RTFX is a proud to announce its official sponsorship of the 6th Finance Malta Financial Services Annual Conference, which will be held on 26th April 2013 at the Corinthia San Gorg Hotel in St. Julians.
In February 2000, RTFX Ltd (formerly Realtime Forex SA) launched its online trading service. We are proud to have been one of the first companies to offer online foreign exchange trading over the Internet and the first online service provider in Switzerland.
We have seen considerable growth and development of the market over the years: greater market and price transparency, filtering and improvement in the level of competition and more investors interested in the fast growing forex market.
Between April 2007 and April 2010, global average daily transactions increased from $3.3 trillion to $4 trillion. This increase was driven by a 48% growth in spot transactions which represent 37% of the entire forex market turnover.
Prior to the launch of its online trading service, telephone trading was still the norm, spread discrepancies were enormous and FX was completely unknown to the public.
Today, through the Internet, investors have instantaneous access to real time prices and market makers are no longer able to price discriminate. There is no longer any need for brokers who charge commissions. Market makers, who mark up prices or try to read clients, are finding that their services are no longer adequate. Investors now demand a transparent and high level of service.
Investors want trading tools and information available at their fingertips. Competitors that are using off-the-shelf software are finding they cannot keep up with investor requirements. More and more, investors are shopping around for the best prices and the best service. In a very short time frame, the market has developed into a much more competitive environment.
In order expand and grow its competitive environment, the board and management of Realtime Forex SA decided to become regulated within Europe and thus, applied for a European license in September 2008. After nine years of experience in the retail business operating from within Switzerland, Realtime Forex SA decided to establish itself in Europe and specifically in Malta.
Since April 2009, RTFX Ltd has always committed itself to providing a world class service to all its customers, without discriminating between big or small. We have never charged commissions and have always quoted real time market prices.
In March 2010, RTFX Ltd launched an Asset Management service, catering for those customers and individuals alike who may not have sufficient time to trade independently. We are proud of this service and delighted by the performance we have delivered to our customers.
