Spectrum markets welcomes Directa: A partnership that redefines retail trading in Europe

By Christophe Grosset, Spectrum Markets’ European Sales Director

Spectrum Markets recently made an announcement, revealing its partnership with Directa, the retail-focused online broker from Italy. This collaboration marks an important milestone for Spectrum as it furthers our mission to enhance the retail trading experience for investors for several reasons.

Directa: The 5th Broker to Join Spectrum Markets

Directa is now the fifth broker to connect with Spectrum Markets. From a technical perspective, this addition might not seem drastically different, but the excitement surrounding this partnership arises from the alignment of our core philosophies. Directa, a well-established institution, has consistently focused on meeting the needs of retail investors since its inception. The emphasis on self-driven investors, their decision to use proprietary-developed technology, their preference for easy access, modern and flexible trading features, and a tailored product offering – along with the will to submit every expansion to these guiding principles –mirrors our own philosophy at Spectrum Markets.

The Significance of 24/5 Access

Directa’s offering of 24/5 access for their clients holds immense importance. This feature substantially enhances investors’ flexibility when it comes to executing their trades. While some may view this as a luxury feature, I argue that convenience in trading is not a luxury but a necessity. Any constraint on a retail investor’s flexibility of execution is a disadvantage. With 24/5 access, investors can enjoy the freedom to trade late at night. However, this flexibility offers the opportunity to trade against buying and selling orders in other time zones, effectively opening up new markets, the chance to act on a much stronger news flow and to significantly extend your hedging options.

Ensuring 24/5 access is a challenge not just from a technical standpoint but also in terms of operational support. We must operate three shifts globally to provide immediate and permanent client support, as well as seamless trading monitoring and surveillance.

Why Directa’s Clients Will Welcome Spectrum Markets

Directa’s clients can now access Spectrum Markets, a multilateral trading facility that is truly European, regulated, and fully transparent. Spectrum Markets is designed with the specific needs of retail investors in mind, which makes us significantly different to existing trading venues and exchanges. . For example, our simple and transparent order book and ample liquidity provide a favourable environment for trading leveraged products with knock-out barriers. This liquidity isn’t just driven by market maker arrangements but also by the buying and selling interest of retail investors.

Both Spectrum Markets and Directa share the belief that new asset classes and instrument types should be offered to retail investors in an orderly manner. We aim to ensure high standards and prevent products from distracting or confusing retail investors.

In Italy, where Directa is based, the stock exchanges have complex listing rules and sluggish procedures. However, the sophistication of retail investors has increased significantly. We now see a higher level of self-determination, a better understanding of the functioning of markets, and higher levels of financial education. As a result, retail investors are demanding trading features today that were once reserved for professional investors, and this is the gap our partnership with Directa seeks to fill.

What This Partnership Means for Spectrum Markets

For Spectrum Markets, this partnership is a significant milestone in our growth journey. It is a testament to our strategic vision, as Directa is a highly reputable partner, and Italy, being the third-largest economy in Europe, is one of our core markets. With Directa’s extensive reach in Italy and its loyal and active retail client base, we anticipate a substantial boost in turbo warrant order flow.

Beyond commercial progress, we believe this collaboration will capture the broader market’s attention. Our joint strategy is aligned with responding to the needs of final investors, a pivotal aspect of our growth strategy at Spectrum Markets.

In conclusion, the partnership between Spectrum Markets and Directa signifies a step forward in reshaping retail trading in Europe. By joining forces, we are committed to providing retail investors with the tools and opportunities they need to thrive in today’s dynamic and increasingly sophisticated financial landscape.
