Why POEMS 2.0?

Classic POEMS (commonly known as P1 or POEMS Internet) has been in service since 1996. Yes, you read that right! It’s been over 20 years since P1 was launched.

In order to better serve our customers’ needs and keep up with technological advances, we launched POEMS 2.0 (also known as P2) in 2013. POEMS 2.0 has since been proven indispensable to our clients and, along with POEMS Mobile 2.0 and POEMS Mercury, form the award-winning POEMS suite of trading platforms which has won the hearts of many.

Taking into consideration the feedback from our customers, we redesigned POEMS 2.0 in 2017/18 to provide you with a seamless and intuitive web-based trading experience. Why hesitate? It’s time for you to try out POEMS 2.0 now!

*Classic POEMS is scheduled for discontinuation. Details will be announced at a later date.
