The company was founded in 1994. In 1995, it was awarded a licence from the supervisory authority, the Czech Securities Commission, for provision of investment services (for example acceptance, handover and performance of instructions and provision of investment consultancy with investment securities and collective investment securities) with the option of accepting funds or investment instruments from customers.
In 2009, in relation to implementation of the EU MiFID directive, the licence was extended by the supervisory authority, the Czech National Bank, to include the option of providing customers a loan for the purpose of securities trading. For clients, this meant extension of the range of services offered to include the option of so-called securities trading on margin. In this period, the company provided its services not only on markets in the Czech Republic, but also on markets in Europe and the USA for both Czech and foreign clients. Within the framework of development of the company and improvement of services, the company’s permit for provision of investment services was further extended, coming into force at the start of 2016, to include the option of performing foreign exchange operations in relation to provision of investment services and the option of placing investment instruments without the obligation of subscription.
