In 2010, the acquisition of Advanced Currency Markets AG (ACM) one of the country’s largest currency traders allowed us to consolidate our position as a leader in online trading and helped us to rapidly expand our Forex dealing. A further step to democratising trading was the launch of a new service the same year: ePrivate Banking, electronic asset management for discerning clients who were looking for a professional yet easy to use tool to personally manage their portfolio.
In September 2013, we secured a place in the international market by acquiring MIG Bank, a major Forex broker. This acquisition propelled Swissquote into the world’s top ten online currency trading service providers.
The same year, Swissquote Ltd was established in London, incorporating elements of MIG Bank, to bring Forex online services to all markets in the European Union.
During the last years, we have added more significant services to our broad offer: online mortgages in collaboration with BLKB, Swiss DOTS, the trading platform for derivative products in collaboration with UBS, Goldman Sachs, Commerzbank, Vontobel and Deutsche Bank as well as our partnership with PostFinance in 2014. In 2015Themes Trading, a new service in the Fintech environment, provides our customers with insights to invest in comprehensible and relatable trends.
Digital trading is part of our DNA and we will continue to be curious, creative and inventive in order to facilitate and democratise the world of finance for our clients.
