LONDON, October 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
England and Premier League footballer, Ryan Bertrand, has joined forces with two other entrepreneurs to launch an innovative fin tech brokerage called Silicon Markets. The brokerage will be based in the City of London and offers opportunities to trade FX, indices and commodities.
The founders of Silicon Markets believe they have spotted a gap in the market to revolutionise the retail brokerage space by offering free Artificial Intelligence and machine learning software to traders, helping them to make more informed decisions using new trading techniques. Specific details of the company's new software products will be announced on 3rd November 2015 at Finance Magnates London Summit.
In addition to being the first retail broker to offer computational software and technology to clients, Silicon Markets also has a fresh approach to marketing, using Ryan Bertrand's extensive network of fans, celebrities and sports stars to attract new traders to the market. They will capitalise on his high profile in order to create significant marketing opportunities which will help to establish and grow the Silicon Markets brand.
The new brokerage will initially focus on growing a strong UK client base before extending across Europe and Asia. Its long-term goal is to become a ground-breaking global organisation.
Partnership with One Financial Markets
Silicon Markets is an Appointed Representative of the award-winning online broker One Financial Markets which is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
According to Andrew Henderson, Director at One Financial Markets, "As soon as we met the Silicon Markets team we saw the huge potential they have in our industry. Their ideas are new and show great initiative. We did not hesitate in offering them Appointed Representative status and are looking forward to helping them realise their potential."
The founders of Silicon Markets are innovative, young and energetic. In addition to Ryan Bertrand - who has invested in the financial markets since the age of 18, co-founders include Louis Bell, who has a wealth of institutional trading experience and Matthew Kirkham, a financial technology specialist.
Ryan Bertrand comments, "Silicon Markets has a revolutionary new business strategy based on ground-breaking technology and marketed via celebrities and sports stars. I am really excited about our potential to transform the retail trading industry and am proud of the synergies we are developing between finance and football; and how we are able to introduce the financial markets to an entirely new audience."
Louis Bell adds, "Artificial intelligence and machine learning is increasingly popular in the institutional space and we are looking forward to bringing such effective new trading techniques to a retail audience for the first time. Silicon Markets has spotted an opportunity to do things differently whilst also widening the overall pool of retail traders. We hope to attract existing traders as well as those who wish to start trading for the first time."
Silicon Markets' Software
The main focus of the company is the provision of computational software and technology to a market that has long been without it. The founders of Silicon Markets see themselves as a new and thriving network which enables the user experience to be optimised and enhanced over time as participants get used to interacting with the software.
Over time, based upon user-generated requests, new tools, news, information and additional features will be added that will enhance the participation further; all completely free of charge.
