LeapRate Exclusive… LeapRate has learned that Binary Options brokerage firm anyoption plans to significantly expand its product offering beyond binary options trading into more traditional portfolio management and investment advice. anyoption currently is one of the few regulated binary options brokerage operators.
anyoption parent company Ouroboros Derivatives Trading Ltd has, as of September 26, extended its MIFID Market Maker license to include Portfolio Management and Investment Advice. The extension followes a special meeting of the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC), where the license extension application was approved in accordance with Article 23 of the Investment Services and Activities and Regulated Market Law.
anyoption CEO Shy Datika commented to LeapRate:
We are proud to extend our Market Makers licence into the areas of Portfolio Management and Investment Advice. anyoption has always put regulation first and we see this extension as an opportunity to introduce to our large and loyal customer base new range of products that are different the traditional Binary Options.
anyoption will be able to provide these new services, subject to recruiting qualified personnel and establishing a new and segregated Portfolio Management & Investment Advice Department.
We expect anyoption to make a formal announcement of the changes in the coming days.
