Kenanga Futures Sdn Bhd is back with its second nationwide campaign, “Back 2 The Futures” – a campaign that enables domestic clients to access both the U.S. and Malaysian listed derivatives on CME Group and Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Bhd, respectively, and be rewarded.
Taking place from 15 August to 15 November 2018, the Campaign rewards petrol cards worth up to RM200 to new individual clients who trade BMD products, including new and existing clients who open an account and trade CME Group products.
“This is our second nationwide campaign and we are honoured to be supported by BMD and CME Group, the world’s leading derivatives exchange. This Campaign now makes it even easier for clients to be rewarded whilst being able to trade on both CME Group and BMD products on a single platform, which is our very own KDF TradeActive™ that’s available on both desktop and mobile devices,” said Azila Abdul Aziz, Chief Executive Officer and Head of Listed Derivatives, Kenanga Futures Sdn Bhd.
KDF TradeActive™ is the company’s trademarked real-time customised online trading solution where clients can now access both the U.S. and Malaysian listed derivatives on KDF TradeActive™, giving customers easy access to real-time market data and flexibility to trade on-the-go.
“We are pleased to work with Kenanga Futures to help clients in Malaysia access new trading opportunities in global derivatives markets,” said Christopher Fix, Managing Director and Head of Asia Pacific, CME Group. “By connecting to platforms such as KDF TradeActive™, we are helping to develop futures and options markets for Malaysian market participants as well as traders worldwide.”
“This Campaign by Kenanga Futures, which is designed to actively encourage trading of both U.S. and Malaysian listed derivatives through a digital platform, plays a key role in bridging the divide between retail investors and derivatives trading. This in line with our commitment to educate and increase the participation of retail investors in the derivatives market,” said Jamaluddin Nor Mohamad, Chief Executive Officer, Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Berhad.
The Campaign* is open to all existing clients and new eligible individuals aged 18 and above. Participants will need to open an account with Kenanga Futures to start trading CME Group and BMD products, and trade the minimum number of contracts within the first 45 calendar days commencing from the date of account opening or signing of the relevant documents to trade CME Group products. Participants can trade these products via KDF TradeActive™ or by calling the dealing desk at 03 – 2172 3888. All eligible participants will automatically be enrolled in the Campaign.
Commenting further on the Campaign, Azila added, “While we want to capture a new audience and grow our customer base, we ensure that we are continuously engaging, educating and experiencing with our new and existing clients. The Campaign is one of our initiatives where we do our part to create awareness among the general public to be equipped with the right information about listed derivatives – to place funds with a licensed futures broker and trade on regulated Exchanges. It’s about building a smart derivatives trading community in Malaysia with a reliable access to a diverse range of futures products listed on both BMD and CME Group.”
Kenanga Futures maintains its focus on business initiatives that are high impact, cost efficient, and rapidly executed while maintaining its customer-centric focus and compliance culture.
