Finalto adds soft commodities spots to offer

FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

B2B multi-asset liquidity and clearing broker Finalto, the financial division of Playtech PLC, a FTSE 250 listed company, has announced today the launch of soft commodity spots for the first time.

The provision of soft commodity contracts marks another step in the expansion of Finalto’s world-leading liquidity offering to facilitate the needs of clients, from small hedge funds and brokers to asset managers and HNW professional individuals and family offices from our global offices in Australia, the UK, Singapore, Cyprus and Israel.

The offering will see the launch of Wheat, Soybean, Corn, and Cocoa spots.

“We’re delighted to expand our commodity offering by expanding in softs. These represent a growing part of what our clients trade and mean we’re staying at the front of the pack in terms of our liquidity offering,” says Matt Maloney, CEO of Finalto B2B. “Added to our Energy and Metals it means we offer a comprehensive suite of commodity products. We look forward to adding more products this year.”

Neil Wilson, Chief Markets Analyst at Finalto says: “Soft commodities produced strong returns for investors last year as the global economy rebounded from the dislocation of the pandemic. Rising inflation pressures have corresponded with higher soft commodity prices and these are set to remain above trend in 2022. 

“Bad weather also affected a number of soft commodity crops last year, whilst La Nina weather risks are rising this year. Uncertain weather conditions and rising demand is seen supporting prices through 2022, albeit Soybeans face downside pressure from rising US production and an expected record crop in South America.”

Finalto provides bespoke tier 1 liquidity on over 800 instruments across FX, bullion, leveraged equity CFD’S, index CFD’S, cryptocurrencies, energies, base metals and soft commodities via one cross-margined account.
