Best Forex Brokers in Kenya 2023

Trading forex (currencies) in Kenya is popular among residents. While recommended, forex brokers are not required to become authorised by the Capital Markets Authority (CMA) to accept residents of Kenya as customers, unless based in Kenya.

The Capital Markets Authority is the financial regulatory body in Kenya. Website: https://www.cma.or.ke/. We also recommend that residents of Kenya follow the CMA on Twitter: https://twitter.com/cmakenya. The CMA was established in 1989 and is responsible for supervising, licensing, and monitoring the activities of market intermediaries. For a historical breakdown, here’s a link to the Capital Markets Authority webpage on Wikipedia.
