Gain Capital (NYSE:GCAP), which in May returned to the second position among the US forex brokers in terms of client deposits, announced it has refreshed its global forex trading brand Forex.com. It includes a new logo and an updated overall visual identity.
According to the company statement, the new look is only the first of several service enhancements Gain Capital has planned for the near future. Among them would be a suite of new trading platforms, expanded selection of global markets and unique decision support tools.
Currently the new brand identity is only available on the Canadian site of the broker www.forex.com/en-ca, but the updates will be rolled out globally throughout the rest of 2016.
Besides the new look, the freshened-up Forex.com site offers enhanced market research and commentary and expanded educational materials for traders of all experience levels.
“FOREX.com is a leading destination for traders around the world who wish to trade the global currency markets,” said Glenn Stevens, CEO of GAIN Capital. “Our brand and website refresh marks the beginning of a series of exciting and innovative enhancements to our products and services and reflects our commitment to empower each and every one of our traders with tools to help make effective investment and trading decisions.”
“The new FOREX.com visual identity and web experience is bold and modern, reflecting our leadership position as a global FX brand supporting traders from over 180 countries,” commented Samantha Roady, President of Retail at Gain Capital.
Last week Gain Capital reported that in May its client deposit rose 3.6% from April and ranked second among the US forex brokers. June, however, seems to be rather disastrous in terms of retail over-the-counter (OTC) average daily volume, with a 43.7% slump on an annual basis.
Gain Capital Group was established in 2003 and went public on the NYSE in 2010. The company serves retail and institutional clients under the trading brands Forex.com, City Index, GTX, and Gain Capital. It is active in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific regions. The broker offers trading in forex, commodities, and global equities. Its largest retail forex broker, Forex.com, also offers white label solutions for other forex brokers, operating throughout the world.
