“We’re proud of how far we’ve come as a brokerage, and of all the outstanding results we’ve achieved this year. Our customer-centric approach is testament to how much we recognise and value our clients who have unreservedly been an integral part of our long-term success.”

VT Markets has experienced explosive growth in the total number of active traders and total volume of trade in 2022, the global multi-asset broker announced.

The broker explains the extraordinary performance in 2022 was driven by an emphasis on innovation, product diversification, and
expansion into newer markets.

For example, the brokerage ventured beyond traditional trading products, and offered more diverse instruments such as indices, bonds, and ETFs.

VT Markets reports: 140% more active traders, 125% more volumes in 2022

VT Markets has reported that the total number of active traders on VT Markets surged by 140%, while the total trading volume saw a 125% increase.

Chris Nelson-Smith, Director at VT Markets, said, “We’re proud of how far we’ve come as a brokerage, and of all the outstanding results we’ve achieved this year. Our customer-centric approach is testament to how much we recognise and value our clients who have unreservedly been an integral part of our long-term success. We are truly grateful for their support, and we promise to continue providing reliable products and personalised services to cater to their needs.”

“We are committed to continuing to develop our offerings to keep up with the changing markets and industry trends so that we can continue to be industry leaders. We look forward to emulating the successes we’ve achieved so far, and would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all of our clients for their continued trust in VT Markets.

Share CFDs, indices, bonds, and ETFs

In November, VT Markets added a selection of 7 bond CFDs to further enable traders to expand their portfolios and gain exposure to some of the most exciting markets in the world at a time where inflation and interest rates become volatility drivers in all markets, including fixed income.

The global multi-asset broker’s bond CFD offering features bonds from the United States and the United Kingdom, among others, including the US 10-year Treasury Bond Futures, UK Long Gilt Futures and Euro-Bund Futures.

VT Markets has recently added over 500 US, UK, and EU share CFDs (contract for differences) to its multi asset trading offering, reaching the milestone number of 1,000 tradeable instruments available on the platform.

The broker takes pricing and liquidity from 7 liquidity providers which allows the broker to offer the best possible pricing in such a competitive market. Sourcing liquidity from seven LPs has dramatically improved pricing, execution, spreads, and trading conditions for its traders.

A few months ago, VT Markets added MetaTrader 5 to its roster of available trading platforms next to MetaTrader 4 and WebTrader. The MT5 offering followed the launch of the broker’s new branding and client portal as the firm decided to go multi-asset. MetaTrader 5 helps broaden the range of products and solutions and VT Markets aimed to address the growing client demand for share CFDs.

VT Markets launched exclusive loyalty program

In the last quarter of the year, VT Markets also launched their exclusive loyalty program, VT Markets ClubBleu. This rewarding initiative was put in place as recognition for its clients who have played a key role in contributing to the growth of the company.

The Sydney headquartered brokerage firm is authorised and regulated by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) and holds an Australian Financial Service Licence (No.516246).

The group operating the VT Markets brand is spread across 160 countries, authorised and registered in various other jurisdictions, including South Africa through FSCA-regulated VT Global South Africa (Pty) Ltd, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines through SVGFSA-regulated VT Markets LLC.
