Saxo Capital Markets sweeps LATAM Trading Awards

Leading online multi-asset trading specialist wins three Global Banking and Finance Review Awards.

Saxo Capital Markets Agente de Valores S.A, the Latin American arm of Saxo Bank, the online multi-asset trading and investment specialist, has been named Best Forex Platform Latin America, Best Multi-Asset Liquidity Provider Latin America and Best Mobile Trading Platform Latin America in the Global Banking and Finance Review Awards 2014.

The awards aim to recognize innovation, achievement and inspirational changes taking place within the global financial community. Saxo Bank’s investment in innovative technology has been vital in developing its mobile offering and has helped to revolutionise retail trading. As a result of this investment, more than 20 percent of trades executed on SaxoTrader are now done via its mobile app which provides access to 184 FX crosses, 9,000+ CFDs, FX Forwards, Spot Gold/Silver, Index-tracking CFDs, Stocks, Futures, ETFs and ETCs.

In addition to investing in technology, Saxo Bank has further strengthened its offering by increasing the number of asset classes available for clients to trade, most notably with the addition of equity options earlier this year. Saxo’s multi-asset trading platform is uniquely placed to aggregate liquidity pools for individual and institutional clients looking to trade with a single platform.

Commenting on the win, Luis Simões Pereira, Director of Saxo Capital Markets Agente de Valores S.A., said:

“Saxo Bank’s ability to innovate faster than its competitors is a key driver behind the success in these awards. We are proud to win the awards and will continue to innovate to meet the trading needs of our clients and help them seize every opportunity there is in the market.

“The needs of Latin American investors have evolved and become more sophisticated over the last years, and we believe we are very well positioned to empower these investors with the tools and technology they need. Our ambition is to strengthen our already established position in Latin America as we look for new ways to innovate and create efficiencies for our clients.”

Saxo Bank Group is present in 26 countries including Uruguay, Brazil and Panama.
