Charterprime, an Australian forex brokerage focused on a client base in the Asia Pacific region, has announced a collaboration with AirAsia Berhad (MYX:5099), which is one of the more significant airlines in the region. The logo of the broker now appears on the AirAsia Airbus A320-200 aircraft. Usually, brokers will sponsor sports teams, like 24Option has done with the Italian soccer team Juventus.
Tune Group Sdn Bhd, AirAsia’s parent company with a current market cap of $10.9 billion, partnered with Charterprime to reduce costs and hedge against market volatility by giving a new space for online trading of financial spot and futures products and commodities, with an emphasis on forex.
