SquaredFinancial sweetens offering with addition of iQbyQi analytics

abdelaziz Fathi

SquaredFinancial has partnered with Quant Insight (Qi), a provider of analytics and market insights, to help optimize client trading experience with actionable analysis and enhance the firm’s product offering.

The company’s press release states that SquaredFinancial has become 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.

Husam Al Kurdi, CEO for SquaredFinancial comments: “We offer our clients the necessary tools that allow them to deepen their knowledge and react knowing the latest market updates and insights in order to make the right trading decisions. We chose Quant Insight as our strategic partner, because together we can offer unique impartial insights to our retail traders. The technology provided to SquaredFinancial clients by iQbyQi offers astute detail into the macro factors driving the prices of all the assets available to trade on our website.”

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.

Quant caters to customers with $2.5 trillion in AUM

SquaredFinancial clients will be able to access daily newsletters and other features provided from the deal, which cover all asset classes, from FX to single stocks, indices, commodities, crypto, and futures.

Quant Insight is part of a group that has offices in London, New York, Singapore and Limassol. The tech provider claims that its clients have a combined total assets under management of over $2.5 trillion, incorporating Qi’s analytics in their investment process.

“We are proud to partner with our first online broker, SquaredFinancial, who believed in our vision of empowering the retail trader with insights that weren’t available, until today, to every retail trader in Europe and the Middle East. iQbyQi is the antidote to a world where retail traders are swamped by countless subjective opinions leading to nothing but confusion; an antidote based on the power of data science, AI and machine learning for better investment decisions,” said Zahi Younan, CEO for Quant Insight Europe.

“SquaredFinancial is empowering retail investors with special tools that will help them throughout their trading journey. This partnership with Qi goes in line with SquaredFinancial’s expansion in the USA through its new digital asset arm,” added Daniel Skowronski, CEO for SquaredFinancial’s crypto unit.

SquaredFinancial rebranded in 2018 from its previous tradename, ProbusFX, a Cyprus based financial services provider that was founded in 2017 and soon received its license from the Cyprus regulator. The move came as part of their pairing up with sister company, Squared Financial Services Limited, now trading as SquaredPro to form the Squared Financial Group.
