Hantec Markets has officially unveiled a new partnership deal with East London football team West Ham United. The brokerage has signed a three-year deal that includes branding at the stadium, social media and some other content.
The Stratford-based team finished last season in 11th place in the English Premier League, and will be playing at the iconic London Stadium for a second season in a row after returning to it in 2016.
As part of the deal, Hantec Markets will take ownership of the club’s Fantasy Football content.
For Hantec, the value of this partnership is global, as West Ham has a following in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Thus the deal should boost the brokerage’s global presence. The firm has offices in London, Sydney, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Auckland, Dubai and Mauritius.
Commenting on the news, the Vice-Chairman of West Ham United, Karren Brady, said: “Hantec’s brand values and ‘Trust Through Transparency’ slogan fit perfectly with West Ham United’s approach and we are very excited about the benefits that the partnership can bring as we continue to grow and develop our corporate identity on a global scale.”
Hantec Markets has just redesigned its website to accommodate the increasing needs of its clients. A number of changes have been made to the client portal section. Customers of the broker can now easily deposit and withdraw funds, view trading accounts and positions, make internal transfers, generate custom trade reports, and more.
Commenting on the deal, the Chief Operating Officer of Hantec Markets, Hayel Abu-Hamdan, said: “As we launch a new website providing an even better service for our new and existing clients, we see ourselves taking a firm foothold in the premier league of brokers.
With ever increasing interest in both the financial markets and the Premier League, we view our respective London bases as a perfect cohesive line-up. We very much look forward to working with the team at West Ham United.”
