DRS Markets chooses London for CFD trading


DRS Markets, an international trading platform for ‘Contract For Difference’ trading (CFDs), has launched in London with a fully FCA regulated platform.

The company, which offers flexible trading across several channels, evaluated multiple jurisdictions before choosing London so that investors can take confidence in the quality of its platform, processes and services. It will work with investors around the world to trade through London.
DRS Markets offers very competitive commission charges on its trading products, giving investors one of the most cost-effective ways to benefit from CFDs, and a highly attractive margin structure. It currently offers access to over 8,000 US securities for Wall Street investors with the promise of an ultra low-latency, totally customisable platform offering.
Richard Lester (pictured), Director of Strategy and Risk at DRS Markets, says: “Impending Brexit has not put us off our plans to launch into Europe from a London base. We could have gone to another financial centre with the correct EU frameworks in place, but we’re here because we want the best regulated environment in which to thrive. We’ve worked hard to gain FCA authorisation because we believe it’s worth the time and effort. It will stand us in good stead with investors around the world. In our eyes, London is, and always will be, the best financial centre for trading products.”
The DRS Markets platform differentiates itself from other platforms by providing numerous features to grant its clients a competitive edge, such as scanners to help traders find in an instant any stocks that are moving aggressively or trading in volume.
Following a detailed analysis of both what successful traders want and what other providers offer, the experienced DRS Markets team architected a platform optimised for simplicity, efficiency and value. The core trading function is then supported by a growing number of tools to support the trading decisions of investors.
DRS Markets’ competitive pricing and straightforward commission plan puts it amongst the most keenly priced CFD offerings available to investors. Its simplified leverage structure based upon the size of the customer deposit will enable traders to better comprehend their market risk and manage their trading more efficiently.
“What we do is very straightforward. We eliminate as many distractions as possible, leaving our investors free to focus on identifying the investment opportunity. We’re a reliable, easy to use, cost-effective, well-regulated trading platform. We provide expert support together with a high-quality product in a straightforward format that our customers can easily comprehend and employ,” adds Lester.
