CHARLOTTE, 26 June 2019 – Advanced Markets Group is the leading institutional multi-asset liquidity and true prime-of-prime service provider. Today, we announce the addition of cryptocurrency CFDs to our expansive suite of tradeable products. Our firm now offers CFD trading in Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ether, Ripple, EOS, NEO, Stellar and Litecoin, providing clients with direct access to diverse and exciting new markets.
Interest in the cryptocurrency markets, and the use of Blockchain technology in general, has exploded in recent years. What was originally perceived as a short-lived fad, has proved itself to be a viable alternative to the more established markets. We are convinced that these additional CFDs are valuable for our clients.
Investment Horizon Expansion for Clients
“The cryptocurrency market has had its up and downs, but it’s certainly emerging as an asset class on a global arena. Despite uncertainty surrounding the outlook for many of the cryptocurrencies, we see a growing adoption of crypto by both retail and institutional investors, proving that it has the merits to exist” commented Natallia Hunik, Advanced Markets’ Global Head of Sales. “We are proud to start offering crypto CFD pricing and execution to our institutional clients as they look to expand their investment horizons and take advantage of this highly volatile asset class.”
Advanced Markets’ CEO, Anthony Brocco added that “the firm is committed to its core business model of providing institutional, transparent Direct Market Access to multiple markets and trade opportunities. The addition of cryptocurrencies highlights the fact that Advanced Markets remains focused on the interests of its valued client base and is continually looking to expand and improve upon its industry-leading offering”.
