Saxo Bank, the online trading and investment specialist, has launched an updated mobile trading app which is now optimised for use on an iPad. In addition, iPhone users will experience minor upgrades in the form of bug fixes and performance enhancements.
The updated app is distributed through the Apple App Store, and users with the current Saxo app on their iPhone or iPad will automatically receive an update notification. To date more than 60,000 traders have downloaded the app, which now makes up 8% of Saxo Bank’s overall trading volumes.
Henrik Dyrholm Holst, head of product development, said: “We are always striving to provide new and improved products and services to our clients to make trading as simple, quick and enjoyable as possible. I am delighted with the new app, as it further enhances our clients’ trading experience and enables them to get the most from the Saxo Bank platform from their tablet devices.”
The initial rollout of the updated app will be targeting all private clients of Saxo Bank, Saxo Banque (France and Belgium) and Saxo Capital Markets (UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Panama, South Africa). The rollout for white label clients is expected to be completed in October.
