ATFX Wins Two Awards at 2020 Forex Broker Awards

May 1st. 2020
- ATFX won the awards for the Best Affiliate program and the Best News & Analysis Provider at the recently concluded, Forex Broker Awards 2020.

These are the 6th and 7th awards won by ATFX this year alone. The awards feature some of the best brokers competing against one another for users' votes in various categories. ATFX has won five awards leading up to this point in the year already. These two additions show clear evidence that the broker's products and services resonate with its customers.

ATFX won the best news and analysis provider award based on the accurate and timely analysis provided by its top analysts. Alejandro Zambrano, ATFX’s Global Chief Market Strategist and Martin Lam, ATFX’s Chief Analyst of Asia Pacific lead the team of analysts globally. The two are responsible for transforming the broker’s news and analysis content into the award-winning service that it is today.

The broker also won the best affiliate program award. This is down to its excellent collaboration with partners to provide educational resources to its clients. The award recognises the efforts of the broker to deliver exceptional education.

Each category had a list of five brokers who were selected by a team of industry professionals as the finalists. The winners were selected by traders who voted for the best broker in each category. ATFX emerged number one in the two categories above. The voting process was regulated so that each voter could only vote once in each of the different categories listed.

ATFX’s Global Chief Market Strategist, Alejandro Zambrano stated that “In the last 12 months the ATFX research and news team has been working very hard to deliver insightful analysis to clients in multiple languages. This helps enhance their trading decisions and market outlook.

The feedback from our clients has been excellent and we're thrilled that the people who use our services, voted for us to win the award - Best News & Analysis Provider 2020. Despite the lockdowns, ATFX is stronger today than it was at the start of 2019. We've introduced a wealth of new services to ATFX clients, such as automated technical analysis, coaching and premium education. All to support our clients as they strive to reach their trading aspirations.”

ATFX’s UK Managing Director, Wei Qiang Zhang commented that “It's rewarding to know that our clients and partners are responsible for us winning these top awards. Their votes have propelled us to the top of the two categories. The Best News & Analysis provider award shows that we're both experts in the field as well as our commitment to using that expertise to benefit our clients.

We won’t relent in our efforts to distinguish our services in a very crowded industry. We’ll continue to offer world-class services to every individual trader who trusts us with their funds.

We're confident that our work will pay dividends for our clients in the year ahead. We hope future award ceremonies will be equally as fruitful, not just for the award but for the knowledge that we're delivering for our clients.”

May 1st 2020 - Thailand - ATFX visited the Wat Don Chan Organization located in Chiang Mai and donated to the children’s home run by the organization. Our team in Thailand identified the children’s home as being in great need due to dwindling donations amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The charitable organisation has suffered a significant drop in donations due to the coronavirus pandemic and is struggling to fund its operations. The precarious financial position the foundation faces puts over 700 children at risk and is why the ATFX Thai team felt they needed to help, hence the donation.

The Wat Don Chan Organization serves children who have been orphaned as a result of the HIV/AIDS scourge and have nowhere else to go. Some of the children at the home are there because their parents are in prison. Most come from the Hill Tribe areas around Chiang Mai, and the home is their last resort.

The ATFX staff in Thailand teamed up with IBs when visiting the children’s home and was part of the firm’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme. The team has also made other donations to Thai hospitals and fire departments involved in fighting wildfires in parts of Thailand.

We’re committed to helping the communities in which we operate and leaving them better than we found them. Our goal is to create equal opportunities for people from all walks of life. We would like to urge other businesses and individuals to step in and help the Wat Don Chan Organization. We are currently working to implement a sustainable community plan for the organization given their lack of resources.

ATFX launched a global youth support programme in 2018 that aims to provide support and assistance to youth from underprivileged backgrounds so they can realise their full potential. We support and care for the children, and aim to equip them with life skills so they can face life’s challenges with a positive attitude.

The programme is currently operational in Thailand, Malaysia, UK and more. There are also plans to reach more countries and help more vulnerable youth.

Traders Education is Important During Volatile Market Conditions

ATFX is focused on educating its clients because we believe that the best investor/trader is a knowledgeable investor. Our goal is to have more clients trading with their head rather than their heart. Taking the emotions out of trading helps clients perform consistently. It removes erratic behaviour that can affect P/L. The fact that we can’t host physical seminars has not stopped us from educating our clients during this difficult time.

We’ve been running a series of webinars during this period to ensure our clients stay ahead of market events. These webinars cover a range of topics such as:

• How to earn from gold trading
• How to earn from stock trading
• Technical analysis based on Fibonacci retracements
• How to trade US stocks
• Price action trading

The webinars go over basic strategies required to trade each specific market. We also go over any hot topics at the time of the webinar. Recent examples include how to trade oil during the volatility in April and how to trade gold in the risk-off market environment.

