In addition to investing in technology, Saxo Bank has further strengthened its offering by increasing the number of asset classes available for clients to trade, most notably with the addition of equity options earlier this year. Saxo’s multi-asset trading platform is uniquely placed to aggregate liquidity pools for individual and institutional clients looking to trade with a single platform.
