Gulf Brokers

Trade as PRO with ease.

Gulf Brokers is an award-winning financial broker and a well-known trading platform. The client teamed up with Cleevio to build an Asian version of Robinhood. Together we developed native mobile experiences for financial traders across countries in Asia. It was an immense responsibility for us to deliver this complex product for a highly demanding audience.

At Cleevio, we were able to reduce the risk of failure at the initial phase of the development and delivered the product with the best market fit. Yet we believe that the perfect product doesn't exist. That is why we keep iterating and continuously improve the usability of the product with our data-driven approach.

Unique Solutions

The real-time
market data.

Getting real-time market data fast is crucial for traders. To ensure the fastest communication between the broker server (Xstation) and CRM server, the database servers are deployed in 2 different regions: UAE and DE.

DevOps

For this project, multiple microservices were developed and deployed. Cleevio API (client-side API) for communicating with the client’s CRM (MyZone). Trading API for real-time communication over Websockets with the broker (Xstation) and transmitting data into mobile apps.

A spectrum of
trading instruments

The application supports forex, shares, commodities, and more! Traders can pick the favorite market and follow them.

Automated CI/CD
deployment

We set up automated CI/CD deployment to each microservice - on each region ensuring transparent and error-free deployment of any functionality or bug-fix.

User-focused UI

To make trading faster for the users, we made CTAs (Sell & Buy) buttons visible and accessible in the app.

Stats

Cleevio was able to release and run 3 clones of the application on the same infrastructure. It required us only 12 man-days in total to get one clone app of Gulf Brokers set up and running.
