“With Alibaba Cloud’s robust presence across the Asia Pacific region, Tiger Brokers will be able to scale up our online platform across markets with ease when the opportunity arises,” added Kelvin.

UP Fintech’s first quarter earnings showed positive momentum with total revenues at US$81.3 million, a 255.5% increase from the first quarter of 2020. Total trading volume also surged past US$123.8 billion dollars, nearly triple the same period in 2020. Total number of customers with deposits increased by 180.4% year-over-year to 376.0K. Tiger Brokers will continue to enhance the functionality of its platform, augmenting their comprehensive capability to serve corporate clients, as well as the execution of their global expansion strategy.
