VT Markets obtains license to operate in UK
VT Markets recently launched currency trading in the UK after five years of advanced technical support in the retail forex markets.
The FX and CFD broker, which has a valid ECN account with mobile transactions and payments, raw spreads and a robust client portal, has over 10,000 trading clients in the UK.
The broker thus enters the UK FCA space after having acquired a license from the Financial Conduct Authority, the country’s financial supervisory authority. The brand will operate under the FCA license granted to Vantage Global Prime.
The Sydney-based multi-asset broker also recently set up a camp in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to offer users access to over 300 assets through MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5.
VT Markets takes prices and liquidity from 7 liquidity providers, which allows the broker to offer the best possible prices in such a competitive market.
