A client portal app for a FX & CFD Broker

As an established platform, Eightcap identified that there were significant drop-off rates in their signup process for the application. There was a huge opportunity to capture more individuals during the sign up process. At the same time, the application also offered users numerous benefits including an awards scheme, which was not being used.

Our challenge was to re-imagine the interface to guide new users through the sign up process, educate them on the platform benefits and reduce the overall support burden on the Eightcap team.
