Our history

Price Information Advantage was formed in 2007 as an independent research firm to better serve professional clients’ needs. The focus was providing solid technical based trade ideas to Fund managers, hedge funds and central banks. The company diversified into investment management in 2012 and out of this PIA-First was created to continue the analytic research. After a management buy-out in 2013, Ian and Steve expanded their reach into the trading platform arena and the growth continued.

Over the years, PIA-First has been recognised amongst its peers as a leading provider of technical analysis-based trade idea provision with numerous awards and accomplishments. In 2015 a multi-lingual CMS system was designed and developed to further enhance the global reach.

2018 has been another important year in the development of the firm. The company successfully applied for direct authorisation and regulation by the FCA. More recently, Joe was invited to join the management team bringing a wealth of experience and expertise in portfolio management. A full re-branding has led to the creation of Signal Centre, maintaining the vision of the senior management team, to become a global leader in analysis & trade idea provision.

Our Vision

Whilst we have developed and grown, so has the technology sector, allowing parallel access to research and trading tools for all types of trader. The company continues and strives at being a global market leader in their field with a driven focus on quality research, timely and accurate reports combined with the latest advancements in technology.
