Since pioneering online trading over 30 years ago, CMC continues to innovate and respond to market changes and challenges. Today the Group boasts a broad financial services offering spanning the globe. Through our new API ecosystem we can add new products and markets quickly, for both our B2B and B2C clients. We believe this breadth and level of flexibility, through one industry standard connection protocol, will be the best-in-class B2B and B2C financial services platform on the market.
During the past year, we have made progress to refine and deliver our diversification strategy. We have improved our product range across our core trading CFD and spread bet businesses, offering our clients access to a wider range of financial instruments through our award-winning platforms. We have leveraged our existing technology to launch a new investment platform in the UK, with a Singapore platform launching imminently, as well as opening a new office in Dubai to support the rapid growth we are seeing in our institutional business.
Through our new API ecosystem we are leveraging our technology to facilitate growth through B2B expansion. By partnering with our clients directly we are able to offer access to our deep liquidity, products, and technology stacks. Fostering additional B2B partnerships is front and centre in our strategy to achieve sustainable long-term growth.
CMC is changing quickly. Investment in our trading platforms continues and over the coming six months we’re positioned to launch cash equities, options and listed futures across our various platforms to allow our clients better opportunities to trade or hedge existing portfolio positions. Invest UK will be launching SIPPs and mutual funds, whilst Invest Singapore will initially offer equities, ETFs, options and futures. Additionally, over the course of the next 12 months, we plan to introduce a new multi-asset platform capable of trading a much wider range of instruments. I look forward to updating you later this year on further progress.
