âThe Toronto operation allows SIX Telekurs to better serve our growing Canadian customer baseâ, said Barry Raskin, Managing Director of SIX Telekurs in the Americas. âWe recognize the fact that the best way to fully understand and service the needs of a particular market is to have a direct presence there.â
Serving local markets with local staff is a strategy that SIX Telekurs has pursued for many years. The company sources financial information â including pricing and reference data on more than five million international securities â through its network of offices and branches in 23 countries. This approach ensures that employees responsible for data collection and customer service are well versed in the local market conventions, speak the local language and are available in the local time zones.
âBy establishing an on-the-ground presence in Canada, we are better positioned to fully appreciate the nuances of the Canadian market and the regulatory environment in which the firms operateâ, said Fritz Hediger, Head of International Sales at SIX Telekurs. âWe have long understood that the best way to ensure high quality products and world-class customer service is to be close to our marketsâ.
SIX Telekursâ offices in Toronto are located in the cityâs financial center, at First Canadian Place, 100 King Street. Customers and prospects will be contacted directly for introduction to the local staff.
