Forex and contracts for difference (CFDs) brokerage Blackwell Global has obtained a double license from the Security and Futures Commission (SFC) of Hong Kong to offer securities and futures trading services, according to data from the broker’s website. The license allows the company to offer such contracts to both Hong Kong and international investors.
“We have attained the SFC licences during exciting financial times for the Hong Kong investment scene,” said the brokerage’s director Michael Wu. Following the license approval, Blackwell Global clients can access local and international contracts across multiple asset classes, including global stocks, options, and futures.
Recently, the brokerage launched access to the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock-Connect, and it also provides access to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange and the Shanghai-Hong Kong connect scheme.
“Committed to continually enrich its product and technological offerings, this new addition will expand the portfolio of the Blackwell Global brand internationally, and see the company gain a larger stake in the Hong Kong financial market, with the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Markets being one of the most traded markets in the world,” the broker said in a press release.
In Hong Kong, the broker operates a separate website, www.blackwellglobal.com.hk.
