    2. Expulsion the company from the commissions’ membership. Reasons for such expulsion can serve:

    Key performance indicators of the International Finance Commission activity is Compensation Fund, which was created by it. The Compensation Fund acts as an insurance policy for members’ clients, which provides ensuring fulfillment of the financial obligations of members of the Finance Commission.

    The Compensation fund is formed from the share, released from monthly membership fees. The amount of such share is 10% of payments, if Financial commission doesn’t provide other.

    All bankroll of the Compensation fund is kept on the separate bank account and can be used only for its intended purpose designation.

    Herewith, it should be noted, that payments from Compensation fund realized only in the case, when the member of the Financial commission disclaims to pay the awarded amount to the applicant.

    Another important criteria here is the presence of restrictions on payments. They consist in setting the limit to the money compensation, which can the applicant receive. At this moment, the limit of money compensation per one applicant amounts 5 000 and 10 000 US dollars (depending from the members’ category). The amount of the existing can be changed at any time by the decision of the Financial commission. All changes and additions, adopted by the commission, are reflected on the official website.

    By submitting a complaint, you must consider the following points:
    1. The complaint must contain:

    · description of the nature of the dispute with the Member in reasonable detail;
    · inform about the outcome of dispute while resolving the issue in company-member (initially customer should try to resolve the dispute inside the company, and only if they not come to a compromise, customer will send a complaint to the Financial Commission);
    · the compensation specification;
    · copies of supporting documentation and every document relevant to the Complaint

    The applicant's complaint is viewed only in if it relates to the consideration of the competence of the Finance Commission. If the complaint contains requirements that are not relevant powers of the commissions and / or the complaint is filed with any impairments, the Finance Commission shall provide the applicant a reasoned reply with a detailed description of why its application can not be considered.

    Another important detail: the Complaint is not brought within 90 days from when the Complainant received a final determination of his Complaint from the Members.

    The complaint resolution will consists of two phases. After complain reviewing, the Dispute Resolution Committee shall take one of the following decisions:

    · Fully or partially satisfies the requirements of the applicant; If applicant accepts such decision in writing within 14 days of the receipt of the written decision from the Dispute Resolution Committee, because at the end of this period, the claim will be closed.
    · If Commission decides in favor of member, the applicant should write a refusal from complaint within 7 days.

    Decisions and orders taken or issued by the Committee are binding on the member. Whenever the Dispute Resolution Committee makes an Award or issues an Order, the Member must comply with it fully and within the time period specified in such Award or Order. If the Dispute Resolution Committee’s Award or Order does not specify a particular time period, then the Member must comply with the Award or Order as soon as practicable.

    Nice explanation sir, you have really exposed us to knowing how the financial market and its regulating environments are working. But I would like to ask you some questions. Does country matters in the standards and power of regulators? Because in my view, they matter, and like this International Finance Commission(IFC) which is based in Hong Kong, we hardly hear their efficacy of monitoring and sanctioning.

    Besides, Since there are both Voluntary withdrawal and Expulsion as a means of leaving the commission, are there any security checks before the commission let the broker go? By security checks, I mean; scrutinizing them to know if they had cheated their client or manipulated their service in anyway. And if so, what would the commission do in case they find them guilty?

    Broker makes money through financial commissions. If you want to make money as a broker you must charge money for every trade a client or trader opens. that is how the brokers makes money. Pretty safe money though as it doest matter your trade wins or not.

    Can somebody like me file a complaint against any broker that has reneged from the terms and conditions of operations to which clients are made to sign for before opening an account and if the presence of such a complainant is required and the fellow does not have the means of travelling because of the distance, how would one expect justice to be served ?Any way , that is why it is good to always invest the money you can afford to lose
