Douugh has partnered with Openmarkets Group to offer a comprehensive array of integrated trading services across the NYSE, ASX, and Crypto exchanges.

The agreement, which has a minimum term of three years and comes with a notice period of six months, is a major move by the Australian financial super app.

OMG responsible for clearing, settlement, and execution

The deal with the trading infrastructure and wealth management fintech Openmarkets Group (OMG) will enable DOU to offer a full suite of integrated trading services across NYSE, ASX, and Crypto.

Douugh will launch its financial app in FY22, replacing its current app – ‘Goodments by Douugh’.

Using Openmarkets’ market-leading APIs, Douugh gains access to a single integrated tech stack with APIs and OMG’s customer support.

OMG will be responsible for cleaning, settlement services, and execution to DOU’s Aussie customers for single stock ASX trading, which will be into DOU’s ‘Stocks Jar’ feature.
