Bao Huynh

Invast Global has appointed Bao Huynh as Director of Marketing, based in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

This is not the first time Mr. Huynh joins the Sydney-based multi-asset prime broker with offices in Tokyo and Hong Kong. He first arrived at the company in 2015 to work in the Marketing division.

For a year and a half, he would strategically plan, develop and execute B2C/B2B marketing campaigns and initiatives to grow the Invast book of business.

He then spent another year and a half at Amalgamated Australian Investment Group as Marketing Manager. There, he oversaw all promotional and lead generation efforts of Ascot Securities, ASR Wealth Advisers, APSEC Funds Management, and Australian Stock Report.

Mr. Huynh joins Invast Global from Morningstar, where he was Marketing Campaigns Manager for three years. His key responsibility there was to manage cross-channel end-to-end B2B campaigns and communications for Morningstar Australasia.

Invast Global has recently launched a new Index CFD product utilizing market data derived from the trading of the highly popular VIX® futures contract offered by Cboe Futures Exchange.

The provider of bespoke Prime Brokerage services offers access to Tier 1 execution, clearing, and custody services across 30 + global exchanges in equities, ETFs, futures, foreign exchange, commodities, and precious metals.

The VIX futures contract is the most frequently traded, exchange-listed volatility futures contract in the world.  The new CFD product is available for trading via API from Invast trading servers as part of a broader Index offering encompassing both data and execution.

A long-time strong proponent of multi-asset solutions for brokers, Invast Global continues to focus on innovation with the release of a new VIX futures CFD.

Invast’s creation of a new volatility-based CFD addresses broker demand for tradeable products that provide exposure to the Cboe Volatility (VIX) Index.

Invast Global has also launched the USD index and Canadian index CFDs as part of its suite of Index and Commodity CFDs. These are available via API from Invast Global’s trading servers in NY4, LD4, and TY3.

“These additional products represent the latest update in our plans to offer the most comprehensive suite of cash index and commodity products available”, said James Alexander, Chief Commercial Officer of Invast Global, at the time.

“Our new product rollout is largely driven by demand from our client base and we will always look to respond to this demand with the strongest possible institutional quality API pricing and execution for any new product we bring to market.

There are no additional monthly market data fees associated with the two new Index CFDs.
