Aaron Chan has been appointed as the new General Manager of EDDID Securities and Futures.
EDDID Securities and Futures is a Hong Kong-based company that offers trading in Hong Kong and US stocks, global futures, and securities. It also has a range of investment products, according to its website. These include mutual funds and unit trust funds. It also provides securities lending and stock financing and educational services such as seminars. It is regulated by the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission.
The company was rumoured to be connected to a cryptocurrency called ‘Caesar Coin’, which apparently used the EDDID name to make the coin look more legitimate. In April the company officially declared on its website that it has no affiliation with that or any other “electronic currency”, calling the people behind Caesar Coin “criminals”.
