CMC Markets

The Australian Business Award for Business Innovation recognises organisations that execute business initiatives which demonstrate innovative solutions for new and existing business needs.

CMC Markets Stockbroking is a subsidiary of CMC Markets PLC, a global financial services and currency specialist business, offering retail investors trading opportunities across CFDS, foreign exchange (FX) and stockbroking services. The business goal of CMC Markets is to constantly provide the most superior and unrivalled trading experience for their clients.

The successful build and integration of Pro platform’s charting package is a stand-out demonstration of the product development team’s collaboration capability. The innovative Pro platform has been built to offer Australia’s 51,000 frequent traders with best value pricing, platform-integrated institutional tools and professional charting – underpinned by their world class education offering. Lauded by their clients and the wider trader community alike, Pro platform’s innovative use of technology has taken the Australian retail share trading to the next level and positioned their industry as one of the world’s most advanced. Building Australia’s first HTML5-based online share trading Pro platform is also an effective demonstration of how CMC Markets’ product development team employed the scrum management methodology.

The positive impact of the Pro platform on Australian frequent traders is evident in feedback and support from various industry stakeholders and the trader community. The Pro platform build has enabled CMC Markets to identify a number of technological advancements and introduce them to their Next Generation Platform for the benefit of their CFD & FX traders. The new assets created for stockbroking’s Pro platform delivered additional value and benefit CMC Markets customers around the world.

CMC Markets is continuing on its ongoing quest for innovation, and to evolve their business model in line with changes in the trading and investment environment to deliver better products and services. CMC is being recognised for a Business Innovation Award in the Australian Business Awards 2016.
