FXCM Has the Most Satisfied FX and Spread Betting Clients

FXCM UK (www.fxcm.co.uk), a leading provider of foreign exchange trading and related services, has been awarded a series of accolades by UK retail traders.

Following an in-depth study of more than 13,000 UK-based retail investors, a report by Investment Trends, a specialist research organisation, identified FX and spread betting clients trading with FXCM as the most satisfied overall.

The Investment Trends report, entitled ‘The state of the CFD, retail FX and Spread Betting markets in the UK in 2013’, is the largest known study of online retail investors in Britain, and was conducted between August and September 2013.

It recognised FXCM’s efforts in addressing gaps in the market, many of which centered on education, research and trading ideas. This resulted in UK-based FX traders and spread betters naming FXCM as the best provider for education materials and research tools.

It also found that FXCM consolidated its position as the second largest provider of retail FX in the UK. In particular, it benefited from ‘switchers’ – traders who left a competitor to trade with FXCM – while successfully maintaining its existing client base.

Drew Niv, CEO, FXCM, commented: “We are delighted to have been officially recognised by Investment Trends as the number one FX broker for client satisfaction, education and research tools. The UK is a key market for us, and this success is a reflection of our efforts to provide the best trading experience for our UK traders that offers the full package – execution, speed, charting, education and transparency.

“One of the benefits of FXCM’s business model is that we benefit from successful traders. Therefore, we are heavily focused on providing educational services to our clients to help them become better and more profitable traders. FXCM has always had an array of education resources available to clients – from DailyFX.com, our independent news and research portal, to a variety of charting packages and weekly in-house seminars.”

Overall, the report found the increasing popularity of smartphones and tablets resulted in mobile trading becoming the norm in the UK, with 70% of FX traders using mobile devices in relation to trading of which almost 90% use them to monitor their trading positions.

Niv added: ”Mobile trading transformed the way people trade, as it provides the opportunity to have 24-hour access to the global FX market on-the-go, regardless the geographical location or time zone. This in turn has lead to in higher trading volumes and greater liquidity.

“FXCM has put enormous effort and resources into ensuring our mobile and tablet trading applications are amongst the best in class, and incorporates all the major functions of the FXCM desktop and web platforms. We believe mobile trading is poised for further growth and FXCM is in an excellent position to capitalise on this.”
