Commenting on the launch of Opto, the Head of Growth at CMC Markets, Edward Gotham, said: “we are very excited to launch Opto today as it provides both traders and non-traders with a valuable source of inspiration that we believe no other publication is currently offering.
“From experience, our clients are currently inundated with large volumes of information, as are many of us in our day-to-day lives, so we have ensured that Opto offers unique content which looks at the world of finance and business through a different lens. Future editions will continue to feature interviews with some of the leading innovators in the financial services industry, providing readers with new insights and enhancing their overall trading experience.”
Tomas Jivanda, an Opto editor, added: “We’re doing something a bit different from the traditional coverage of the markets with Opto by focusing on stories; whether it be the creativity of innovators building new public companies, or the motivations and personalities behind traders going out on their own. We’ve also looked carefully at the experience that print can offer through considered design and careful story curation.”
The launch edition of the magazine also features columns from established traders and takes a look at TV media and the struggle for market dominance.
