8 years celebrated in pictures! Gold-i comes of age with London’s FX industry movers & shakers

Gold-i celebrates its 8th birthday at the prestigious Devonshire Terrace in London’s Square Mile. Here is a photographic montage of the evening

On Thursday, September 22, 2016, FX platform integration and liquidity management solutions technology provider Gold-i celebrated its 8th birthday.

8 years is a milestone in terms of the establishment of integration, liquidity management and bridge providers in the retail FX industry, the firm being one of the mainstays within its sector, having been established at a time during which the emulation of institutional platforms by retail brokerages was in its inaugural stages.

Every year, to celebrate the establishment of the firm which has now become a household name in this industry, CEO & Founder Tom Higgins holds a celebration in Central London, which is attended by senior industry leaders.

At the prestigious Devonshire Terrace, in Devonshire Square – now nestling in London’s ultra-modern financial and FinTech center – the Square Mile, Tom Higgins, along with Gold-i Global Head of Sales & Marketing Chris Rowe and Gold-i Head of Sales EMEA Ben Clark welcomed guests from top firms to enjoy the celebration of a firm which played a major part in evolving the entire trading experience for retail traders into live market access provided by aggregated Tier 1 bank liquidity.

FinanceFeeds wishes Gold-i a very happy birthday. Here’s to another great year that can be reflected on at the 9th birthday celebration!
