HMS Markets


Readers looking for a Luxembourg account have enquired about HMS Markets, alongside the better-known Internaxx and Keytrade. While the firm is a relatively long-established institutional broker-dealer, its stocks, futures, CFDs and FX trading service for retail investors is a rebadged version of the Saxo Bank platform.

In common with most Saxo white labels, commissions seem to be the same as they are through Saxo, although the minimum account size is smaller, at €5,000. Other than that, there doesn’t seem to be any particular reason to use HMS Markets as opposed to opening an account directly with Saxo.
