Belize is one of the most popular offshore jurisdictions for CFD & forex brokers in the world, and for good reason. The oversight by the International Financial Services Commission of Belize is generally loose, and brokers therefore have the flexibility to do things in the way they see fit without worrying too much about regulations.
Available leverage for CFD traders is also high in Belize, with many brokers offering up to 1:1,000 leverage on major FX pairs, and slightly less on more volatile CFDs. CFD brokers based in Belize also accept clients from around the world, usually with the exception of US residents only. As such, a Belize-based CFD broker may be a good option for European traders looking to trade with higher leverage for example.
