Alpari, a major global broker with most significant presence in Russia, announced it has launched a news channel on the messenger service Telegram.
According to the broker statement, the channel will offer updates, news and information on the latest services of Alpari.
Telegram is a cloud-based application that enables users to communicate in real time via text, video and images. It is available on iOS, Android and Windows devices, as well as desktops with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. The application also has a web-based version.
Alpari is by far not the first forex broker to establish a presence in Telegram. The trend started last year with various brokers launching different types of services. FxPro and Gerchik&Co., for instance, also started a news, analysis and updates channel, while FreshForex and Finam launched trading bots. The offshore forex broker FBS offers customer service support.
Alpari has offices in Russia, Belize, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, two offices in Mauritius, and the UAE. The group consists of Alpari-Broker (Russia), Alpari Ltd. (Saint Vincent and the Grenadines), Alpari International Ltd. (Mauritius), Alpari Ltd. (Belize), and Alpari Forex (Russia).
The broker is licensed by the financial markets authorities of Belize, United Arab Emirates and Belarus. In the end of last year Alpari also got a license from the Bank of Russia.
Recently the broker joined Russia’s Association of Forex Dealers (AFD), a self-regulatory organization (SRO), as a member.
