CHICAGO, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Chicago-based Phillip Futures Inc.
is proud to announce it has received National Futures Association (NFA) approval to become a forex dealer member (FDM) and forex firm. As an FDM, Phillip Futures will be able to offer over-the-counter (OTC) foreign exchange products to customers residing in the US and abroad. With the increasing trend of retail foreign exchange dealers exiting the U.S. market, Phillip Futures is the first new FDM entering the U.S. market since 2012. As of April, 2014, there were a total of eleven US firms that carried retail forex balances. The firm plans to launch its OTC forex offering to customers beginning the fall of 2014.

A member of the Singapore-based PhillipCapital Group
established since 1975, Phillip Futures made its U.S. debut in 2010 as a futures commission merchant (FCM) with self-clearing memberships at CME, CBOT, NYMEX, COMEX, DME, ICE US, CFE (CBOE) and NYSE LIFFE. For the PhillipCapital Group, which operates in 16 financial markets and has 900,000 clients worldwide, entering the U.S. OTC forex arena is a natural progression since the Group already offers OTC forex through its Singapore, Turkey, Japan, Hong Kong and Australia offices. PhillipCapital Group of Companies have memberships at 26 exchanges combined.

Phillip Futures will offer the Meta Trader 4
(MT4) platform and straight through processing for its OTC forex offering. Apart from offering the major currency pairs, it will also offer exotic currencies like Thai Baht and Chinese Reminbi.

“Forex is the largest, most liquid market in the world, and with the shrinking number of OTC retail forex firms in the U.S., we see the potential for growth opportunities in the U.S.” Lynette Lim, CEO and Director of Phillip Futures said. “With Phillip Futures entering the U.S. OTC forex market, we bring along the stability of PhillipCapital Group, which has been profitable since its founding and bears no debt. We plan to be a long-term player here in the US.”   

In addition to OTC forex, Phillip Futures also plans to expand into equities and become a self-clearing broker dealer by mid to late 2015. For more information about Phillip Futures, visit www.PhillipUSA.com
