CHICAGO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--tradeMONSTER, the online brokerage industry leader in user experience, is celebrating its five year anniversary by thanking their customers with $5.00 flat commission executions today on equity and option trades*. Acknowledging tradeMONSTER’s momentum and heightened visibility, its parent company has assumed the tradeMONSTER designation and has been named tradeMONSTER Group, Inc.
“Having such an amazing team, an extremely supportive shareholder base, as well as such great business partners, has allowed us to focus on delivering lasting value to our customers.”
Launched in the throes of the worst financial crisis in generations, tradeMONSTER has been an industry leader in setting a new standard for innovation, user experience and service in retail trading, while continuing to pursue its founding mission of delivering “Anytime, Anywhere Trading.” To that end, in February it launched tradeMONSTER Mobile and was first in the industry to define user experience by offering customers a responsive, mobile design mirroring the ease of use of its award winning web platform. Not only has tradeMONSTER been named ‘Best for Options Traders’ four years in a row by Barron’s, in March this year, it achieved the coveted 4½-star ranking in its annual ‘Best for Online Brokers of 2013’ review, ascending to second place overall in the industry’s definitive rankings. In June, it launched the first HTML5-based iPad app in the online brokerage industry, offering a wide range of tradeMONSTER’s trading tools.
This relentless focus on improving the online brokerage industry’s customer experience has resulted in tradeMONSTER showing tremendous growth in its core market, taking market share from its major competitors.
Dirk Mueller-Ingrand, co-founder and CEO of tradeMONSTER Group, Inc., commented, “We take the most pride in our continued push towards coupling the very best trading technology with superior service and education. While some companies ease off the innovation throttle as they age, we are continuing to surprise our customers and the industry with product ideas intended to inspire those looking for control of their financial future.” Says Mueller-Ingrand, “Having such an amazing team, an extremely supportive shareholder base, as well as such great business partners, has allowed us to focus on delivering lasting value to our customers.”
Earlier this year, tradeMONSTER Group, Inc., the parent of tradeMONSTER and optionMONSTER, won the Illinois Technology Association “Outstanding Technology Development” CityLIGHTS Award for tradeMONSTER Mobile, their markedly innovative and patent pending mobile trading app, while its CTO, Sanjib Sahoo, was awarded the 2013 CIO of the Year by The Executives’ Club of Chicago, the Association of Information Technology Professionals and the Society of Information Management.
“Above all else, we appreciate our customers and their continuous engagement with us. The tradeMONSTER team worked diligently and with purpose to empower our customers, and give them the tools for success over the last five years. We have a lot more coming soon and we couldn't be more excited for our next five years,” said Jim Swartwout, President of tradeMONSTER.
