Black Pearl invests in online forex trading service

Black Pearl Capital Partners has invested in Hantec Markets in an effort to help expand its presence in the European retail forex market.

As a member of the Hantec Group, the UK-based Hantec Markets is part of an expansion from China to Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and now to Europe.

"The FX market produces a higher leverage than the standard stock loan agreement which has always made it attractive for banks and larger financial institutions. Today through new currency trading technology services from Hantec Markets, any trader can tap into this market," says Reza Irani-Kermani, chief executive of Black Pearl Capital. "We believe that there are huge opportunities in this online market and therefore we are helping Hantec Markets establish itself as a dominant force in the European online forex space."

The global forex market is larger than the stock and futures markets combined, with an estimated USD4trn traded each day. It operates 24 hours, 5.5 days per week offering traders huge opportunities to benefit from fluctuations in the currency markets.

"BPCP bring a valuable investment into Hantec Markets as they come with a wealth of experience due to their diverse board and international investment strategy. These credentials will assist Hantec Markets in achieving its expansion targets along with continued grown and profitability," says Bashir Nurmohamed, chief executive of Hantec Markets.
