Digital trading platform OpenMarkets Australia has launched a new platform for financial advisers and the self-directed investor called OpenMarkets Equix, the first in a series of enhancements planned by the firm.
Available via web and mobile on Apple and Android, it will offer low-cost online tools for trading in Australian equities.
Clients will be able to trade equities and exchange-traded products, analyse portfolio performance, access charts and downloads reports and contract notes.
OpenMarkets chief executive, Andrea Marani, said the decision to launch the platform came about as it wanted to offer clients’ customisable trading tools.
“The decision to develop a new trading platform came after identifying the need to give clients trading tools that could be customised and integrated into OpenMarkets broader platform ecosystem, such as access to global markets and complementary third-party tools.
“The mobile app really enhances the trading experience by giving our clients on-the-go access to what is happening in the markets. It is also a significant step in delivery and execution of our digital strategy that has mobility as a key focus.”
The service was developed in partnership with trading technology company Quant Edge Pty which Marani said was “extremely responsive to requests and extremely fast at adding new features” which would benefit clients.
