Your Bourse opens new Limassol office to serve clients in Cyprus, Dubai

abdelaziz Fathi

Technology vendor Your Bourse has today announced the opening of a new office in Limassol, Cyprus.

Located at Thalia 3, Limassol 3011, Your Bourse’s new headquarter signals its intent to launch a major expansion across both Cyprus and Dubai. Cyprus is already a major global hub for the company’s client base, forex and brokerage companies, and thus is well-positioned as a business gateway to access Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. This will allow the London-based company to get closer and offer better services to their partners, customers and prospects across these regions.

Founder Andrey Vedikhin and CRO Elina Pedersen will be operating from the Cyprus office for the following year to oversee the set-up, hiring, and training of their team. Additional hires are planned to join later this year, the company said in a statement.

Commenting on the news, Elina Pedersen, Co-CEO of Your Bourse, said: “Expanding our Customer Success Team is a significant turning point in the growth of Your Bourse and demonstrates our commitment to our regional client base who have demonstrated interest in our Platform-as-a-Service. We selected Cyprus as our hub as we can capitalize on the strong local talent in the industry as we continue delivering our world-class 24/7 support.”

Your Bourse’s technology stack combines multi-asset liquidity for over 10000 instruments, including cryptocurrencies and equities with “ultra-fast connectivity.” In an already saturated market, Your Bourse’s B2B approach is a huge deciding factor for new and existing brokers in adopting their technology.

Your Bourse has been actively expanding the liquidity options available through its Liquidity Hub. Its network counts a number of prominent liquidity providers such as CFH Clearing and FXCM Pro and Scope Markets, to name a few.

The trade execution technology company has recently won three accolades; “Most Reliable Connectivity Provider,” “Most innovative B2B Service Provider – Matching Engine” and “Exceptional Risk Management Tools.”

We asked Elina Pedersen, Co-CEO and chief revenue officer (CRO) at Your Bourse, what these awards represent for the company and, more importantly, what it means for their customers?

Ms. Pedersen explains that Your Bourse has taken home these prestigious awards based on performance results related to a wide variety of parameters. Overall, the recognition acknowledges excellence in providing a Platform-as-a-Service solution explicitly developed for FX, CFD and crypto liquidity, data analytics, reporting and risk management.

As she states, “It’s a proof of the concept, so to say, and we can see that our customers really appreciate our effort in providing them with one-of-a-kind services.”

Elina also highlighted that Your Bourse was honored to win these highly-regarded awards as they achieved the ‘five-nines’ availability, which confirms their services are fully accessible. Five-nines availability – or 99.999% – is the percentage of time a service is accessible to a user in a given period, usually defined as a year.
