The Financial Commission (FinaCom), an independent self-regulatory compliance specialist for the financial services industry, has certified the web based trading platform Umstel, according to a FinaCom statement.
The certification of Umstel followed a rigorous review process to evaluate technical information requirements within the trading platform. This included a list of points to independently verify its system security capabilities, capacity, business disaster recovery and continuity plan, as well as its concessions to reporting and record keeping.
For its part, Umstel is a trading platform that offers direct trading on more than 8,000 CFDs on single stocks and ETFs. The developer claims to guarantee the best stock exchange execution as orders are executed on the exchange and real quotes are delivered directly to the platform without any intermediaries. Umstel’s platform also automatically supports all corporate events, including dividends, splits, and mergers.
