Alpari (US), LLC (“Alpari”), a global provider of foreign exchange (“Forex”, “FX”) trading services, today announces that its affiliate overseas has established a new company to facilitate the mature Forex market in Japan. Alpari (UK) has acquired the Japanese assets of CMS Forex; renamed Alpari (Japan). The office will be an independent entity providing trading services in Forex, contracts for difference and precious metals.

Daniel Skowronski, CEO of Alpari (US), comments, “We are especially excited about the prospects for Alpari UK in Japan, a country where Forex is very popular and well understood. We are confident that the proven Alpari business model, focused around highly advanced trading technology, outstanding client service and a global team of experts, will position the company competitively in this sophisticated market. We anticipate rapid expansion of their client base and believe that Alpari (Japan) will become the number one MetaTrader broker in the country.”

Combined, Alpari (UK) and the previous CMS team in Japan will hit the ground running, as each have extensive experience in the Japanese Forex market. Until December 2010, Alpari (UK) provided a full suite of trading services to Japanese residents who were enamoured by the MT4 execution model in place. It is that interest that has enabled the company to establish a physical office within the country and capitalize on the enormous potential from Japanese traders who identify Alpari as one of the leading MetaTrader providers in the world.

Skowronski adds, “With the former team of CMS Forex in place, Alpari UK is looking forward to becoming a local player in the notoriously difficult Japanese market. Alpari (US), a key member of the Alpari group of companies, will benefit as the Alpari brand continues to expand and become recognized across the globe.”
