FCA regulated multi asset prime brokerage Divisa Capital, part of the Equiti Group, has announced the launch of its new proprietary trading platform, Divisa Vault.
We had reported back in September about the impending launch of Divisa’s new trading platform, when Divisa hired Sammy Christou from London Capital Group Holdings plc (LON:LCG) as its new head of Trading.
Since raising $100 million in new financing earlier this year, Divisa has been on a hiring spree leading up to the launch of the new platform. Other than adding Mr. Christou as noted above, Divisa has hired Khaldoun Sharaiha from ADS as Co-Head of Retail Sales, Hormoz Faryar as Global Head of Institutional Sales, and Tony Philip as CMO. Divisa also finalized plans to launch its own Retail FX brand, Equiti.com.
Divisa’s new trading platform gives traders access to liquidity over API, desktop application or any web browser using the latest HTML5 technology and security.
Divisa Vault is being made available to clients on both a principal and an agency setup.
CEO of Divisa Capital, Mushegh Tovmasyan said of the new platform:
The launch of the new trading platform brings significant improvements to Divisa Capital’s offering. We are very pleased to provide our clients with a new generation technology platform that provides a more efficient, highly secure and customised trading experience.
