Regulated Binary Options Brokers
Here is presented a list of binary options brokers that are regulated by some authorities. Although regulation is not some bullet-proof guarantee that you will not run into a trouble by dealing with a broker, it is a reasonable safeguard that separates potentially good brokers from potentially bad ones. The situation is such that when an unregulated binary broker goes under, you are left on your own. Regulated companies have lower likelihood of running away with your money, and you also have some backup protection in form of a government institution if that actually happens. Additionally, some regulatory institutions provide customer compensation schemes in case a broker is declared bankrupt. For this reason, we have created this list of binary brokers that are registered, licensed, or otherwise regulated. At the same time, you need to remember that not all regulation jurisdictions are the same and be cautious with unknown or offshore regulators.
If you spot some company, which is no longer regulated, please inform us about it. If your broker is acquired some license, registration, or other form government approval, please send us a note so we could update your listing info.
