We start our Exness review by highlighting some key features of this popular CFD broker.

First, the Exness Group does not offer online trading services for retail clients with residence in the UK, the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia. Exness ceased all of its European retail operations in October 2019, although the European entities are still active – Exness (Cy) Ltd, regulated by the Cyprus CySEC and Exness (UK) Ltd, regulated by the UK’s FCA – and both are only offering B2B trading services for professional clients and institutions.

Nevertheless, the Exness Group is a long-established CFD broker – founded in 2008 – and also a reputable choice for retail investors looking for the extra muscle to operate on the financial markets. Depending on the account equity, Exness provides variable leverage with the maximum ratio of Unlimited:1! And this could be the main reason why Exness is out of the European markets, and the other markets where leverage limits are restricted for retail traders.

So, to recap, not only Exness offers some of the highest leverage ratios in this industry to retail traders, but the broker also offers competitive trading costs, with low spreads and average trading commissions, trading accounts in 61 base currencies – by far the largest choice also in the industry – and low minimum deposits – depending on the payment method, as low as 1 USD.

On the downside, many investors can’t open a trading account with the broker - where Exness ceased its retail operations – and this fact has also created a suspicious atmosphere with the retail trading community. Adding to that, the choice of current regulators, that offer little to no protection to retail traders, might also impact negatively the popularity of this CFDs broker.

Opening a trading account with Exness is possible with any of its entities, geared towards retail traders. Retail traders can open a live account mainly with the Nymstar Limited entity, part of the Exness Group.

Nymstar Limited is a Securities Dealer firm registered in Seychelles, with registration number 8423606-1, and authorised by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) with licence number SD025. The registered office of Nymstar Limited is at F20, 1st floor, Eden Plaza, Eden Island, Seychelles.

Venico Capital Limited, also part of the Exness Group, is a financial firm authorised by the British Virgin Islands Financial Services Commission (FSC), with registration number 2032226 and with an investment business licence number SIBA/L/20/1133. The BVI FSC is the regulatory authority responsible for all financial services businesses operating in and from within the BVI.

Tortelo Limited, also operating as Exness, is a financial services firm with registration number 176967 and authorised by the Mauritius Financial Services Commission (FSC). Tortelo Limited has an Investment Dealer (Full-Service Dealer, Excluding Underwriting) licence number GB20025294. The Mauritius FSC is the integrated regulator for the non-bank financial services sector and global business in Mauritius.

Vlerizo (Pty) Ltd, offering a higher degree of protection for retail investors, is licensed and regulated in South Africa by the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA). This entity has a Financial Service Provider (FSP) licence number 51024. South Africa's FSCA is responsible for market conduct regulation and supervision of financial institutions registered in South Africa.

Client Money Protection

Nymstar Limited, the Seychelles registered entity, does not specify how it manages client funds. We are to believe that due to the lack of information regarding the matter and because of the lack of strong regulations from this tier-4 regulator, client funds might not be held in segregated accounts.

All the other Exness Group entities comply with the regulations regarding client money handling rules and client's funds are kept completely segregated from the company capital. Exness does not use the client's funds for any other operational company expenses or purposes.

Deposit Compensation

None of the regulated Exness Group entities offers any deposit compensation scheme. This means that there isn't any active mechanism to secure retail deposits or to mediate customers claims arising from the broker's failure to meet its financial obligations.

Negative Balance Protection

For retail accounts opened via any of the Exness Group entities, there is a default Negative Balance Protection in place, to protect clients from any losses bigger than their original deposits. Exness performs a NULL operation on all accounts that incur a negative balance due to extreme volatility and corrects the balance to zero.

If a retail trader gets a negative balance on a live account, the broker suggests traders should wait some time for it to be automatically corrected, before making a new deposit.

Exness Cashback rebates

Cash back rebates are paid per round turn lot unless otherwise specified. 1 Lot = 100,000 base currency units traded.

What are Exness rebates?

Exness rebates are a portion of the transaction cost that is paid back to the client on each trade, resulting in a lower spread and improved win ratio. For example, if your rebate is 1 pip and the spread is 3 pips, then your net spread is only 2 pips.

Many traders initially believe there must be higher costs elsewhere to compensate, however they soon find there is no catch and Forex rebates truly reduce the costs of the transaction and improve their bottom line.

How do Exness rebates work?

