Saxo Wins Shares Award for Best Online Futures and Options Provider
Leading online multi-asset trading specialist wins award for third year in a row.
Saxo Bank, the online multi-asset trading and investment specialist, today announces that it has won Best Online Futures & Options Provider in the Shares Magazine Awards for the third year in a row.
The awards which are independently voted for by Shares Magazine's readers recognise those financial services companies which continue to develop and invest in their retail offerings to the benefit of their clients.
Saxo’s win is testament to the heavy investment in its futures and options offering over the past few years, with this year being no exception. Earlier this year, Saxo launched stock options trading on its platform for both retail and institutional clients which enables investors to trade multiple asset classes from a single account and to take advantage of Saxo’s cross product margining offering.
Furthermore, the launch of stock options further widened the breadth of Saxo’s global futures and options offering which now covers Futures Contract, Futures Options, Index Options and Stock Options therefore enabling clients to enhance their individual investment strategies by hedging their exposures and generating extra revenues.
Commenting on the win, Patrice Henault, Head of Futures and Listed Options, Saxo said:
“We are extremely proud to have beaten our closest competitors to win this prestigious award for the third year in a row. The breadth of our futures and options offering is second to none and the wide range of products available to our clients makes them perfectly placed to seize trading opportunities and hedge their exposures as effectively as possible.
“Given that next year we are planning to launch ground breaking analytics for futures and options products, we are confident that our clients will continue to rate our futures and options offering as the best in the business.”
