When Was Pepperstone Founded?
Pepperstone was founded in 2010 by a veteran management-team with years of experience in the forex and technology industries. The company is based in Melbourne, Australia and has offices in Dallas, USA and Shanghai, China.

Whenever possible we aim to create, develop, and introduce our own solutions that ultimately make online trading easier, fairer and more professional for clients whether they be a small retail investor or a large institution.
Since 2010, Pepperstone has spearheaded the evolution of online forex trading in over 65 countries, helping this asset-class to become more accessible to the individual retail investor.
