Owned & Operated Since 2010

CapitalFX Timeline

2010 - Founded

CapitalFX was founded in 2010 and is an Australian owned and operated Financial Services Provider.

The Company was originally founded to cater to the then booming user base of the MT4 platform. This was at a time when expert advisors were becoming more mainstream and β€˜ECNs’ were starting to become more common among retail brokers.


2011 - New Leadership

In 2011, the management of CapitalFX asked if Elan Bension and Jeremy Kinstlinger, current happy clients, could join the team to take CapitalFX to the next level.

Overnight, the two went from being traders to running a brokerage and the decision was made to open up CapitalFX's transparent institutional Forex offering to retail investors.

Bringing institutional benefits to the individual has been in the Company’s DNA ever since.
