ThinkMarkets is an industry leader with a global presence — with headquarters in London and Melbourne as well as hubs in the AsiaPacific, Middle East & North Africa, Europe and South America. As the winner of the Investment and Wealth Management Awards 2017 – UK, we caught up with the firm’s founders, Nauman & Faizan Anees to find out more about the firm’s valuable offerings and the vital role of mobile technology in their work.

ThinkMarkets is authorised and regulated by the FCA and fully registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission. They offer brokerage services allowing traders to execute trades across a broad range of financial derivatives, including; FX, stock indices, metals and commodities. In addition, they are acquiring more markets & products continuously to increase their offering according to the demands of their client base. Markets coming up for them include; equities, bonds, grey markets and 24-hour pricing.
Looking at the financial services industry in more general terms, Nauman believes that this is a highly competitive sector, as there are a significant number of CFD providers and new players are constantly entering the market. There is a stigma of competitive pricing and tight spreads, however ThinkMarkets tries to go beyond this by creatively developing; new trading tools, platforms, markets, and adding technological enhancements, and the firm is always on the lookout for innovative partnerships.

Nauman continues to share his thoughts on the firm’s work and his reflections on winning the Investment and Wealth Management Awards 2017 – UK accolade.

“Our global reach and service-offering is broad with over 150 staff, across four continents in over 10 countries, yet we are not inhibited by rigid internal processes that dampen the personal touch we have with our customers. On the staffing-front, we have a Chief Market Analyst who provides market analysis for CNBC, Bloomberg, Sky News, BBC, Reuters, the Daily Mail and The Times.

“We are a technology focused organisation with significant investment into platforms and mobile technology, ‘Mobile First’ is part of our wider mobile strategy for 2017/2018 with a series of exciting developments in the world of mobile trading to keep an eye out for.
“It’s an honour to be selected for the Investment and Wealth Management Awards 2017 – UK, indeed recognition of our dedication to re-investment into our staff, technology and customer services means a lot to us. Traders have been using mobile for some time now to view pricing, news and charts, however when it comes to executing trades, particularly in high-latency regions that are using legacy 2G and 3G networks, traders lack confidence. This plays a very important part in the work we do.”

ThinkTrader Mobile As a leading financial services provider of forex, CFDs and financial spread betting, ThinkMarkets has enhanced its ThinkTrader mobile trading app through the implementation of Neumob’s SDK, an app acceleration framework that will significantly reduce latency for global forex and CFD traders. Nauman then goes on to explain more about this mobile app and the impact it will have.

“ThinkMarkets’ mobile app users will see a drastic change in the performance of the platform. Traders will be able to access the numerous functionalities on ThinkTrader, from reviewing charts & livemarket-pricing, placing orders and executing trades,
