The importance of industry research by specialist organizations within the FX industry is paramount, especially in such a technology-driven and highly competitive environment. On that basis, international FX, CFD and spread betting and conventional equity online trading research firm Investment Trends is expanding its reach into further important regions with its opening of an office in London.
From its original base in Sydney, Australia, where Investment Trends has over ten years worth of experience in researching the domestic retail wealth management and global broking markets, the company has grown substantially to cover Europe and North America, regions in which business has increased substantially. For this reason, Investment Trends considers London to be an obvious choice for permanent presence in the Northern Hemisphere.
Investment Trends currently covers the UK, US, German, and French markets in addition to its strong presence in the Asia-Pacific region (Australia, Singapore & Hong Kong), and provides decision making support and new insights to over 200 financial services firms across the world, including banking organizations, platform providers, industry associations and online brokerages, however the firm also provides advisory services to regulatory authorities in some of the most well respected jurisdictions.
Pawel Rokicki, who heads up the London office today explained to LeapRate the ethos of the expansion: “We are really excited about our London post. Being closer to our clients in this part of the world will help us service them even better. Europe is one of our key areas of expansion, with Spain and Italy being the next markets on our radar.”
