Our history

Although the forex and CFD trading platform Q8 Trade launched in 2017, we didn’t just spring out of thin air. Our background is steeped in tradition – Q8 Securities is our parent company. Like both of our parents, our number one goal is the happiness, security and success of our traders.

Q8 Securities was established in 1985 as Al-Arabi and rebranded in 2017. This successful brokerage firm facilitates investments in equities and derivatives both inside Kuwait and in international markets.

Working with corporate advisory, direct investments and investment management, it advises both individuals and institutions inside Kuwait and beyond.
