Phillip Futures is an Asian financial house with a global reach offering futures options bullion and foreign exchange products. What was initially annoying was the offer that popped up asking us to execute a Java-based application (Phillips' Online Electronic Mart System (POEMS)), whose certificate could not be verified. I’m not a fan of running apps on my system that reach out of the cloud and ask permission to execute.
Nonetheless Phillips Futures is a pioneer in offering online trading services in Singapore. They offer 24-hour broking and execution services for a full range of futures, options and OTC products. Phillip Futures also provides e-trading connectivity to the CME Globex platform, the first global electronic trading system for futures and options and is now the world's premier marketplace for derivatives trading.
Phillips Futures also likes to emphasize investor education by providing regular public seminars that discuss a broad range of topics that are led by experienced brokers and industry experts. A unique educational feature offered by the company is a one-to-one coaching session designed for people who are interested in Futures and/ or Spot Forex/ Bullion trading but who do not have much knowledge of these products or the related markets. This sort of mentoring seems to go at least one step beyond the usual content found at other websites consisting of FAQs or web-linked tutorials that those new to trading need to browse on their own.
Phillips Futures conducts monthly demo sessions for their trading platforms. Phillip Futures offers a full range of trading platforms and one should really visit the platform comparison page to get a feel for the best platform for their individual or institutional trading needs. The amount of choices and options outlined in the chart found there can be a bit much to take in completely in one sitting.
In addition to providing trading platforms for institutional traders, Phillip Futures also provides business solutions and collaborations for corporate clients. APIs and White Labeling options figure prominently in those services.
We would have appreciated Phillips Futures outlining how they support their products to their customers more thoroughly. The site offers some intriguing possibilities otherwise.
