OANDA launches new operations in the EU
Online trading company OANDA has announced the launch of new operations in the EU.
This is the result of a strategic change aimed at refocusing OANDA’s retail trading operations in the EU around the ability to offer a much wider range of asset classes.
OANDA’s operations are now run from Warsaw, Poland, under the financial regulatory authority of KNF, the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (PFSA).
Through this launch, OANDA brings an impressive multi-asset offering to EU investors and traders, including thousands of CFDs on FX, indices, commodities, precious metals, cryptos, shares, and a wide variety of non-leveraged equity shares.
Such a broad proposition provides clients with valuable diversification opportunities. In addition, OANDA’s shares offering enables them to build positions in the most popular companies, including US listed equities, across a wide range of sectors. OANDA is also committed to providing the best quality pricing and competitive fees; for example, clients trading from a EUR account can now trade shares of 1,700 individual US companies with 0% commission.
Developed for mobile users, the OANDA TMS app provides extensive access to global markets for stocks and CFDs, empowering traders to easily design and build their own investment portfolio.
Furthermore, OANDA’s technology stack is very flexible, and clients can trade with OANDA via MetaTrader 5, a web-based trading platform with outstanding order processing speed and enhanced analytical capabilities or, in the near future, through the popular TradingView charting platform.
OANDA clients get news, trade ideas, and market analysis at their fingertips; along with advanced tools such as Historical Spreads and Trader Sentiment, which provide valuable insight for better trading decisions.
Marcin Niewiadomski, Head of Europe, commented:
“This is an exciting new chapter and a significant growth opportunity for OANDA in the EU. We want to serve the client in the best way possible, so we made the decision to base our operations in Poland. This was a natural choice, as it will enable us to build the OANDA brand on the strengths of OANDA TMS, which the OANDA group acquired in 2021 for its deep product offering and cutting-edge tech stack.
Now, thanks to our refocused operations, investors and traders in the EU can easily access an extensive multi-asset proposition with the knowledge that they are partnering with a trusted, award-winning, and regulated broker.”
