anyption, one of the not so many regulated binary options brokers, announced it has obtained from the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) an expansion to its operational license and is planning to start offering additional financial services.

The extended MiFID Market Maker license of anyoption’s parent company Ouroboros Derivatives Trading Ltd includes Portfolio Management and Investment Advice.

“We are proud to extend our Market Makers licence into the areas of Portfolio Management and Investment Advice,” said the CEO of anyoption, Shy Datika, quoted by the site Finance Magnates. “anyoption has always put regulation first and we see this extension as an opportunity to introduce to our large and loyal customer base new range of products that are different the traditional Binary Options.”

anyoption is a binary options trading platform launched in 2008 and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC). Recently it also obtained a license from South Africa’s Financial Services Board (FSB). It offers trading in currencies, indices, commodities and stocks.

Recently it became clear that anyoption is opening a research and development office in Bulgaria and another one in Cyprus.

In March anyoption was fined EUR 235 000 by the CySEC for non-compliance.
