Alpari. The beginning
The Alpari brand, which today is known across the world, was founded in Russia in 1998 during one of the country's most devastating economic crises. The government had just defaulted on its loans, the ruble was in freefall, and the stock market was on the verge of total collapse. It was at this very moment, when it seemed that everything had fallen to pieces, that the men who would go on to found our company decided it was time to delve into one of the few markets that had been left standing after a string of defaults – Forex.
The birth of a brand
The Alpari brand was born on the 24th of December, 1998. It was on this day that our newly-formed dealing centre and the first company under the brand - Alpari Limited - opened its doors to the public.
