Squared Financial launched Visa card and Squared WebTrader

In September, Squared Financial Group became one of the few brokerage firms to offer its clients a card after having launched its branded Visa card. Released in partnership with electronic money institution CSC, the card is a new feature in a wide array of products and services offered by the broker which aims to stand out as a one-stop-shop for investors. The card is expected to help Squared Financial empower clients and make it easier for them to manage funds.

The announcement of the Visa card follows the launch of the broker’s proprietary web trading platform, Squared WebTrader, which allows users to access their portfolios and trade anytime, anywhere, on any device.

The emergence of Squared Financial’s one-stop-shop approach aims to fuel the transformation of trading beyond the offering of a wide range of CFDs, stocks, forex, and cryptocurrencies. The company also offers social trading and portfolio management and plans to increase the product offering of assets and instruments, while expanding to new jurisdictions, abiding by regulations and AML directives in force.
