Global electronic brokerage firm Interactive Brokers has collaborated with HSBC to enable HSBC's clients to access the global trading markets through a unified platform.

Initially Targeting the UAE

According to MarketsMedia, HSBC's customers in the UAE will be the first to benefit from this partnership. They will have access to equities , ETFs, and bonds in up to 25 markets and 77 exchanges worldwide. This is facilitated through WorldTrader, a digital investment platform powered by Interactive Brokers. The platform is accessible via mobile app or online, and plans to expand to more markets soon.
