Customers are offered leveraged Contract for Difference (CFD) products in the over-the-counter market, including Forex, indices, commodities, digital currencies, stocks and ETFs, as well as listed instruments.

Therefore, the Company focuses on the improvement of the general trading skills of  experienced traders and the training of new enthusiasts as well.

In addition to the provision of other support services, under White Label agreements, Admiral Markets AS, being the  administrator and developer of the platform, provides all sister companies that are part of the same consolidation group the possibility of using the investment platform.

Due to this, the results of Admiral Markets AS depend on other companies in the Group.

In addition to the services offered to retail, professional and institutional customers, Admiral Markets AS also acts as a  provider of support services for its consolidation group companies, being responsible for all key middle and back-office functions: administration and development of IT platforms, risk management, liquidity provision, marketing, financial services, compliance.

Admiral Markets AS has subsidiaries in Canada and Jordan. The branch in Poland and the representative office in the Russian Federation were closed in connection with shaping the strategy of Admiral Markets AS’ parent company Admirals Group AS for the coming years.
