Tools for Brokers was built as an international company from the start. Over the last 10 years, APAC has been and remains today one of the main focuses for us. While the global economy and strict regulations have led to more or less standard business practices across the globe, there are nevertheless specifics typical to Asian brokerage companies that we have noticed. In today’s article, we are looking at the products that are most requested in APAC countries and see which functionality is of particular interest for our partners.
White Label (WL)
White Label is a popular business model in many booming markets in Asia. This solution allows aspiring brokers to save time and money on the technological aspect of business and focus on their primary goals: attracting traders and increasing profits.
White Label brokers outsource not only the platform maintenance and setup but also the technological equipment of the platform. That optimizes daily operations and adds opportunities for brokers and their traders. So in some sense, White Label is a one-stop shop for brokers that gives them everything they need to kick start their business.
Trade Processor (TP)
Trade Processor is the flagship product of TFB, and Asian markets are no exception. TP offers a wide functionality that benefits our partners, but we have understood that A/B-book risk management is of particular importance. Our partners are utilizing the feature to track and categorize the clients’ trading patterns. That enables brokers to select the best fitting execution mode, e.g. choosing where to aggregate and which LP will be the best. .
TFB Percentage Allocation Management Module (TFB PAMM)
Our partners appreciate the TFB PAMM solution for the social aspect of it. The software enables Investors to review the statistics and performance of Money Managers. This means that Investors are more confident in the platform and are more likely to entrust larger sums of money. This leads to the increased overall profitability of Brokers, more income to successful Money Managers, and happier Investors.
Web API application helps brokers integrate MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 platforms with third-party solutions. Our partners use it for integration with CRMs, back-offices, and other existing software. We see that APAC brokers are often on-the-go and very mobile, so one of their favourite features of Web API is the ability to access the MetaTrader server from anywhere using any device.
Exact Copier and Group Exact Copier
These products are designed to copy trades from Source to Target accounts using various rules. Many of the Asian markets are still relatively new to the trading. With the growing middle and upper classes, more people consider trading to save and grow their capital. Such clients feel more comfortable when there is some guidance or ability to mimic the actions of successful traders. Therefore, Copiers tools act as an entry point for many clients with no trading experience, who later become more confident and move on to other trading products and start trading using their unique expertise.
