Alpari Group was a UK-based foreign exchange (FX, Forex), precious metals and CFD broker headquartered in London.[1][2] The company applied for insolvency on January 19, 2015, following heavy losses after the Swiss National Bank unexpectedly removed the franc's ceiling against the euro.[3]

For UK residents, the company also offered financial spread betting on Forex and indices.[4] In addition to trading products, Alpari provided market research tools such as trading reports and charts. The company served retail, professional and institutional clients. It was headquartered in the City of London and had subsidiaries in Germany, Japan as well as a Representative Office in China.[citation needed]
