Following the launch of its new online casino last week, Victor Chandler International (VCI) is further expanding its online offering with the addition of financial spread betting through an exclusive agreement with WorldSpreads Group plc.
Scheduled for launch in January 2009, VictorChandlerFinancals.com will provide VCI's customers with access to more than 4,000 financial market instruments such as stock indices, currencies, commodities and individual shares.
“I personally have a great passion for the financial markets and am delighted that we are able to add this product to our offering,” said Victor Chandler. “We feel that we share with WorldSpreads much of our culture of committed customer support and creative marketing and I am excited by the prospects for our joint venture together.”
Michael Carlton, Chief Executive of Victor Chandler International, added: “Our agreement with WorldSpreads enables us to offer what we believe will be a very popular additional product for our customers to enable them to access the exciting world of the financial markets. Further, we believe that the very high levels of media attention currently afforded to the volatility in the prices of financial products support the timing of our entry into this market.”
