Best Forex Trading Platform Asia & Europe 2015
It’s the biggest financial services provider you may not have heard of – yet. Ikon Financial group, with its head office in Hong Kong, serves well over a quarter of a million clients in 95 countries. In 2014, the group registered a turnover of a staggering $1.48 trillion in forex financial derivatives. With subsidiaries in London, Melbourne, and Dubai, Ikon Financial Group is exceptionally well-poised to help its clients maximise exposure to the upside of the full breadth of forex trading. The group also maintains offices in Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, and Cairo.
Operating a state-of-the-art and proprietary electronic communications network (ECN) enables Ikon Financial Group to plug its clients trading orders directly into the market, thus obtaining a true and high-definition picture of trading activity. The ECN ensures that all orders are promptly relayed to Ikon Financial Group’s liquidity providers.
Ikon Financial Group gives investors ready access to a comprehensive range of products such as precious metals, futures, non-deliverable forwards (NDFs), CFDs (contract for difference), and options, amongst others. The company deploys a fully-featured trading platform that it developed in-house to ensure a seamless connection between investors and the markets. The company has also been one of the drivers – selected after a rigorous vetting process by the Chinese government – of the country’s newest financial hub in the city of Tianjin.
A testament to its corporate strength, Ikon Financial Group is regulated by regulatory agencies on four continents. The group holds an Australian Financial Services license and is subject to the notoriously tight regulations imposed by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority. As an added layer of security, the group guarantees deposits up to $140,000 per account and hold its customers’ funds at AAA rated banks.
Executing close to $6bn worth of trades each day, Ikon Financial Group is a force to reckon with in the Asian, and indeed global, market. The CFI.co judging panel noted that the company has managed to fully leverage its ECN to offer near-instant, nanosecond execution and a deep liquidity pool. With a platform that offers unrivalled ease-of-use and inspires confidence, Ikon Financial Group is a most worthy winner of the 2015 Best Forex Trading Platform Asia & Europe Award.
