The world’s largest retail forex provider by volume’s London office launched its in-house developed trading platform today. GMO-Z.com Trade UK Limited, part of the Japan-headquartered GMO CLICK Group, will offer forex, indices and commodities on its multi-asset platform.
“We are excited to announce the full launch of Z.com Trade and with the strong foundation of the in-house technology and expertise that we have developed in our home market of Japan, we look forward to connecting with even more traders around the world through our Forex and CFD trading service,” said Hiroyasu Kito, CEO and President of GMO CLICK Holdings Inc., which heads up GMO CLICK Group.
Z.com Trade came about following the purchase of one of three of the only single-letter TLD codes on the internet by GMO Click Securities late last year. The firm purchased the domain name Z.com from Nissan Motor Company for $6.8 million.
The firm offers a range of proprietary platforms including Z.com Trader, its flagship browser-based platform, and trading apps for iOS2 freedom to trade on their PC or on-the-move using their mobile device.
Authorised and regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Z.com Trade’s platforms are currently available in both English and Simplified Chinese, and more languages will be added in the near future. An award-winning company in Japan, the GMO CLICK Group expanded its global presence to Hong Kong in recent years and looks for continued growth in both Europe and Asia.
“In addition to our commitment to providing trader-centric technology and the best pricing possible, we aim to offer innovative solutions that make trading both interesting and enjoyable. We have found that this philosophy makes it simple for new traders to interact with global financial markets, while more experienced traders can engage with a professional environment that continues to meet their needs,” Tomitaka Ishimura, CEO of GMO-Z.com Trade UK Limited added.
