Saxo Bank’s emphasis on continual learning: Company’s head office in Hellerup, Denmark is adorned with several libraries

The latest example of this dynamic is today’s strategic partnership which has come to fruition between Danish technology-led electronic trading company Saxo Bank and one of North America’s most prominent electronic exchange technology providers and institutional market places, CME Group Inc (NASDAQ:CME).

According to Saxo Bank, this new agreement is designed to enhance the educational resource service provided by the company.

The partnership will take the form of a content-sharing agreement which has been signed today, rendering CME Group’s educational materials available to Saxo Bank’s global client base.

CME Group’s Futures Institute which provides futures markets education, trading simulation and market research has comprehensively offered education aimed at providing market participants with the knowledge and resources to trade futures for quite some time and to ensure investors understand both the benefits and risks of futures, and options on futures, CME Group provides education on a range of basic to advanced strategies.

Patrice Henault, Head of Futures and Listed Options at Saxo Bank, today made a commercial statement on the alliance:

“Saxo Bank has a proud history in investor education. We want our clients to be able to trade to the best of their abilities and therefore place great importance on broadening knowledge across a range of financial instruments. This partnership with CME Group will further enhance our educational offering.”

Mark Omens, Executive Director and Head of Retail Sales at CME Group added to this:

“Saxo Bank’s deep network of clients provides CME Group with a great opportunity to actively engage with global traders of all types, giving them a solid foundation on the futures markets. The Futures Institute is focused on taking individuals that are interested in trading in the futures markets and providing them with the proper knowledge and resources to enhance their skills. Teaming up with Saxo Bank helps us achieve that goal.”
