash/Credit Bonus Promotions and multi-million Dollars Marketing Campaigns).
    The comprehensiveness, the competitiveness and the integrity of our offering is Edge’s extra mile.
  • Priced ultra-competitively, our core offering on Margin Trading does generate low revenue margins which we compensate by offering extras to drive our final revenues up. Indeed, we strongly believe the future of our Industry lays in developing Added Value services to Brokerage, which is why Edge Brokers geared up to deploy throughout Q1 and Q2 2013 an array of additional B2C/B2B Business Divisions including Asset Management, Quants, FX Delivery, and Prime Solutions, all connected into Edge’s single proprietary IT and Regulatory environment, thus generating economies of scale.
  • Our Management Team has great experience in increasing productivity and robustness of solutions, reducing costs and risks, and transferring new ways of working by applying Innovative best-practices. Hence we do configure every single aspect of our business model so as to drive out cost, without any compromises on Quality of Service and Technology.
    Examples include establishing our Headquarters in France (i.e. the second largest Retail Brokerage hub in Europe, after the UK) rather than supporting higher operating costs in London or Frankfurt. We also run operations across Eastern Europe, training and employing locally highly qualified and dedicated professionals at local costs.
  • We develop sophisticated proprietary HFT & Quants strategies generating high trading volumes from small but numerous trades. Such Commission-based models are ideal to any Execution Only brokerage. In turn, we support our HFT & Quants applications by deploying a highly scalable and cutting-edge Binary Protocol based IT infrastructure (i.e. non-MT4 and non-FIX API) capable of processing up to 50,000 trades per second, a definite uniqueness in our Industry, and yet another expression of our absolute dedication to deliver the extra mile.