When you link a new or existing forex trading account to us the broker pays us part of their spread or commission profit for every trade you make as compensation for referring a customer to them. We then share the majority of our revenue with you, paying you a cash rebate for each trade you make as thank you for signing up with us.

Unlike some of our competitors your spreads will never increase as a result of using our service! The only difference is: as our client you earn extra cash per trade, making trading through us more profitable than opening direct with the broker. Founded in 2007, we are the original and leading provider of forex rebates. We pay rebates to over 100,000 accounts and traders love our helpful 24 hour live chat, telephone and email support.

Are Exness rebates a scam; do my spreads increase?

Exness rebates paid by legitimate rebate providers are not a scam, however scams do exist. The most common scam is a rebate provider that marks up the spread or commission in order to pay a higher rebate than competitors. Many brokers do allow a referring party, or rebate provider, to markup costs to traders they refer. Obviously this defeats the purpose of the service provided by the rebate provider and thus jeopardizes the viability of the rebate provider’s reputation and business, so a reliable provider wouldn’t consider this. Besides this, certain rebate providers may not pay on time, or not at all. This is why it’s important to choose a reliable provider.

When working with a trustworthy rebate provider, there is no ‘catch’. It is more beneficial to a trader’s financial position to work with a rebate provider than solely with the forex broker.

Are there any other benefits to signing up for Exness rebates?

It depends on the rebate provider. Due to our unique relationship with many brokers, we have often mediated between brokers and clients in order to help successfully resolve client issues, including clients who are having withdrawal issues. Brokers are often very fast to respond to us, since we typically have many clients with them. Our knowledgeable support team is available 24 hours per day in 8 native languages & 23 total languages for any questions. We also offer trading tools, calculators, reviews and a robust forex education section.

How are forex rebates paid?

Because we deal with so many traders in so many different countries and serve 23 languages we have to cover a wide array of options. Here’s what we offer:

Forex rebate options vary per broker:

Monthly cash back Payments are credited and sent automatically by the 12 of the month following the month rebates are earned in.
Spread or commission reduction The trader actually receives reduced commissions and/or spreads. This is an exciting option offered by some of our top brokers.
Paid direct to brokerage account Cashback is credited directly to the trader’s brokerage account, typically between 1-7 days after the trade is closed. This is another exciting options offered by some of our top brokers.

In the case of the ‘Monthly cash back’ rebate option, monthly payments can be paid via bank wire, Paypal, Skrill, Sticpay, China Unionpay, and Neteller. Some payment methods such as bank wire carries fees and often traders set a custom minimum payment amount in order to accumulate rebates and withdraw their rebates less often than monthly.

Exness simplifies its trading accounts offering with only two types of accounts, Standard and Professional, both supplied with the MT4 and MT5 trading platforms. The only substantial difference is the extra asset class. Clients opening accounts with the MT5 platform will also have access to, and be able to trade, stocks CFDs.

The Exness’s Standard, Standard Cent and Pro accounts are best suited for investors that wish to trade only with the bid and ask prices, without added commissions.

Exness’s Raw Spread and Zero accounts are recommended for investors looking for more competitive pricing, especially for the forex pairs, with tighter spreads, but paying a trading commission – on average 7 USD per round lot. Exness also offers swap-free accounts for traders of Islamic belief.

Regarding leverage, Exness maximum ratio is Unlimited:1 for retail clients opening a live account with any of the regulated entities but subject to the account equity:

Account Equity Maximum leverage ratio
0 – 999 USD Unlimited:1
0 – 4,999 USD 2000:1
5,000 – 29,999 USD 1000:1

Exness Pricing

Account/Pricing Standard Standard Cent Raw Spread Zero
EUR/USD Spread from 0.3 pip from 0.3 pip from 0.0 pip from 0.0 pip
EUR/USD Commission (1 lot) $0 $0 up to $7 from $7
EUR/USD Swap rate
(15-09-2021)
  • Long: -0.354
  • Short: +0.097

Spreads and trading commissions

Exness’s pricing and trading costs are competitive when compared with other players in this industry. The starting spread for the most popular cross, the EUR/USD pair, on the Standard account is 0.3 pip (with an average of 1.0 pip), commission-free.

The highlight goes to the Exness’s Raw Spread and Zero accounts, with more competitive pricing and trading conditions. Taking the EUR/USD cross again as our example, Exness offers an average low spread of 0.0 pip, with a trading commission for 1 standard lot - 100,000 currency units - of 7 USD (3.5 USD per side/per lot). We consider the Raw Spread and Zero accounts trading commission to be average when compared with other top brokers.

