Our History



CrescoFX was founded in 2011 by engineer-turned-entrepreneur Derek Mayne.

As a boutique FX broker, CrescoFX was designed to serve professional traders seeking a reliable and competitive client-centred alternative to traditional liquidity providers. The company grew initially through word-of-mouth and referrals through existing clients and now has operations in several international locations.

CrescoFX is managed by a team of experts who joined the company from some of the top European trading houses.


In 2016 CrescoFX applied to the MFSA for a licence variation in order to offer its clients a wider range of financial products, including equities, futures and options.


In 2017 CrescoFX moved its centre of operations to London to attract new talent, increase service levels for clients, and benefit from proximity to the City of London and other European financial markets.


CrescoFX has been authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority since July 2017.


As a licensed and regulated broker under the Financial Conduct Authority, we are subject to stringent EU directives and regulations regarding client handling.

Our internal systems incorporate strict security measures to ensure personal information is protected and that clients experience the safest online trading available.
