Pepperstone, the online FX and CFD broker, has announced the opening of its DFSA entity in Dubai, strengthening the broker's FinTech offering globally in its 10th year of operation.

Tarik Chebib, Head of Middle East, Pepperstone, said: “We're entering the Middle East market with a truly exceptional offering, providing local investors with cost-effective and technology-driven solutions to master the trade. We have a particularly experienced team here in Dubai and are united with the group's genuine commitment to helping our clients on their trading journeys.”

As one of the largest MetaTrader brokers in the world, Pepperstone's vision is a world of digitally-enabled trading for traders to embrace the challenge and opportunity of global markets, said the firm in a press release.

Disruptive and agile, the financial technology company has more than doubled in size over the past two years as well as expanded and tailored its product offering into hundreds of new markets. The global expansion to DIFC ensures Pepperstone is well-positioned to offer more traders in the Middle East an unparalleled trading experience along with access to more of the world's markets at the best possible price.
