LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HYCM, an FCA-regulated global leader in online capital markets trading, has confirmed that its Cyprus-based entity HYCM Europe is licenced and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC). The status is now reflected on the company website.
CySEC is Cyprus’s financial regulator which provides a framework within which the country’s financial services companies are obliged to operate. As a CySEC regulated broker, HYCM must adhere to the strictest financial standards, including capital adequacy requirements, segregation of client funds and transparency of business operations.
An international broker with a strong presence in key markets in Asia, Middle East and the United Kingdom, HYCM is now set to expand its footprint in the European Union, providing traders with the opportunity to benefit from competitive pricing, high execution speed, high levels of financial security and its renowned customer support.
Commenting on the CySEC licence, Stavros Lambouris, CEO, HYCM Europe said, “The CySEC authorisation marks a milestone in our history as part of our plans to expand our global operations. We now have a gateway to the European market, affirming our commitment to our European clients whilst rubber-stamping the company’s position as a global leader”.
HYCM is part of the Henyep Capital Markets Group, an international conglomerate which recently rebranded its UAE operations within the DIFC to unify its offices worldwide and to reflect the broad range of capital markets products on offer to its retail clients. DFSA-regulated Henyep Investment Bank Limited became known as Henyep Capital Markets (DIFC) Ltd as part of its plans for growth in the region, particularly within the UAE.
The latest move means that European clients can now experience HYCM’s full product offering including forex, commodities and equities as well as positioning the 40 year old Group on a renewed growth path as it seeks to extend its global footprint.
HYCM has also announced the introduction of a new logo to reflect these developments which will replace the existing one and will appear on the Group’s website as well as all its advertising and promotional materials from April 2017.
