Despite all the goals and objectives that aims BVIFSC, you should understand that before you regular offshore regulator and obtain its license does not require special efforts. Moreover, in practice, BVIFSC, there were no instances of revocation of licenses of brokerage companies or imposing some strict disciplinary measures, so we cannot guarantee that clients ' claims will be heard and the broker will be punished. But even if that happens, he will be fined, but the client will not reimburse a penny from the received damages. In addition, the regulator BVIFSC no compensation Fund, so in case of bankruptcy of the company, the client also will not receive compensation.

Thus, the BVIFSC is the average Adjuster, which seeks to create conditions for safe investment and has a special legal status of the participant of the British United Kingdom, but do not have the appropriate authority. So if possible, it is better to choose the broker other jurisdictions or to draw attention to another brokerage company as the Bank BVIFSC cannot guarantee that customers of financial companies reimbursement of non-market risks.
