Pioneers of Online Stocks Trading in Pakistan
AKD Trade has the distinct honor of initiating Online Trading in Pakistan which enabled investors to trade at the Karachi Stock Exchange from anywhere around the globe using internet.
This initiative came at a time when the investor base at the KSE was very limited and the general public had a very restricted access to stock exchange due to complex trading and settlement mechanism of the conventional model. Infact, nobody in the industry was ready to take up the challenge of providing convenience to the retail investors and bring transparency and reliability in the stocks business; as launching online trading facility required quite a lot of investment in the systems as well as human resources as compared to the conventional model.
But it was the vision of Mr. Aqeel Karim Dhedhi – Chairman AKD Group, who had foreseen the future of stock trading that despite all the negative sentiment prevailing in the industry and huge investment required for launching the same, we finally came up with the solution and introduced online trading in Pakistan.
