Why did we create 4xHub?

The Directors behind this business originate from a blend of institutional, professional and retail firms’ and their clients range from top tier banks, hedge funds and sovereign wealth funds to professional and retail traders. 

4xHub will initially concentrate on providing highly competitively priced app based deliverable FX products to ensure that we can deliver the highest quality of execution services in products that we have a proven track record in delivering on over many decades. 

Strategically we intend to build out and extend our company's technology to offer financial derivatives alongside other value added products where we may identify a market inefficiency such that we can offer stable products at a more competitive price to the existing providers.
