History[edit]

The company was founded in 1972 in Vienna, Austria as Money Field. The primary activity was provision of brokerage services in the stock market: initially the company operated its business in the Vienna Stock market, but soon added access to the Moscow Stock Market and then to other stock exchanges. It also added access to the American market, so that clients could trades on the New York Stock Exchange and the Chicago Stock Exchange.

In 1989 the company added Foreign Exchange trading (Forex) services. And in 1992 Money Field expanded its products by allowing its clients to trade commodities that were listed on NYMEX (New York Mercantile Exchange).
