Melbourne Storm has become the first Australian sporting team to partner with NASDAQ listed online broker Tigers Brokers, who have signed a one-year agreement with the NRL club.
With nine million registered users worldwide, Tiger Brokers are entering the Australian market for the first time in March with its proprietary one-stop investing platform Tiger Trade and have recently opened an office in Sydney.
Storm CEO, Justin Rodski, said the club was thrilled to become Tiger Brokers’ first sporting partner in Australia in the countdown to their Tiger Trade platform online launch and the start of the 2022 NRL season.
“We’re very excited to have an internationally recognised leader in the fintech trading field join our growing family of partners. We can’t wait to help Tiger Brokers with what we are sure will be a very successful entry into the Australian market,” Rodski said.
“Tiger Brokers are seeking strong brand awareness and that’s what Storm can offer with our high online and broadcast numbers, as well as the on-field success the club has enjoyed over a sustained period.
“Tiger Brokers will feature on the LED signage at Storm’s home games, beginning with our long-awaited return to AAMI Park against South Sydney on March 17.
“There is also a digital integration strategy which focuses strongly on education and awareness, covering a wide range of financial topics.
“We look forward to engaging with Tiger Brokers throughout the season and potentially turning this partnership into a longer-term arrangement.” Rodski said.
Since its inception in 2014, Tiger Brokers has become one of the world’s fastest growing online broker for millennials and Gen Z, as well as seasoned investors.
The company aims to put the power in investor’s hands through superfast next-generation technology, providing access to global financial markets including Australia, the United States and Asia, as well as offering in-depth analysis and building a community of traders and investors through its social trading capabilities.
Michael McCarthy, Chief Strategy Officer at Tiger Brokers (AU) said: “We’re excited to partner with one of the most successful NRL teams - the Melbourne Storm.
“Tiger Brokers is passionate about helping the community customise trading and seeks to put control in the hands of investors. Our values are aligned with the Storm, in that hard work and passion bring about a successful journey whether it's on the field or in the hands of individual investors. We believe this partnership will support our mission to help everyday Aussies take full control of their investing journey.”
“Partnering with the Storm was an easy choice for us because they represent hard work, respect, and passion, values that Tiger Brokers prides itself on. At Tiger Brokers, we are committed to investing in diversity and inclusion. This partnership is a part of a broader program to create a more successful, accessible and empowering future for all.”
