“Now with our services available, we hope to continue this momentum and empower more financial freedom for people living in Latin America.”

Hantec Markets has opened a new office in Chile as the retail FX and CFD broker further expands across the globe amid recognition by industry peers, including six Global Retail Forex Award wins.

The Santiago de Chile office will serve as the company’s Latin American Hub and will offer leveraged trading on global currencies, bullion, equities and commodities tailored to the region’s consumer base.

Andrew Speakman, LATAM Business Development Director of Hantec Markets, said: “Our expansion into Latin America is an important point of emphasis for Hantec Markets that will boost our global presence.”

Nader Nurmohamed, Chief Operating Officer of Hantec Markets, added: “We wanted to move into one of the largest financial centers in the region, and Chile has experienced a fintech boom in recent years. Now with our services available, we hope to continue this momentum and empower more financial freedom for people living in Latin America.”

Hantec Markets expands while winning Best Forex Trading Experience in LATAM

One month prior to officially moving to the new Chile office, Hantec Markets was named a winner in six Global Retail Forex Awards, including “Best Forex Trading Experience” in Latin America.

“We are a global company with established success in different regions around the world. This is a time of growth at Hantec Markets, and to be honored by awards while scaling our business to larger audiences shows we are capable of continuing to grow while still maintaining the core values that have led to our success”, said Nurmohamed.

The 32-year FX and CFD broker offers leveraged trading on a wide range of instruments across FX, commodities, and equities, through the multi-asset MT4 and MT5 platforms.

Its deep liquidity, bespoke client commission structures, customizable trading conditions and forward-thinking, and adaptive innovation in an ever-changing marketplace are key strengths that enabled the broker’s success within such a competitive industry.

The group provides services across five different continents in seven jurisdictions and is regulated in the United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, Jordan, and Mauritius.

Hantec Markets has recently partnered with Haas F1 Team before the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix to become its official online trading partner amidst the brokerage firm’s global rebrand campaign.
