Monex Europe Holdings Limited (MEHL) has achieved a dual milestone with the acquisition of both an investment and payment licence in Spain. This paves the way for the establishment of two new subsidiaries in the region, investment firm, Monex Europe Markets (MEMS), and authorised payment institution, MESL.

The Monex group already operates numerous subsidiaries in the FX industry across the UK, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Toronto, Singapore, USA and Mexico. The two new subsidiaries signal further expansion of Monex’s vast global footprint and its dedication to the European market.

Enhancing existing European operations, the attainment of an investment licence from the Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores enables MEMS to empower clients with a diverse range of non-deliverable FX derivatives and establishes Monex as a trusted participant in the ever-growing investment sector.

Monex’s payment services are tailored to local market

The permission to act as an authorised payment institution, granted by Banco de España, facilitates MESL’s offering of deliverable FX and secure, efficient payment services tailored to the dynamic needs of the local Spanish and wider European market.

Reaffirming a robust commitment to clients in the European Economic Area, these vital acquisitions provide the framework for Monex to revolutionise operations and maximise contributions to Spain’s financial landscape, serving as a catalyst for economic growth and financial empowerment in the region.

Mauricio Naranjo, CEO of Monex said: “We are thrilled to have achieved this dual milestone, which significantly extends our remit in Europe and reflects the steep growth Monex has seen over 2023. These licences firmly position Spain as our European hub, benefitting both existing and new clients across the continent.”
