This regulation gives 101Investing the right to offer its services to members of the European Economic Area as defined by the MiFID II regulations. This alone makes 101Investing a reputable broker as it has oversight from a third-party regulator. We also found the broker to be very transparent in the information offered on its website, which is another good sign of trustworthiness.

In addition to its being regulated by CySEC, the broker is also a member of the Investor Compensation Fund, which will provide covered clients with up to 20,000 euros in the event that the broker becomes insolvent. Client funds are also protected by being in segregated accounts, which keeps them fully separate from the business funds.
