TriumphFX is a confusing online Forex and CFD (Contract For Difference) provider. The company is regulated by the Cypriot regulatory body, CySEC.
The owner is Triumph Int. (Cyprus) Ltd with license number 293/16. The company, however, has another entity offshore, based in Vanuatu, that it hasn’t reported to CySEC.
Triumph Int. Ltd is a new owner — it was previously known as G.S.E. Golden Sky Europe Ltd., a firm connected to the bank of Lithuania and kept all its clients’ money there.
We cannot really call it reputable, can we? That’s probably why the company needed a change of owner.
Those dealing with a CySEC-regulated entity are fully protected, while those under Vanuatu governing law are subject to loose offshore investment rules.

How can TriumphFX take your money?
It doesn’t matter where you’re from, the broker has the discretionary right to assign you to any of its entities.
Simply speaking, even if you’re from Cyprus, it doesn’t mean you will get to deal with your home country entity.
You may easily be assigned with the offshore one. And that’s where you will be a subject of Vanuatu rules.
Putting regulated entities aside, brokers like TriumphFX have a good reason to register offshore. They’re evaluating the client and deciding whether it’s worth scamming or not. Once they decide you are good for a scheme, you’ll end up with a Vanuatu entity, and there’s no limit.
You will be promised profit, your account manager will ask for more money every day, and once you ask for a payout, your account will be frozen.
That’s how most offshore companies are operating, and that’s why it’s risky dealing with them. Since you have no guarantees about which entity you’ll be assigned to, staying away from the TriumphFX scam is safest.
If you’re still not convinced that a CySEC-regulated firm can be a scam, check out these regulatory warnings. It seems that TriumphFX is operating in Asia without proper regulations, which led to complaints, and the broker was eventually blacklisted.
