DRS Markets is hoping to attract customers with its proposition of tight spreads, low margin requirements and many other trading facilities. This is in addition to its competitive pricing across a full range of over 8,000 US securities, which the company currently offers for Wall Street investors with the promise of an ultra-low-latency, customisable platform offering.
Commenting on the launch, Director of Strategy and Risk at DRS Markets Richard Lester said: “Impending Brexit has not put us off our plans to launch into Europe from a London base. We could have gone to another financial centre with the correct EU frameworks in place, but we’re here because we want the best regulated environment in which to thrive. We’ve worked hard to gain FCA authorisation because we believe it’s worth the time and effort. It will stand us in good stead with investors around the world. In our eyes, London is, and always will be, the best financial centre for trading products.”
He added: “What we do is very straightforward. We eliminate as many distractions as possible, leaving our investors free to focus on identifying the investment opportunity. We’re a reliable, easy to use, cost-effective, well-regulated trading platform. We provide expert support together with a high-quality product in a straightforward format that our customers can easily comprehend and employ.”
