When was KIWI founded?

KIWI was founded in Manchester, UK in 2012. KIWI is a team of highly qualified experts in the Forex and technology industries, with decades of knowledge and experience in the business.

Why was KIWI created?

KIWI was created in response to growing frustration among traders to online-based Forex trading organisations with poor customer support, delayed trades and excessive spreads.

The reality of the retail investor is quite different from the stubborn caricature as insignificant, unsophisticated and inattentive, consistently mistiming the market cycle to buy high and sell low. According to research data, retail traders are the fastest growing group of investors.

The Electronic Communications Network (ECN)

KIWI offers direct access to multiple assets that can be quickly bought or sold in the market. Our state of the art technology offers a very economical trading platform, with trades at low commissions. This is done through the use of the Electronic Communications Network (ECN) that allows investors a way to trade outside of traditional trading hours, providing a mechanism for those who either can’t be actively involved during normal market times or who prefer the flexibility offered by wider availability. It also avoids higher costs of using a traditional broker, with overall lower commissions and fees. For those concerned about privacy, the ECN can provide a level of anonymity to those who desire it.

Nominee accounts

In order to operate more efficiently, KIWI use nominee accounts. This means that your investments are registered in the name of KIWI, although you remain the beneficial owner. This saves you the costs of a full-service brokerage.
