LONDON and SYDNEY, Australia and JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, March 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FXCM Group, LLC (‘FXCM Group’ or ‘FXCM’), the leading international provider of online foreign exchange trading, CFD trading and related services, announced today that they have been named the Best Zero Commission* Broker in the ADVFN International Financial Awards 2021.
FXCM was awarded the nomination by a panel of judges from ADVFN, a leading global stocks and shares information website. Having only launched the zero-commission CFD shares trading under a year ago, the award is a testament to the success and appeal of FXCM’s offering in bringing the most sought-after trading opportunities.
Over the course of last year, FXCM has broadened its offering with a range of new instruments and trading opportunities. Enabling zero-commission trading was a key part of this expansion and in increasing the ease of market access for retail investors during the unprecedented volatility brought by the global pandemic.
Brendan Callan, CEO of FXCM said: “Being named Best Zero Commission Broker by ADVFN is a hugely rewarding acknowledgement of our team’s hard work, especially on such a recent update in our offering. There’s clearly a growing expectation from traders for more affordable investing opportunities, and that’s the cornerstone of our approach. It’s been a really exciting few months for retail investors and this award is complement to our efforts in providing our clients with some of the best opportunities to capitalise on today’s volatility.”
*FXCM can be compensated in several ways, which includes but are not limited to adding a mark-up to the spreads it receives from its liquidity providers, adding a mark-up to rollover, etc. Commission-based pricing is applicable to Active Trader account types.
