Many high leverage forex brokers are located in Belize, where they experience little interference from the government on their day-to-day business. This is also a major reason why many brokers choose to locate here, and use Belize as a base to serve traders all over the world.
All Belize-registered forex brokers are regulated by the Financial Services Commission of Belize. This regulator is known to take a hands-off approach to the brokerage business, and allows forex brokers to offer high leverage essentially without limitations. Some high leverage forex brokers operating out of Belize offer leverage of up to 1:3,000, which is among the highest that can be found anywhere in the world.
