CFH Clearing announced this Monday that it has yet again extended its multi-asset liquidity offering. This time the prime of prime broker has launched single stock contracts-for-differences (CFDs) for retail brokers and high net worth individuals.
According to the statement released today, the new CFDs can be traded via the firm’s existing trading platforms – its proprietary trading platforms, MetaTrader 4 and 5, as well as its distribution channels such as FIX API. The new trading instruments are also cross-margined with all other asset classes.
Initially, CFH Clearing will offer top traded single stock CFDs from both Europe and the United States. As time professes, the firm will extend its offering to also include single stock CFDs from other markets.
Commenting on the announcement Matthew Maloney, the Chief Executive Officer of CFH Clearing, said: “We remain committed to being a world leading multi-asset liquidity and technology provider.”

“Launching the top traded single stock CFDs globally is a significant development for CFH – there are very few firms who can provide a fully centralised liquidity solution with such a breadth of asset classes. Our focus is on enabling our clients to win their markets by establishing additional marketing and revenue channels in an increasingly competitive space.”
Part of Playtech plc’s financial division, TradeTech Group, CFH Clearing has a global client base of more than 600 institutional clients located across 83 countries. Its customers range from leading retail foreign exchange (forex) brokers to fund managers.
CFH Clearing Adds Five Base Metals to Offering
Today’s announcement comes less than two weeks after the liquidity provider added five new base metals to its offering. As Finance Magnates reported at the time, the company added US dollar-denominated contracts on Aluminium (XAL), Copper (XCU), Nickel (XNI), Lead (XPB) and Zinc (XZN).
As we highlighted at the time, the new contracts are expected to be an important growth driver for TradeTech Group’s liquidity provider which aims to complement its existing product suite and attract new players to the market.
