Located off the coast of Australia in the Pacific Ocean, Vanuatu is home to many high leverage forex brokers. The island nation is known as a safe-haven for financial services companies from around the world, and in particular for companies from Australia and New Zealand.
Registering a high leverage forex broker in Vanuatu is a relatively easy process, although the country does regulate brokers through the Vanuatu Financial Services Commission. However, the Vanuatu regulator typically does not get into the details of how forex brokers conduct their business, and brokers are therefore largely free to offer the amount of leverage they want. Because of this, several high leverage forex brokers in Vanuatu offer up to 1:1,000 leverage for their non-professional clients.
