GTN unveils global fractional trading engine for equities and fixed income, unlocking premium assets for retail investors
DUBAI, Oct 23, 2023 | GTN, a global fintech redefining investing and trading for all, is pleased to announce the launch of its fractional trading engine for equities and fixed income globally, realising its commitment to a world where anyone can invest in anything, anytime.
Fractional trading democratises investing and has gained popularity in recent years, giving retail investors access to high-value stocks that otherwise, as a whole, would be unaffordable. With fractional trading, retail investors can enhance their portfolio diversification by allocating investments across a broader range of stocks and efficiently deploying small cash balances to optimise potential returns. GTN clients can now make their services more attractive to their existing clientele and attract new clients by offering fractional on equities, ETFs and fixed income.
“For years, GTN has been at the forefront of introducing innovative solutions in the financial industry. We were one of the first firms outside the US to offer fractional trading on US stocks when it first became available. Now, expanding fractional trading capability across global stocks and ETFs in the 80+ markets we provide access to is aligned with our clients’ needs for greater access to investment opportunities,” said Manjula Jayasinghe, Group CEO of GTN. “The inclusion of fractionalised fixed income represents an even greater value proposition, removing historical barriers that had excluded retail investors from this asset class. This new capability fosters financial inclusion and brings us closer to our mission of making trading and investing accessible to a broader spectrum of people.”
The fractional trading engine will be accessible through GTN Trade, GTN’s co-branded global trading platform, and its API framework; it will be available to partners, brokers, banks, wealth managers and fintechs.
