Established in 2011, the FXTM Group, or sometimes referred to as ‘Time’, is a popular / provider.

Headquartered in London, FXTM, according to their website, is trusted by more than 2 million individuals worldwide.

FXTM, since its inception, has received more than 25 awards, including Best Education Provider 2020 at the Broker Awards and Best Experience 2020 at the world awards.

We appreciated FXTM’s easy-to-navigate website, available in English and Chinese. The drop-down menus provide swift access to each segment of the website, with a help tab located at the top of the website in the event you struggle to find what you’re searching for.
