About BlackBull Markets

BlackBull Markets was founded with the vision of becoming the world’s leading financial technology and foreign exchange broker. The co
mpany is considered the first true ECN, no dealing desk brokerage. It specialises in forex, fintech solutions, commodities, CFDs and fibre optic communications, serving a range of clients all over the world.

The company was initially founded in Auckland, New Zealand in 2014 after its management team decided to get involved in the foreign exchange retail sector. Prior to this, the company had a background in institutional forex trading and boasted over 10 years of experience in the field.

Its vision was to provide support for retail clients who needed more in the way of institutional-level resources. To achieve this, the team developed multiple fintech solutions, which it would go on to include in BlackBull Markets’ patented proprietary in-house, trade-order aggregation software.

After establishing its advanced technological and pricing offers, the company focused on providing a professional service to its clients, such as personal account management, daily market condition updates and specialised analysis tailored to its clients’ needs.

This is what has allowed BlackBull Markets to provide an overall superior product when compared to its competitors, which by itself is no mean feat. Since its inception, the company’s popularity has skyrocketed worldwide, allowing it to pursue rapid growth in a relatively short space of time.