The main difference between the Raw Spread account and the Zero account is the total cost of trading. Although on our EUR/USD example they present the same trading costs, the Raw Spread account has fixed commissions of 3.5 USD per side/lot. For example, investors trading the USD/CAD with the Raw Spread account will pay 0.4 pip spread and 7 USD commission (3.5 USD per side/lot). Investors trading the USD/CAD with a Zero account will pay 0.1 pip spread and 10 USD commission (5 USD per side/lot).

So, you might be wondering which Exness account is cheaper to trade with? With our simple formula to convert the USD trading commissions into pips, we can find out, exactly, the total cost of trading the USD/CAD with both accounts. For that, we simply divide the trading commission value by the pip value for 1 lot ($10).

commission / pip value = commission in pips

And here are our findings:

With the Raw Spread account, the USD/CAD average spread is 0.4 pip and the trading commission converted in pips is 0.7 pips, with a total of 1.1 pips.

With the Zero account, the average spread is 0.1 pip and the trading commission converted in pips is 1.0 pips, also with a total of 1.1 pips.

Yes, that’s right, there’s no difference if investors want to trade the Majors like the EUR/USD, USD/CAD, USD/CHF or the USD/JPY. They are offered with the same pricing. But, for investors looking to trade other Majors, like the AUD/USD, GBP/USD and NZD/USD, then we recommend the Raw Spread account as the pricing is slightly lower by 0.1 pip.

Rollover rates

Exness swap rates, as of 15-09-2021, and for the EUR/USD, stand at -3.54 for holding overnight a long position of 1 lot and at +0.97 for holding overnight a short position of 1 lot. We consider Exness’s rollover rates to be better when compared with the swap rates offered by other top brokers.

Exness Deposits / Withdrawals

Deposit fees: Trading accounts can be opened in 61 different currencies and maintained via 8 funding methods. Including the traditional methods - debit/credit cards and bank wires - Exness also accepts deposits with the most popular e-payment solutions (subject to jurisdiction), such as Neteller, Skrill and PerfectMoney. Exness also accepts Bitcoin funding (subject to jurisdiction).

Exness does not charge any deposit fees, and deposited funds are available almost instantly.

Minimum deposit: Opening a live trading account with Exness is fairly easy and it can all be done via the broker’s website in 3 steps; fill in the simple registration form, confirm your identity and do the first deposit. The minimum deposit requirement with Exness for the Standard account is 1 USD. Please note that this amount varies depending on the funding method. If traders want to open a Professional type account (Raw Spread, Pro and Zero), then the minimum initial deposit is 200 USD (or the equivalent in other account currencies).

Withdrawal fees: Exness also waives the withdrawals fees (withdrawal processing times vary from instant to 5 business days). Exness does not charge clients any fees for withdrawals. However, for deposits and withdrawals, your credit card provider, bank or payment system may apply a transaction fee, or commission, that is beyond the broker's control. For more information, please visit the Exness deposit and withdrawals dedicated page.

Inactivity fee: Currently, Exness does not charge an inactivity fee. Still, if traders register a Personal Account with the broker and leave it unused for a long period, the account may be archived. On the MT4 platform, an account is archived after 90 days of inactivity and if the balance is < 5 USD. MT5 accounts will be archived after 15 days of inactivity and if the balance is < 1 USD.

Exness Popularity

The Exness Group was founded in 2008 by a group of like-minded professionals with a background in the finance and information technology areas. Still, in more than 10 years of business, due to the broker’s corporate decisions, mainly, Exness seems to fail in capturing the attention of traders in the European and Oceania continents.

Trading with Exness is currently limited to the MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5, as no other trading platforms are offered. Also, impacting negatively this retail CFDs broker, the choice of regulators. Except for South Africa’s FSCA, they are all tier-4 financial authorities that might lack proper regulations and safety mechanisms to protect retail clients.

Still, Exness enjoys a popular position with retail traders in Asia, mainly because of the extended offering of base currencies and the above-average leverage ratios. Exness accepts account deposits in 61 different currencies and allows retail traders to open a trading account with a maximum leverage of Unlimited:1 (subject to the account equity).

Popular trading account: The Exness Raw Spread account is the popular choice with traders looking to save on trading costs, with lower spreads and a competitive commission of $7.00 per lot.

