Tiger Brokers has announced its United States-based subsidiary, TradeUP Securities, has become a member of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), in a milestone for the global brokerage firm.
The company is one of the very first fintech brokers to obtain the membership status in New York Stock Exchange LLC, NYSE American LLC, and NYSE Arca, Inc..
Tiger Brokers, which boasts the astonishing number of global licenses and qualifications of 59, can now offers access to direct trading on NYSE.
Direct market access to electronic executions on NYSE will allow investors to upgrade their investing experience reshaped by lower latency, more competitive pricing, and more flexible order placements.
The approval followed an all-around assessment by NYSE over Tiger Brokers’ compliance standards, operations management, capital requirements, and its front- and back-end systems.
