CFD & forex brokers are in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are not regulated by the government, but may still be registered with the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Financial Services Authority. In any case, they should always be registered as legal businesses in the country. To compensate for the lack of formal oversight, unregulated CFD brokers may also sometimes be members of various industry self-regulatory organizations or independent financial dispute resolution organizations
Because of this hands-off approach by the government, CFD brokers in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are free to offer very high trading leverage to their traders. Leverage with these brokers can often be as high as 1:1,000, which means that there are great opportunities for ordinary traders to make significant profits (and losses) even with just a small trading account.
