Trading and wealth management fintech Openmarkets has partnered with Asia-Pacific investment platform Syfe to offer its Australian investors access to ASX equities.

This solution allows Syfe to offer its customers 2,000+ ASX equities at competitive brokerage rates, and give investors the ability to buy the top 1,000 ASX equities with a one unit minimum for their first and ongoing buys.

The solution has now been deployed across the Syfe platform and trading of ASX equities has commenced.

Dan Jowett, CEO Openmarkets said it is proud to provide Syfe with an innovative ASX equities solution for its investors.               

“Openmarkets is delighted to provide Syfe with a best-in-class ASX equities solution that meets our client’s commercial objectives and has direct cost benefits for its Australian investors.