Trading education

Exness also gets some extra popularity points for their decent range of trading education materials, available through the “Tools & Services” tab on the broker’s website. Exness clients can find a couple of trading tools, like the trader’s calculator to help them calculate all the basics of their trading positions, including Margin, Pip Value, Swap Long and Swap Short. Traders can also access the WebTV, provided in partnership with Trading Central, an industry-leading financial investment research provider, to get a video stream of financial news from the New York Stock Exchange.

The Exness MT4 platform is offered for all account types, the Standard account and the Professional accounts range – Raw Spread, Zero and Pro.

The Exness MT4 Standard and Standard Cent accounts are the entry-level accounts. The Standard account is the most popular, and a great account choice for all types of traders. The Standard Cent allows trading with micro-lots and is the account perfect for newbies, looking to access the markets with smaller initial capital, thus with less risk.

The minimum deposit for both Standard type accounts depends on the funding method but starts at just 1 USD. With a maximum leverage ratio of Unlimited:1, investors can trade forex currency pairs, metals, cryptocurrencies, energies and indices, with a starting spread of 0.3 pip, and no trading commissions.

After installing the Exness MT4 trading platform on your PC, you can log in to an existing account, or create a new demo account.

Is Exness an ECN broker?

Exness uses a hybrid business model, acting both as an STP broker and as a market maker, depending on the investors trading account type. As explained on the broker’s Client Agreement - Part D: Trading Terms, point 1.2, Exness acts as the counterparty (market maker) but also as an STP broker “depending on the type of Client Account held by each Client, the Company will either be executing Orders as a counterparty in the particular transaction in which case the Company will be the execution venue or it will be transmitting the Orders for execution to a third party (known as Straight Through Processing, STP)”.

When trading with Exness, investors should note that the client terminal provides the facility to open Interbank Accounts (ECN), as well as market maker accounts, in this case, the Standard account and the Standard Cent account.

Clients with the Standard and Standard Cent accounts will be dealing directly with Exness as the counterparty to every transaction, and therefore, investors will have exposure to Exness concearning each transaction, common in all OTC financial market products.

Does Exness accept retail clients from Australia?

No, Exness does not accept retail clients with residence in Australia and New Zealand. Exness does not have an entity regulated and supervised by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), thus, the broker cannot offer, or promote, its trading services to retail clients in both countries.

Does Exness accept retail clients from Malaysia?

No, in November 2017 Exness stopped accepting applications from retail clients with residence in Malaysia. Exness is still operating in Malaysia, but only for existing customers. The restriction of new Malaysian retail clients was based on a commercial decision of the Exness Group, given changing regulatory and environmental conditions, mainly, the product intervention by some top financial regulators.

What is the Exness account verification?

New retail traders opening an Exness live trading account will have to complete an Economic Profile and also submit the Proof of Identity and Proof of Residence documents.

Exness needs to verify these documents to ensure that all operations on the trading account are performed by the trader - the genuine account holder - to ensure compliance within both financial regulations, anti-money laundering policies and local laws.

Exness account verification is almost immediate, as it relies on third-party recognition software. New account holders should receive feedback on the submitted Proof of Identity and Proof of Residence documents within minutes. However, if the documents require advanced verification or a manual check, the account verification can take up to 24 hours per submission.

Retail traders opening a live Exness account and failing the profile verification, or if the account verification is not complete within 30 days, will have the deposits, transfers, and trading functions blocked until the verification process is completed.

To do the Exness account verification users will need to upload some documents requested by the broker. Exness generally accepts high-quality colour scans, images and PDFs of documents.

The Proof of Address documents should have the account holder’s name and address. The Proof of Identity documents should include the account holder’s name, ID photo and date of birth. Please note that all four corners of each document should be visible.

Exness review - final considerations.

We conclude our Exness review with the final considerations regarding this high-leverage CFD broker. Exness stands out for its insane leverage ratios (not just the Unlimited:1, but also the 2000:1 and 1000:1 ratios), and its competitive trading costs, especially in the forex market. The fast ECN trading environment, offered by Exness to investors, with direct access to top liquidity providers, allows for an overall great trading experience. With Exness traders are allowed to hedge, scalp, swing or position trade, with no restrictions, via 2 reliable trading platforms; MT4, MT5 and the broker's trading platform, the Exness Terminal, available only on the web version.

Overall, the competitive pricing of the Exness Raw Spread account, the eye-catching high-leverage ratios, together with a low initial deposit of 200 USD, position this CFD broker on the top 10 brokers for popularity with traders opening a trading account in 2023.
