LONDON, September 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Robert Lempka, previously CEO of ABN AMRO's 'marketindex' and now Executive Chairman of new financial services player Gekko Global Markets has slammed the financial services industry saying "It has been clear for some time that many banks and other financial institutions have done little but think of themselves, they have lost touch with their customers and they are no longer trusted. At the same time the drive toward ever more stringent regulation will achieve little but drive more and more customers to finding self-directed means of investment."

In anticipation to these significant market shifts Gekko Global Markets, currently a spread betting and CFD trading company has launched a brand new next generation trading platform. TradeHub®, which is also available on iPhone, uses the very latest HTML5 technology and it has been purposely designed for people who are both new to trading as well as professional traders.
Lempka said "Financial markets in the UK, across Europe and throughout the world are undergoing unprecedented levels of change and Gekko is creating and seizing upon hi-tech solutions to empower and satisfy the self-directed needs and wants of investors and traders."
Gekko's new platform gives clients the option of committing 100% to a spread bet effectively creating the equivalent to a cash equity investment without any CGT liability and without the need to pay stamp duty. This facility gives traditional cash equity investors much wider investment opportunities than they have now in that they can invest in a range of different asset classes e.g. FTSE100, any number of indices, commodities etc.
