The Ridge Group is a forex and CFD broker that provides trading solutions sophisticated enough for veteran traders, yet simple enough for the forex novice.
Who Are We?
The Ridge assists retail and institutional investors in using forex and other instruments as an asset class and part of their investment objectives. We strive to offer the best trading platforms with access to low-cost pricing, reliable trading infrastructure, fast execution and exceptional client support. The Ridge offers direct access to multiple destinations of liquidity in the forex markets without the usual burdens of a deal desk that had previously been unavailable to the retail investor.
When Was The Ridge Founded?
The Ridge was founded in 2010 by a veteran management-team with years of experience in the forex and technology industries. The company is based in Melbourne, Australia and has offices in Dallas, Bangkok and London.
Why Was The Ridge Created?
The Ridge was created because its management team sensed a growing frustration among traders using online-based forex trading firms plagued by delays in trade execution, excessive spreads and poor customer-support. To provide a better trading experience, The Ridge aims to offer superior technology that uses low-latency execution, low-cost spreads, and exceptional customer service.
Our management team comes from a solid pedigree with vast experience in the industry and understands what retail forex traders need to trade effectively. We are not just content by keeping up with developments in the forex world – our commitment to our clients is a constant never-ending improvement of services. Whenever possible we aim to create, develop, and introduce our own solutions that ultimately make online trading easier, fairer and more professional for clients whether they be a small retail investor or a large institution.
Since 2010, The Ridge has set out to spearhead the evolution of online forex trading in over 65 countries, helping this asset-class to become more accessible to the individual retail investor. We aimed when we began to revolutionise the industry by offering traders better service, lower spreads and faster execution, something we are still absolutely committed to doing today. Our vision is to become the world’s largest provider of online foreign exchange trading.
