Pacific Financial Derivatives Review

PFD is in business since 1999 and a regulated broker since 2005. PFD is one of the very few NZ licensed brokers. The Financial Markets Authority (FMA) regulates capital markets and financial services in New Zealand and provides better outcomes for all New Zealanders.

Being a licensed broker, PFD follows stringent laws e.g., segregation of investors' funds, maintenance of adequate capital etc. Traders' dealings with PFD are subject to oversight and monitoring by a regulated body whose aim is to protect the interest of investors. These safeguard investors' funds at the hands of a regulated broker. When it comes to transparency and fairness in dealings, PFD tops the list.

PFD is connected with about a dozen liquidity providers and for that matter enjoys deep liquidity during all trading sessions. From a processing stand point, PFD is a NDD broker. PFD' hosting is at the key datacenter in Equinix NY4, USA to offer low-latency and best liquidity to its clients.

Popular ac types are PFDTrader, PFDPro & PFDProPlus. PFDProPlus is unique that it allows swap net out on the top of all other features of PFDPro - tightest spreads bundled with positive slippage, competitive trading terms and no restriction trading strategy. Net out swaps mean accurate swap values calculated for summarised unhedged position. PFD offers Free FIX API, as well as MAM account types.
