Increased investment in City Index by Nasdaq-listed parent, StoneX Group Inc., marks the company’s renewed focus on the Singapore market, showcasing its mission to align its success with that of traders.
SINGAPORE, April 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — City Index, a leading provider of global trading platforms, today announced the launch of its new corporate brand, re-establishing itself as one of the pioneers of CFD trading in Singapore. To empower its clients with better access to news, data and analysis insights, the company also introduced its new innovative performance analytics feature, ‘PlayMaker’, which allows clients to monitor their trading plans in real time.
Since launching locally in 2006, City Index has become a familiar brand for many Singapore investors and traders. With the release of its new corporate branding and features, the company aims to emphasise its alignment with its clients’ goals, driven by the desire to be a trusted partner – a provider of choice, value, and insight.

The relaunch of our brand and the introduction of PlayMaker’s performance analytics further sharpen our focus on client satisfaction and education, uplifting the City Index brand and positioning it for continued success."
