Investing in Kenya is challenging, and traders must thoroughly research the financial market to create a solid plan before making a move. Note that there are numerous assets you can invest in, including forex, stock, commodities, cryptocurrencies, etc. However, finding the best online broker in Kenya that hosts your preferred asset is crucial for the best experience. So, how do you find such brokers? 

Market research is crucial, and since investors can spend hours in the process, we list below the top three expert-approved online brokers regulated in Kenya to choose from. The best element about investing with regulated brokers is that they guarantee your funds’ safety and offer the best trading environment. 

  1. Pepperstone

Pepperstoe is one of the best online brokers regulated in Kenya by the Capital Markets Authority (CMA). The broker is safe and hosts over 800 CFD instruments, including shares, commodities, indices, and ETFs. Pepperstone also allows forex trading using global currencies. Its platform is user-friendly, has an intuitive design, and is customizable to suit all users. All you have to do is deposit at least $200 to get started. 

Although Pepperstone’s minimum deposit requirement may seem high for low-budget CFD and forex traders, Pepperstone’s trading fees are among the lowest in the financial industry. There are no inactivity fees, but it is crucial to trade frequently if you want to boost your skill level and maximize your potential in the financial market. You can test this broker using its demo account to understand these features and more before making a decision.  

  1. AvaTrade

AvaTrade is another world-renowned broker that accepts Kenyan clients willing to trade forex and CFD securities. Overall, over 1200 digital assets are traded on its standard or MT4 and MT5 platforms. Like Pepperstone above, the broker has a straightforward account registration procedure and will allow you to access its listed assets once you make a minimum deposit of $100. Trading fees are also low, and users can maximize their experience on social and copy trading platforms. 

Keep in mind that AvaTrade has a trading app called AvaTradeGO that is highly rated by users on Google Play and the App Store. For instance, it is considered one of the best investment apps in the UK since many UK users have left excellent testimonials regarding their experiences on social platforms. Besides being regulated by CMA, AvaTrade is also overseen by global authorities, including FCA, CySEC, etc. — a clear indication that you can trust it with your funds. 

  1. HotForex

HotForex has been existing since 2010 and is one of our highly recommended forex and CFD brokers for Kenyan traders. With this broker, you get exposed to forex, commodities, stocks, cryptocurrencies, and more, all of which you can trade on your preferred account that suits your skill level.

HotForex charges low spreads for all its trading services, and you can start using it for as little as $5 on MT4 and MT5 platforms. Besides desktop, HotForex is compatible with Android and iOS mobile devices, so download its app from Google Play or the App Store and trade on the go. 

If you are a beginner, HotForex can be an excellent choice since it hosts numerous learning materials for skills development. It also has an in-built HF Copy platform where you get to follow expert traders of your choice and mirror their positions that you believe could bring about good profits. Plus, the broker offers a demo account for testing it and gauging your skill level before taking a plunge into the live financial markets. 

Final Thoughts

The financial market is volatile, and predicting an asset’s value when trading or investing can be challenging. However, with the best broker in your corner, it is easy to conduct market analysis since you have adequate resources at your disposal. The broker you select must be highly regulated, fit your budget, and be reliable when it comes to platform performance and support service. Since you do not want to spend your money without gaining confidence in a broker, consider testing it first using its demo account and decide whether it meets your trading requirements.
