Mika Holdings Inc owns the OptionFair brand, but had to hand over the administration of the binary options operations to Tradefinancials in a move to secure greater geographical spread and regulatory approvals in certain regions. This coincided with a complete rebranding effort that saw the addition of new trade types and a makeover of the website. OptionFair is a Tech Financial Ltd partner and uses their trading platform for trading operations.
OptionFair is one of the brokerages that use the SpotOption Ltd white label trading platform. This provides the following option contracts to traders:
