Saxo launches new trading platform for active traders and institutional clients in Hong Kong

Saxo, the leading Fintech specialist focused on multi-asset trading and investment, continues to shape the future of trading with the launch of SaxoTraderPRO, a new user-friendly professional grade trading platform.

Today in Hong Kong, Saxo launches SaxoTraderPRO, a new trading platform for active traders and institutional clients offering a unique combination of a feature-rich trading platform and ease of use.

Available free for Saxo clients, SaxoTraderPRO is an advanced multi-screen trading solution offering a fully customisable workspace for both Windows and Mac.

Christian Hammer, Head of Platforms, Saxo Bank, said, “We are very proud to introduce this sophisticated trading tool to active retail traders and institutional clients, as we know they demand unparalleled access to global capital markets. They also want a high level of control through advanced trading tools, fast and reliable execution and extensive customisation options to fit their individual trading needs.”

Asian investors are savvy and want control managing their local and global investments, and there is a strong demand for an advanced trading platform to help active traders achieve their objectives.

“To ensure their needs are met, we placed our clients at the centre of the development process, soliciting constant feedback on early prototypes and A/B testing to support in-lab usability studies. A lot of unique features of SaxoTraderPRO were developed in this manner based on specific feedback from our beta users,” Hammer added.

As a leading facilitator in global capital markets, Saxo allows private and institutional clients to trade more than 35,000 financial instruments across asset classes. Clients can trade ETFs, Stocks, Bonds, CFDs, Fx, Futures and Options that are cross margined from a single account.

Kim Fournais, Founder and CEO, Saxo Bank, said, “We were a Fintech before the term was created and the core of Saxo Bank has always been our multi asset trading technology and trading platforms. We strive to democratize trading and investment, essentially providing traders and investors with the same professional tools and market access as fund managers and large financial institutions.

I am proud that we yet again deliver on our vision with the launch of SaxoTraderPRO. Based on our scalable business model and efficient technology, SaxoTraderPRO offers intuitive and free access to tools and functionality that has previously been the preserve of a select few and carrying hefty fees.”

SaxoTraderPRO’s Asia launch this week in Hong Kong follows its successful launch in the UK and Denmark. “Asia is a strategically important region for us, and we constantly strive to improve our product offering to service traders and investors in Asia as well as partnerships where we deliver Banking-as-a-Service to banks, brokers and Fintechs. We recently moved to larger offices in Hong Kong and appointed Vivienne Yu as CEO of Greater China to lead Saxo Capital Markets’ retail and wholesale business growth in the Greater China area,” Fournais added.

Catering to active retail traders and institutional clients, SaxoTraderPRO will replace the current SaxoTrader platform, while SaxoTraderGO continues to cater to a wider range of retail traders and investors. SaxoTraderPRO is available to download free at
