ICM CapitalrRebrands to ICM.com
In August, Finance Magnates reported that ICM Capital rebranded itself to ICM.com to represent all of the firm’s group entities under one brand. At the time, the firm unveiled a new logo and a redesigned website.
According to the statement, which was given exclusively to Finance Magnates, the new brand will be the global face for the broker as it continues its expansion into new markets. It also follows on the heels of solid financial performance by ICM UK in the 2014-2015 and 2016-2017 fiscal years.
