Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SYDNEY, Australia - Jul 27, 2016 - OANDA has been named the world’s Best Retail FX Platform at the prestigious e-FX awards by leading industry publication FX Week, beating out a host of competitors and knocking last year’s winner off the top spot.
A global leader in online multi-asset trading services, OANDA combines cutting-edge trading technology and exceptional execution across a wide range of asset classes, enabling clients to trade global market indices, commodities, treasuries, precious metals and currencies both on their institutional-grade OANDA trading platform and the ever popular MT4.
Ed Eger, President & CEO of OANDA Corporation, says, “We are truly honoured to receive this distinguished award, especially given the competition was so fierce this year. As a FinTech firm, we continually strive to improve our technologies in order to better serve clients and enhance their trading experience. This year alone we’ve already launched an all-new advanced charting html 5 package, introduced multiple mobile enhancements and begun the global rollout of our new stateof-the-art platform featuring institutional-grade execution speeds. As such, this award represents the very essence of the 20-year transformation OANDA has undertaken.”
Now in its 13th year, the 2016 e-FX Awards recognise excellence, innovation and superior customer service in foreign exchange, focusing on quality rather than quantity and traded volumes. The winners were decided by a panel of industry experts, each of whom spent time exploring the platform and speaking with clients from every brokerage before ultimately determining the winner.
