VT Markets obtains license to operate in the UK
VT Markets has recently launched FX trading in the UK after five years of providing advanced technical support in the retail currency exchange markets.
The FX and CFD broker, which features a valid ECN account with mobile trading and payments, raw spreads, and a robust client portal, boasts more than 10,000 trader clients in the UK.
The broker is thus entering the UK FCA space after acquiring a license from the Financial Conduct Authority, the country’s financial watchdog. The brand will operate with the FCA license granted to Vantage Global Prime.
The Sydney-based multi asset broker has also recently set up camp in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to offer users access to more than 300 assets via MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5.
VT Markets takes pricing and liquidity from 7 liquidity providers which allow the broker to offer the best possible pricing in such a competitive market.
