ICU LAUNCHES THE FIRST UKRAINIAN REAL-TIME GOVERNMENT BOND TRADING PLATFORM

ICU group, the leading independent asset management and investment advisory firm specialising in the emerging markets of Central and Eastern Europe, today announced the launch of ICU Trade platform, a comprehensive and real-time trading platform that allows local private investors to buy and sell Ukrainian government bonds online with instant guaranteed payments.

 

The platform is the first of its kind to be offered in Ukraine that enables you to trade bonds seamlessly online and significantly simplifies the process of investing in government bonds. The platform consists of two main elements: online.icu web-portal and ICU Trade trading system.

 

"There is no need to spend a lot of time surfing the Internet for information on Ukrainian government bonds any more. Everything you need is in one place - online.icu, which is also the entry point to our trading system. We provide investors with direct access to online quotes. They see the real market yields and can buy or sell chosen securities in a few clicks,” said Yevgeniya Gryshchenko, head of brokerage services department at ICU.

 

The company notes that the system is intuitive and easy to use, but at the same time provides a wide range of features, including:

 

  • viewing detailed information on selected bonds;
  • buying and selling government bonds;
  • monitoring investment account online 24/7;
  • receiving individual deals;
  • controlling the movement of funds and account balances;
  • withdrawing funds to your bank account.

 

"The advantages of our system include real-time trading, ability to both buy and sell securities at any time, as well as one-click withdrawal of the funds to your bank account. We offer free securities account service and some of the lowest commissions on the market. After the initial registration with the broker, all transactions in ICU Trade can be carried out with an electronic signature using SMS,” added Ms. Gryshchenko.

 

The online.icu website and trading system are fully optimized for mobile devices. ICU Trade is currently the only platform adapted for trading Ukrainian government bonds adapted for smartphones and tablets. ICU plans to launch mobile applications for iOS and Android, which will further increase its accessibility. The company also promises to constantly improve the trading system, adding new convenient services for investors.
