Online Brokerage demonstrated in The Kingdom

CSFBdirect-eUnion participates in Comdex Jeddah



  April 17th, 2001 Dubai, UAE

  Visitors to the Comdex exhibition currently running in Jeddah will be able to witness demonstrations on the new concept of investment through the Internet. CSFBdirect-eUnion, the Middle East’s first online brokerage firm and part of the global network of US online brokerage pioneer CSFBdirect, is demonstrating this novel form of investment through demonstration booths on its stand at the exhibition.

 “It is important for Saudi visitors to see for themselves the simplicity of trading though the Internet and the advantages over traditional forms of investment,” explained Ali Zahed, President of CSFBdirect-eUnion. “Transaction transparency, regional support and a wealth of market information and research are some of the reasons that are encouraging more investors in the region to turn to us”.

 Currently providing access to US equities, the company is working to further enhance its services to cater to the requirements of the Middle East market.

 One of the services recently launched is the introduction of Streaming, dynamic, Real-Time market information to the company’s middle east website. The ‘Quicken Quotes Live’ feature will offer Middle East investors instantaneous information on US stock market activity as it happens, especially important during periods of high fluctuation and market activity.

 Quicken Quotes Live will introduce a variety of services to the website, including real-time streaming quotes, Nasdaq Level 2, charts, news, in-depth market analyses as well as Real-time Alerts of activity in specific areas of interest.

 CSFBdirect-eUnion, which was voted Best Financial website in a recent survey conducted by magazine, introduced the Middle East to the concept of online broking last year when it opened a regional office and customer support center in Dubai Internet City. With a regional presence, international standards, access to valuable market information and the right technological infrastructure, CSFBdirect-eUnion is equipped with the right tools to steer investors in the region towards this novel form of brokerage.

 The CSFBdirect-eUnion stand at Comdex Jeddah is number 206.
