About Us

Citypoint Trading Limited was established in London in 2008, based in the heart of the financial district. Our strategic objective is to create a secure and transparent environment for those interested in trading the global financial derivatives markets. Specialising in CFDs and FX we cover a range of markets using sophisticated online trading systems, allowing our clients to get fast and accurate pricing with a solid risk management framework.

We work with institutions, professional clients and experienced retail clients in order to create bespoke solutions so they are able to build and manage their business in a proactive and profitable way. Our board members and management bring years of trading and compliance experience to Citypoint, having gained knowledge from the buy side and sell side of the broking world, this allows us to understand our clients' needs and challenges in an ever changing market.

We pride ourselves on offering a high level of service whilst maintaining the highest level of FCA regulatory standards. Citypoint has always had a very healthy financial standing and by working with one of the world's major auditing firms it allows us to continue to be an ever growing force.

Banks

Banks

Banks are usually complex and sophisticated financial institutions. Whether a private bank, investment bank or retail bank, all follow a strict business model approved by their regulator/central bank. Providing their clients a trading platform to trade real time rolling spot FX and CFDs 24 hours 5 days a week might not be part of their core business model and is not something the bank would necessarily be prepared to host internally therefore many small, medium and even large banks around the word outsource this activity to a third party under an IB agreement or an Omnibus agreement with a possibility to white-label (rebrand) the trading platform if required.

Solutions for Banks

Here at Citypoint we provide a number of solutions for banks; from our Omnibus account to our IB agreement or our Appointed Rep agreement.

We know exactly what is required to setup a long term and successful business relationship with a bank and we can provide a bespoke solution for each bank wanting to contract with us for one of our generous remuneration schemes.
