JP Prime

We will help you get your own FSB License and get your broker regulated to give you peace of mind and the reputation that you deserve. We can help you in South Africa and several other African countries.


Licensing and regulation is one of the hardest things and setbacks for  an individual looking to start their own brokerage. JP Prime has built up a credible reputation with various regulatory entities in Africa and abroad to assist with these requirements. We have relationships across various African countries including eSwatini (formerly Swaziland), Tanzania, Botswana, Namibia, Ghana, Kenya, DRC, Lesotho and many more.

Let us help you with your licensing to make the process as quick and painless as possible. It is important to do things correctly from the start, so nothing gets in the way of your growth.

Services & Training

A big part of our services includes a complete and full guide of all training aspects to run a broker. From compliance to the most common support questions, we have years of experience and know-how which we can share with you.

Every company has teething issues, and learning how to overcome these obstacles can be time consuming and tedious. With our experience, we can offer training for you and your staff to make this process smooth and fast.

MT4 / MT5

JP Prime has various different platforms to cater for any of your specific needs. We have MT4, MT5 and various other web traders that you can use for your clients to trade on. Very soon, we will be offering C Trader as well.

Since the cost of obtaining your own platform can be high we can tailor different solutions to meet your requirements. As your client base grows we can help you increase your offering to expand your reach.

We know what works and what doesn’t. Our aim is to make you as cost effective as possible.

CRM Solutions

JP Prime also has a start-up CRM solution to get you going for your brokerage and your customers. This is done through a fixed API on your website to your CRM and MT4 platform to allow your clients to deposit, withdraw, trade and check their information.

We have built a unique CRM which gives you all the information you need to ensure your broker success. There are other CRM options available for brokers to use, ours is tailor made to be fully compliant with the FCSA regulations.

White Label:

A white label is a broker which uses another technology company to “white label” their MT4 Servers. This technology company provides pricing and hosting to the company and that get to charge a fee per trade to the white label for their services. A white label has their own branded MT4 Platform.

Please note that the vast majority of brokers are White Label brokers. You will not be required to have JP Markets links on your site. Your brand is your own brand and we will not interfere with that.

  • MT4 Setup Fee:  – $ 6000
  • MT4 Monthly Fee – $ 1000
  • Mt4 Mobile Fee – $ 750
  • CRM Costs – R 15 000 per month

We only deal with the best and our MT4 Servers are located in LD4, NY4, and TY3 which guarantee that our brokers have a secure environment for their trades to trade on with support 24 hours a day and 5 days a week.

FSP licensing: Up to 16 weeks


Own MT4 Platform

Own website

Own FSP Number

Own company

Build a brand which has value


Very costly to setup and sustain

Costs higher and include office costs, employee costs.

Require a solid database of customers to trade to meet costs.

Risk of success is much lower as the high costs increase your risk of failure.

FSCA licensing can take up to 4 months for approval.

Juristic Rep:

Our most popular offering for start-ups is our juristic rep offer. A juristic rep is where your company, E.G.  Joe Soap FX, is regulated and authorized to operate as a Forex broker but you don’t have your own FSP Number. You will become a representative underneath JP Markets and your clients will sign the customer agreement with JP Markets and deposit with JP Markets but you benefit from all the lower costing and therefore higher rebates.

FSB Requirements: 3 – 4 days

Kindly note that you must have a minimum of 250 client accounts which are ready and funded with at least $ 300 in order to become a juristic rep. Combined total value is also taken into account, therefore, a smaller number of clients but bigger account size is also considered.


Quick and easy setup

No cost requirements

Enjoy all the benefits and revenue of a broker without the costs.

No Employees or offices required.

Can use any of the JP offices throughout SA

Own company

Many of our partners start as Juristic Reps and then grow into their own MT4 White label once they have about 2000 clients. This decreases their risk and cost requirements and also gives them time to learn and understand how to run a brokerage successfully. It also benefits them to enjoy the higher rebates of this model whilst working towards their ultimate goal of a broker.


No branded MT4 Platform

Less control over operations of the trading platform
