LeapRate Exclusive… LeapRate has learned that FCA and ASIC regulated retail forex broker ThinkForex is about to rebrand its operations under the ThinkMarkets brand.
The ThinkMarkets.com beta site has been live for about a week at www.thinkmarkets.com.
We expect a formal announcement from the company in the near future.
Alongside the new name, logo and brand, we understand that the new ThinkMarkets will also be launching its own proprietary trading platform called ThinkTrader. Currently ThinkForex offers MT4 and mobile trading.
The company’s new affiliate program will be labeled – you guessed it – ThinkAffiliates.
Launched originally in New Zealand in 2010 by brothers Nauman and Faizan Anees, ThinkForex relocated its headquarters to Australia in 2012 receiving ASIC licensing. ThinkForex expanded to the UK in early 2015, receiving FCA regulation.
ThinkForex’s move is consistent with what a number of leading retail forex brokers have done in the past year. The company’s much more picture / visually-oriented home page with more of a landing page feel, and a move to promote a wider product offering than just FX has led to similar rebrands and changes at brokers such as ETX Capital, LCG, easyMarkets, and CMC Markets.
We will continue to follow this story, and bring our readers more details on the rebrand as they become available. Remember, you heard about it first at LeapRate!