The webinars are structured to cater to both beginners and experienced traders. ATFX runs these webinars at least twice a week meaning clients will learn something new every week. We also host special webinars for our introducing brokers (IBs) where we cover different topics on how they can grow their businesses.

We held 12 webinars in March when the WHO declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. We then dramatically increased that number to 55 in April as it became clear that physical seminars were out of the question. We plan to hold 64 webinars in May as we expand our training programme to cater to both new and existing clients.

These webinars are available to our clients in the following countries: Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, the MENA region and Sub-Saharan Africa.

We have a series of webinars planned for May as we continue to educate and inform our clients and partners during this challenging period. Our goal is to equip our clients with the right skills to help them manage risk better and to ensure that they are proficient at using the tools available on our trading platforms.

ATFX to expand Europe operations and invest in education after share capital increase of £1.5m


On 30 April, 2020, ATFX received regulatory approval to increase its share capital by £1.5m.


During a testing time for the global economy, lots of businesses are being forced to slow down operations and consolidate what they already have. ATFX has decided on a different approach and stuck with their business model to expand operations. They're confident this approach combined with a resilient team will see them as a stronger company after this crisis.


The funds raised by increasing share capital will be invested in several areas to facilitate the organic growth of the business.


2019 saw increased investment and growth into the operations of the UK office and this will continue with the additional influx of funds. Expanding operations will include growing market reach by hiring additional native speakers of European countries as well as countries we are yet to expand to.


ATFX believes that the best way to ensure excellent customer service is to have local talent that speaks the respective language. Not only does this help with communication but knowing the client’s culture will allow them to better serve their needs.


The expansion into other markets will also include a new office hub for the business. Extensive research and analysis have been conducted to evaluate the best location to serve all our clients. Funding will be put towards the initial start-up costs of a new office and recruitment in that area. Once set up, an additional hub will be a great base to support operations in the region.


As well as expanding market reach and personnel, the intention is also to strengthen the product suite. All products are developed in house by a highly skilled technology team. This sustainable approach was taken because developing products from scratch gives greater oversight and autonomy when they’re rolled out.


This ability to create new products at will means that additional investment will result in the quick and efficient delivery of products. This move increases business capabilities and aligns ATFX with major fintech companies. To continue to lead in this sector, ATFX has identified that it also must be an innovative technology company. Creating technology products that deliver to clients unique needs will become the norm. ATFX is ensuring that they're right at the top when it comes to technology and development.


Products will be targeted to both retail and institutional investors. ATFX Connect is an example of a recently launched project that will also receive funding to provide more instruments and more services to institutional investors.


Having listened to clients, the broker has identified points most important to them when trading. Having highlighted gaps, funds will be used to plug those holes with the relevant products and services to deliver the best experience for our clients.


Another core pillar to the ATFX business model, and something they intend to invest heavily in, is trader’s education. ATFX is a firm believer that their success only comes if clients are successful. Profitable and successful clients will become longer-term customers, whereas those that lose quickly are more likely to give up trading altogether.


A huge focus has already been put on the education suite but the intention is to grow this even further. As a major portion of clients can be categorised as beginner or intermediate, it is essential they’re given the most relevant educational materials to be successful.


Further investment will be made into online events for traders to attend. Here industry leaders will host online seminars where you'll be able to ask direct questions to each host. Interaction is key with these events therefore using the most up to date software to deliver these events will be critical for clients to really benefit from each one.


On top of that, there will be education courses for clients to work through in their own time. They will have access to analysts on a one to one basis, including Alejandro Zambrano, ATFX Chief Market Strategist. This one to one coaching is available to help clients fully understand how to utilise their learning.


ATFX (UK) Managing Director, Wei Qiang Zhang, commented that “Our values underpin the successes achieved by the company and therefore we see no need to change our model but to instead press ahead with our strategy.


With overwhelming support from our shareholder and clear leadership, we’ve built a great culture that ensures confidence in our team. That confidence drives us to continue our investment and expansion plans to better serve our clients. We will deliver on this because our values are reflected in the attitudes and behaviours of our staff without whom the achievement of our vision would not be possible.


This is an exciting time for us, despite the current economic climate, we’re confident our expansion plan will bear fruits in the long term. Putting our clients at the forefront of all decisions will help us create relationships and loyalty with them for years to come. We endeavour to be proactive in identifying and meeting the ever-changing needs of our customers and plan to continue improving our processes, services and products to cater to clients.”


Whilst a key focus is always on business and moving that forward, ATFX also has a corporate social responsibility plan. Prior to the global coronavirus pandemic, ATFX were vocal in their support for local charitable foundations that mean a lot to our client’s communities. Since the crisis, they have increased their contribution to local foundations. With examples being food donations in Thailand and more recently a food donation to the frontline NHS workers in the UK.
