The quickly growing (organically and through acquisitions) Cyprus registered broker GFC Markets is now rebranding to markets.com. GFC just acquired this great domain name and immediately started transferring its business to it. This is one of only a few brokers who own a keyword domain name most notable of which is Gain Capital with its forex.com. forex.com domain name was acquired for a rumored figure of $1 million and I presume that markets.com wasn’t cheap either. Markets.com domain name, unlike forex.com, will allow its owner to position itself not only as a hardcore forex broker but also as a multi asset and markets broker, which I presume is GFC’s intention.
Nicosia, Cyprus – October 25th – since launching last year, GFC Markets has experienced exceptional growth; in recognition of this, the Middle-East Forex Expo awarded it with 2010’s Fastest Growing Broker Award.
Within the past year and keeping up with demand, the Forex and CFD trading firm opened offices in Russia, Poland, Romania, France and Germany (with additional local offices set to open in the coming months). Offering online FX and CFD trading, its website (www.markets.com) currently operates in 13 languages and serves clients from over 100 countries.
Encouraged by its remarkable success, the Company decided to significantly expand its products and services, and has recently completed:
- The addition of MT4 as a second download-based trading platform
- The launch of a new browser-based trading platform
- The introduction of several mobile trading applications (iPhone/iPad, Blackberry, etc.)
- Offering more than 100 new tradable instruments
- The launch of several local offices
As part of its substantial investment to become an industry-leading broker, the Company has decided that it should also invest in a name which more suitably fits its preeminent status – recently, it completed the acquisition of the domain Markets.com and as of today, GFC Markets is officially Markets.com – Where the World Comes to Trade.
“When your broker of choice is named Markets.com, you know you’re trading with an industry leader; here, Where the World Comes to Trade is more than a slogan… it’s a fact,” says Adam R. Ovesen, Head of the Company’s Trading Desk. “With 2011 just around the corner, we plan on expanding to even more markets and offering an even wider range of services.”
Markets.com is the trading name of Safecap Investments Limited – an online Forex and CFD Broker – EU regulated under CySEC (092/08) and registered with such global regulatory authorities as the FSA and other EEA financial licensing bodies.
