RTFX Ltd was established in March 2009, following the decision taken by Realtime Forex SA to split its activities in two entities, subsequent to modifications to Switzerland’s banking regulations. RTFX Ltd holds a broker/dealer license and is regulated by the Malta Financial Services Authority since April 2009.
Realtime Forex SA was established in January 2000 by the partners of Gay, Glauser & Cie, a Swiss based company established in Switzerland in 1995. Realtime Forex SA was Switzerland’s first online market maker for foreign exchange trading. Located in Geneva, Realtime Forex SA provided 24-hour online trading facilities to foreign exchange trading investors for nine years.
Today, RTFX Ltd is a financial company operating under European regulations. RTFX Ltd was separated from the technology development entity, which remained Geneva-based and operates under Realtime Financial Technologies SA (formerly Realtime Forex SA).
With its three proprietary trading software platforms developed and maintained in Switzerland, RTFX Trader™ RTFX Web Trader™ and RTFX Mobile™, RTFX Ltd is capable of providing its clients with consistent liquidity and tight, aggressive trading spreads for all trading volumes under any forex market conditions.
Due to its Swiss roots, RTFX Ltd caters to English, French, German and Italian speaking markets; one of the very few companies capable of such an international operation. To date, tens of thousands of traders have used RTFX Ltd’s trading software and clients from over 120 countries use its systems every day to trade foreign exchange.
In October 2009 RTFX obtained an extension of its Category 3 license to introduce an Asset Management Service.
