Company is servicing the largest Securities firms, Banks and Financial institutions of the Greek market, while providing services to listed companies on the Athens Stock Exchange and individuals with high interest in the Greek and International markets.

ForInvest S.A., the sister company of Inforex, was established in early 1990 as a joint Swiss-Turkish venture and according to latest official figures from Istanbul Stock Exchange, it constitutes one of the main data vendors at the domestic market, providing services to banks’ and brokerage houses’ websites as well as to internet portals in Turkey.

Oceantrade S.A., the parent company, established Inforex based on the successful business model of ForInvest with an already impressive track record in Turkey, which has a very similar market to Greece in terms of local investor profiles, market trends, characteristics and competition. Having the successful business model and being part of a strong Group, Inforex managed to become highly competitive, adaptable to market requirements and capable of providing prompt and fully sufficient services to clients’ increasing information needs.
