19th September 2023 LIMASSOL, Cyprus – Leading multi-asset prime brokerage business, 26 Degrees Global Markets has announced that is has obtained a broker licence (435/23) from CySEC, the financial regulatory agency of Cyprus.

This news comes just months after the company, who is already regulated by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC), announced it was rebranding from Invast Global to 26 Degrees Global Markets, repositioning itself to gain market share in the billion-dollar industry as broker dealers, hedge funds and family offices are left out in the cold by the shakeout in the prime brokerage market.

Many hundreds of hours have gone into preparing for the licence by the Cyprus operational team including legal, compliance and management. We are delighted to finally be awarded the licence by CySEC after rigorous standards were met.

Global Chief Commercial Officer

Upon receiving the news, 26 Degrees Chief Executive Officer – EMEA, Riana Chaili, commented, “We are delighted and immensely proud to have obtained the CySEC licence, which emphasises our dedication to operating with the highest level of transparency and integrity. This additional licence further solidifies our position as a leading multi-asset prime broker globally.”

Lochlan White, Chief Commercial Officer – EMEA added, “the CySEC licence approval demonstrates our commitment to building a strong and sustainable business in Cyprus to service our local clients and those in the European time zone. We are excited by the opportunities that this presents for us as a global business and for our valued clients.”

26 Degrees expects to significantly grow its market share over the next five years as it deepens these relationships and capitalises on the changing market conditions that are seeing the traditional Investment Banks exit this market segment creating a vacuum that 26 Degrees is well positioned to fill.

26 Degrees refers to the 26th degree latitude which runs parallel across the widest breadth of Australia dividing it from North to South. It crosses the Indian Ocean to meet the Cradle of Humanity in South Africa, where humankind evolved.
