Alpari UK has expanded its range of account currencies to include the Singapore dollar (SGD) and South African rand (ZAR). Clients are now able to deposit and withdraw funds in these currencies without facing any currency conversion fees.
David Hodge, Chief Executive Officer at Alpari (UK) Limited, commented, “Our aim at the start of the project was to remove a barrier our Singapore and South African clients face: currency conversion fees. By providing the Singapore dollar and South African rand as an account currency, clients in these locations can manage their funds without paying any conversion fees. We believe this provides a better overall experience, supporting our ethos of trading the way it should be”.
This brings the total number of account currencies Alpari UK offers its MT4 and MT5 clients to seven: the Australian dollar (AUD), British pound (GBP), US dollar (USD), euro (EUR), Swiss franc (CHF), and now the Singapore dollar (SGD) and South African rand (ZAR).
These new additions follow Alpari UK’s recent unveiling of the Market account, which offers 59 currency pairs, leverage of 1:500 and a minimum spread of 0 pips on all FX markets.
