Sydney, Australia, Feb 15, 2013 - (ABN Newswire) - Pepperstone (, one of the fastest growing online foreign exchange ("FOREX", "FX") brokers worldwide, today announced that it has expanded further into Asia with the opening of a representative office in Shanghai, China.

The new branch cements Pepperstone's growing footprint across China - the world's second largest economy. Pepperstone has an established geo-expansion program in China in place to expand its operations in emerging high growth regions. The company is currently identifying new untapped markets in second and third tier cities in the country, distinguishing itself as a first-mover and securing competitive advantage over other international players.

"The office will support existing Mandarin and Cantonese speaking clients whilst also further expanding our client base in China." said Daniel Poon, Managing Director of the China Office, "With already an immense number of Chinese clients trading with Pepperstone the demand for dedicated support for this client segment was well overdue."

A unique feature of Pepperstone's next-generation Forex Trading platform is the ability for customers to access liquidity from 22 banks and ECN's. This option gives direct access to the forex interbank market, where orders are fully visible.
