Over the last two years, we have worked very hard to establish a product offering we believe is truly unique and provide a new, different experience to traders, brokers and developers. We have been selective about the brokers we have chosen to work with, and it has taken time getting the regulation right across various jurisdictions. Our new appointments will enable us to accelerate our plans.
“Through the partnerships we have across the globe, we have realized that marketing Tradable to end-users presents a new and exciting opportunity, very different from that of other trading platforms. It provides a new dimension to brokers’ marketing efforts” concluded Mr. Malling.
Mr. Mortensen added: “Over the past years I have seen a wealth of technology innovations within the FX space, and Tradable is definitely one of the most ground breaking and possibly market transforming technologies I have encountered. Along with many industry colleagues I have been sincerely impressed by the level of new thinking and high quality Tradable has brought to the FX space in such a short time. I am immensely looking forward to joining the great team at Tradable and playing a part in the continued success of the company.”
