Ava FX, a large European broker, just announced that it completed the acquisition of ART Co. a Japanese Forex broker.
This move represents a major breakthrough for Ava FX which strives to become a global broker after solidifying its presence in Europe and the Middle East. Japanese market, as Oz Golan wrote today, is one of the largest in the world (the largest IMO) and enjoys great popularity with the local crowd. Setting a foothold on this soil would expose Ava to a new and large Asian audience as well as help it penetrate other distant markets such as China and Australia.
However, Japanese market is also very much different than US/EU markets in several parameters such as culture, language and trading characteristics and integrating Ava’s software and business model/marketing concept can be a double edged sword if not handled correctly.
Another interesting thing I find here is that Ava reports over $40 billion monthly traded volume. If this is the case then it’s more than double than the figures I expected Ava to have. Good work.
