Trading and information solutions provider Infront has opened two offices in South Africa – one in Johannesburg and the other in Cape Town – adding to the firm’s six existing offices in Europe and the UK.
Infornt says South Africa is widely used by the international investment community as a launch platform to enter the rest of Africa. With well-established trade routes, local experience in African markets and business-ready infrastructure, the country is often the go-to emerging market for European companies.
"We have been working with the South African market since 2009 and have experienced an increase in demand for our modern and flexible market data terminal. Being well established in this market, with a substantial customer base, we have seen the need to open two, local new offices. We see a huge potential for our services and are excited about our plans to break through in this market. Additionally, we are happy to officially welcome two seniors to the team, Renier Linde and Timothy Singh, who are both eager to support our efforts in South Africa," says Kristian Nesbak, CEO and founder of Infront.
"We are thrilled to announce that Infront solutions, on which the majority of Europe has come to rely, is now directly available from Infront for South African finance professionals. We have spent a lot of time and effort on the analysis of this market as well as its consumption of and daily interaction with data. In a similar vein, we are confident in stating that we have a highly- competitive financial terminal for this market. Paying for what you actually use creates real value for our clients," says Renier Linde, managing director of Infront South Africa.
With global market data, analytics and trading services, Infront aims to provide clients with a complete overview of the markets. It also provides investors – both individual and professional – full-depth, real-time data from the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.
As a special introductory offer to the South African market, Infront is offering the Infront terminal free-of-charge until the end of 2016.
