  1.      What is  ForexNation?

Forex Nation is the world’s 1st charity forex broker – We are a non profit broker registered as a CIC (Community Interest Company) giving at least 65% of our profit to the neediest through microcredits.

The Forex Nation model is built around three key principles:

  1. Community not competition;
  2. Transparent, non-predatory market practices;

Our brokerage profits are used to fund charitable works that help people and enrich communities in need. We are not asking for donations or charging extra brokerage to make this possible. Just like any other brokerage account, our clients keep their own profit. But unlike any other brokerage account, our own benefits are given to the neediest by microcredits. Every trade made through Forex Nation contributes to building a better future … one trade at a time.

Interested traders will be able to track those underserved entrepreneurs who received microcredits by visiting our website or the Charity Kiva’s website (where you can see and track all the microcredits done by us) .

Operational transparency is a cornerstone of the Forex Nation model. Our operating costs which are minimum due to the fact that our operations are online,, will be voluntarily disclosed on our website as annual audited accounts.

  1.      What is a CIC company?

CIC’s are being recognised more and more as an effective legal form for social enterprises. They are particularly attractive to those who do not want to become charities but wishing to enjoy the benefits of limited company status and wanting to be legally committed to give their own benefits to Charities.The CIC form aims to meet the needs of organisations which trade with a social purpose (“social enterprises”) or carry on other activities which benefit the community. The different available formats of companies (limited by guarantee,public or private companies limited by shares) and the ability in some cases to pay limited dividends give a flexibility to tailor the CIC form to particular needs. The familiar structure of shareholders and directors is an easily understood corporate governance system and the people you deal with such as banks, suppliers and advisers will be used to dealing with a company. The ability to pay salaries to directors may assist in obtaining the right quality managers. The asset lock provision is increasingly giving confidence to those wishing to fund CICs and those dealing with CICs that the assets and profits will primarily be devoted to the benefit of the community rather than rewarding the owners or investors. The CIC annual report ensures transparency and recognition to the affected people and beneficiaries.

 

  1.      What is an Asset Lock?

The Asset Lock is a fundamental feature of Community Interest Companies (CICs).  “Asset Lock” is a general term used to cover all the provisions designed to ensure that the assets of the CIC (including any profits or other surpluses generated by its activities) are used for the benefit of the community.

  1.     Differences between charities and CICs.

Charities must be established exclusively for charitable purposes: community interest companies (CICs) can be established for any lawful purpose, as long as their activities are carried on for the benefit of the community. Charities have certain tax advantages that CICs do not have. In return for those advantages, charities are subject to more onerous regulation than CICs. The CIC legal form was specifically designed to provide a purpose-built legal framework and a “brand” identity for social enterprises that want to adopt the limited company form.

CICs are free to operate more commercially than charities (e.g. CICs limited by shares can pay dividends to individual shareholders, subject to a cap), but stakeholders in CICs will still have the assurance of community benefit provided by the asset lock and transparency about their activities through the community interest report. A charity may, however, own a CIC and the CIC is permitted to pass assets to the charity. This for example enables a CIC to run a charity shop and pass all the profits to the charity that owns it.

  1.      Why would an organization want to be a CIC instead of a charity?

There is no doubt that charitable status is exactly right for those who wish to further charitable objectives and it is likely that many organisations operating for the public benefit (and who are eligible for charity status) will choose to be charities, not least for the fiscal advantages.

The sort of people who will want to set up a CIC will typically be entrepreneurs who want to do good in a form other than charity.

  1.      What is our purpose of becoming CIC?

ForexNation aims to explore a new way to do business, that is not anymore relegated to the merely profit but also to benefit the community and the world. Profit must come not from disadvantaging others but to advantaging and improving the world health.We were looking to work for community benefit with the relative freedom of a non-charitable company form, and,  to be able to identify and adapt to circumstances  with a clear assurance of not-for-profit distribution status. By the CIC regulator we will be committed to share at least 65% of our profits to the neediest through microcredits.

  1.      How do I know that ForexNation is giving its benefits to Microcredits?

We are regulated by the CIC regulator who decides whether an organisation is eligible to become, or continue to be, a community interest company (CIC). It is responsible for investigating complaints – taking action if necessary – and it provides guidance and assistance to help people set up CICs.

Moreover, you will be able to see the latest microcredit given through our website. In Adition, you can also access to the Kiva’s charity website where you will be able to see  all the microcredits that ForexNation has given so far.

  1.      Will I be, as a trader, refunded if anything with ForexNations goes wrong?

You, as a trader, will not be affected and you will able to keep trading as usual through our broker provider. You must take into account that our purposes is to share our own benefit to microcredits and we, above all, care for our client’s protection.

 

  1.       What  does microcredit stand for ?

Microloans (also known as microcredits) are extremely small loans given to impoverished people to help them become self employed. Microloans have a small value; most loans are less than $100 in size. These loans are generally issued to finance entrepreneurs who run micro-enterprises in developing countries. Examples of micro-enterprises include basket-making, sewing, street vending and raising poultry. The average global interest rate charged on micro-loans is about 35%. Although this may sound high, it is much lower than other available alternatives (such as informal local money lenders). Moreover, MFIs must charge interest rates that cover the higher costs associated with processing the labor-intensive micro-loan transactions.

Microfinance began in the 1970s when social entrepreneurs began lending money on a large scale to the working poor. One individual who gained worldwide recognition for his work in microfinance is professor Muhammad Yunus who, with Grameen Bank, won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize. Yunas and Grameen Bank demonstrated that the poor have the ability to pull themselves out of poverty. Yunus also demonstrated that loans made to the working poor, if properly structured, had very high repayment rates. His work caught the attention of both social engineers and profit-seeking investors

Generally, traders decide to open and close many positions during the day in order to gain the maximum profit in a short time.  However,  if they decide to hold a position overnight, then each account is credited or debited at an interest charge calculated on the full size (notional value) of the trader’s’ position. This particular type of interest is called rollover fee or overnight swap and it is automatically calculated normally between 10pm and 3 am (London time zone) .It is important to highlight that the word “swap” in this particular case must not be confused with the well known financial term of Swap as derivative contract, although the use of the same word correctly suggest a cash flow exchange between two counterparties.
