Securities Dealers License from the VFSC in Vanuatu

IFLS' most requested license: The Vanuatu Forex Securities Dealers License. Become a regulated securities dealer and enable your clients access to your very own products, such as: Forex Services, Managed Accounts. Trade FX, Bonds, CFDs, Certificates etc. - No other license offers such a value for limited costs

Despite of the growing demand for financial services, it has become difficult for financial service providers to obtain a license for their activities or stand the pressure of ever-increasing rules and requirements in order to retain that license.


Controlling authorities impose strict rules and increase entry barriers (such as enormous capital requirement), trying to oust medium-sized companies from this business area.


One of the solutions we offer with this regard is Vanuatu Securities Dealers License. It is a relatively new product, but it already gained an approval and popularity of many firms, offering financial services to the customers worldwide.

Obtaining of a license of the Securities Dealer becomes possible due to the Dealers in Securities (Licensing) Act [Cap 70 of the laws of Vanuatu] (previously called Prevention of Fraud (Investment) Act), which allows individuals and companies to apply for such license.

The advantages:

  1. This company can offer bank-like services, additionally
    a permission to provide Forex (FX) and commodity 

  2. No limitations of clients you can accept

  3. Very low fee to get the permissions granted 

  4. There are no restrictions on public solicitations and web sites being open to the general public

  5. We offer you a full package including an international bank account for your new Vanuatu Financial Company


You do not need to travel to Vanuatu to undersign application forms; all we be done by email and mailing if you decide to incorporate via IFLS Corporate Services Ltd and its Corporate Services Provider Partners in Vanuatu.

Basically, the Act has two functions. First is to regulate the issuance of the license of securities dealer and the second is to impose penalties for persons/corporations dealing with securities without a permission or fraudulently inducing people to invest money in securities.

The definition of "dealing in securities" includes a requirement of an intention to make a profit. As a result, foreign exchange transactions that are intended to make a profit for the client (as opposed to simple money exchange) fall within the definition of "dealing in securities" and licenses are required to carry on that business.
