    Agent Legal is one of the few international consultancy firms that offers a complete range of advisory services and practical solutions related to the formation, licensing and on-going support for Forex and binary options firms as well as financial institutions in general.

    We guide our clients every step of the way starting from the selection of the right jurisdiction to supporting the licensed institution during their life cycles by offering the following services:

    • Advice and guidance on the selection of a jurisdiction for your prospective financial institution.
    • Due diligence procedures in respect of the beneficial owners and prospective directors.
    • Incorporation of a legal entity and provision of domiciliary services.
    • Setting up a corporate bank account for further placement of required statutory capital.
    • Locating corporate officers and qualified personnel to meet, where mandatory, the minimum staff requirements.
    • Assistance with completing your license application and supporting documentation such as the business plan, internal policies and procedures, including amongst others your company’s operations manual, compliance arrangements, risk management and anti-money laundering policies and procedures etc.
    • Submitting the application to the license issuing authority, liaising with the regulator and all associated parties until your license application is finalized.
