FCA regulated FX and CFDs broker ActivTrades has announced the introduction of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) to its global client base.
ETFs are marketable securities that can be used to track an index, commodity, bonds or a basket of assets like an index fund. As the underlying index increases in value the ETF increases too. This allows traders to balance the risk profile of an investment across an array of different companies in sectors such as finance, energy or healthcare, making them suitable to be traded in the long or short-term.
ActivTrades customers will be able to benefit from fast execution every time they trade as the CFDs on ETFs are offered on the MetaTrader 5 platform, available on desktop and mobile. ActivTrades are offering a competitive leverage of up to 1:20, meaning traders are required to pay only a fraction of the overall value of the transaction. The option of hedging has also been made available which is ideal to ActivTrades’ vast client base.
Andrea Draghi, Risk Director for ActivTrades said of the product release:
We’re delighted to introduce exchange-traded funds to our customers. This will allow them to balance the risk profile of their trade and diversify across sectors.”
As part of its ongoing commitment to protect its global customer base, ActivTrades also doubled its client insurance to £1 million last year, at no additional cost to its clients, to provide further assurances to clients with significantly larger investments.
ActivTrades stated that it plans to announce more new developments in 2018.
ActivTrades has its headquarters in London, and offices in Milan, Sofia and Dubai.
