Squared Financial launches Visa card in effort to be seen as more than a broker

Rick Steves

“We do not only want to be their choice for asset, forex, and crypto trading but also their go-to for all the financial services they might need.”

Squared Financial Group has become one of the few brokerage firms to offer its clients a card after having launched its branded Visa card.

Released in partnership with CSC, a globally regulated electronic money institution, 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.

“Meeting clients’ expectations and needs is no longer enough”

Husam Al Kurdi, CEO at Squared Financial Group, said: “Meeting clients’ expectations and needs is no longer enough; we are empowering them. We are growing geographically and offering investors as many assets and financial products as they want with competitive commissions as well as exceptionally quick execution on their trades. While we endeavor to help them overcome the challenges they face throughout their trading journey, we are maximizing our payment methods for them to seamlessly manage their finances all in one place, and our Squared Visa card is just one sign of great things to come.”

Philippe Ghanem, Founder of Squared Financial Group, commented: “Innovation and technology underscore the need to build a safe and secure business environment for investors, and we have set our sights on becoming a one-stop shop for investors and traders around the world. We aim at changing the way people perceive a broker. We do not only want to be their choice for asset, forex, and crypto trading but also their go-to for all the financial services they might need.”

Squared WebTrader and further expansion

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. The 15-year old broker currently offers access to more than 10,000 trading products.

Squared Financial offers iQbyQi’s analytics to users

In March, the company became the first broker to offer its customers access to iQbyQi’s analytics, backed by artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science. Quant’s newest product is empowering retail traders in Europe and the Middle East with institutional-grade analytics.

This collaboration provides the Cyprus-headquartered FX broker’s traders with access to iQbyQi daily insights into the macro-forces driving asset prices to make better trading decisions. The integration also provides clients with expert views to help them confirm their own views of potential risk/reward opportunities in the financial markets.
