Grinta Invest is a broker that was founded and has been active since 2015. This broker has several assets, including about 30 currency pairs, precious metals, and a variety of CFDs. The platform used by Grinta Invest is the popular Metatrader 4. Also, from the broker’s website, it is claimed that brokerage is STP / ECN, this means that the broker acts as an intermediary between buyers and sellers in the markets, not as a counterparty.
Grinta – Invest Limited is the company that owns the trademark and website of Grinta Invest. Grinta – Invest Limited is registered in the Marshall Islands, and UK-based Grinta Holdings Limited provides payment services.
Brokers based in the Marshall Islands have no regulation. If a customer trades with an unregulated broker, he must know that the company lacks protection in the event of insolvency. For this reason, we always advise traders to choose well-regulated brokers, for example, through the FCA, Cysec, or ASIC.
However, an unregulated broker need not be a bad broker. For example, the customer reviews of Grinta Invest on various Forex websites and forums are generally quite positive. Their business offer is reasonably good. So if you want an offshore broker for some reason, Grinta Invest may be the right choice for you.
Grinta Invest’s website is available in 4 languages, English, Spanish, Russian, and Arabic.
Grinta Invest customers have two different types of accounts. The accounts have no operating fee, and the spreads they offer are variable. The execution of orders is to market (STP / ECN).

Grinta Invest allows us to have a leverage of up to 1:500. This does not mean that we have to use such high leverage; we can contact the broker’s customer service and modify the leverage to 1:100 or 1:200, for example.
The trade sizes from which we can trade are 0.01 lots (micro lot).
The accounts offered by Grinta Invest have no operating fee. Therefore, the only cost we will take into account is the Swaps: any position held overnight, which will incur a maintenance cost (interest). This amount can be negative or positive depending on the instrument and the direction of the position, and its amount is fixed by the central banks of the base currency of the open position.

With this broker, we can open an account with a reasonable amount, and according to the industry average. For starters, you can open a standard account (STP) with 200 USD. If we have enough capital, the ECN account requires a minimum capital of USD 4,000 to be able to trade with it. It is highly capital but is rewarded for its lower commercial costs (a more economic spread).

The costs vary from broker to broker, but generally, bank transfer withdrawals are more expensive than, for example, electronic retreats.

WITHDRAWAL PROCESSING & WAIT TIME
Nor have we found information about processing and waiting time at the retreats. The most common thing in most brokers is that they process the withdrawal 24 hours after receiving your request. At that time, several methods of payment must be added. For example, a transfer can take a long time to reach your bank account between 1 and 5 days, depending on whether it is an international transfer or not, whether the shipping currency matches the destination currency… etc. Other methods such as ePayments are usually instantaneous receipt of money or at most take one day.
