““Sitting in the backyard of those family friends, to see the devastation the floods had brought, was a real eye-opener, and a testimony to the Salvos who were on the ground helping every one of those in need during the recent NSW floods.”

ACY Securities has received recognition for its support to charity work at the 2022 Annual Gala of Australian Chinese United Business Associated Federation Salvation Army Charity Dinner on Sunday evening.

As part of its charity efforts, ACY Securities helped to raise $22,888 which went directly to the Salvation Army NSW. The broker’s COO, Ashley Jessen, spoke to a ballroom of around 350 guests about recent floods in Northern NSW and the role of the Salvos to help families in need to rebuild their homes and lives.

Floods were a real eye-opener for Ashley Jessen

Ashley Jessen, Chief Operating Officer at ACY Securities said, “It was a great honor to receive the Certificate of Appreciation from the Salvation Army in NSW, recognizing the continuing support we at ACY Securities have provided to help make a positive impact on our local communities. ACY is profoundly grateful for the tireless work the Salvation Army have done and continue to do, touching the lives of countless people in Australia and abroad.

“Sitting in the backyard of those family friends, to see the devastation the floods had brought, was a real eye-opener, and a testimony to the Salvos who were on the ground helping every one of those in need during the recent NSW floods.

Miriam Gluyas, Divisional Commander for the Salvation Army in NSW, gave the Certificate of Appreciation during the 2022 Annual Gala of the Australian China United Business Association Federation Salvation Army Sydney Charity Dinner.

Winson Cao, Co-founder and Chief Risk Officer of ACY Securities, was dually thanked by Miriam Gluyas, Deputy Mayor Brendon Zhu, The Hon. Dr Helen Sham-Ho, Councillor Nancy Liu, Councillor Nathan Tilbury, and a host of other dignitaries, for his continued donations to
their charities.

ACY Securities expanded trading offering on MT4 and MT5

The ASIC-regulated multi-asset broker has recently won the Best Transparent Trading Broker Award at the Smart Vision Investment Expo held in Cairo and Alexandria on 3-6 November 2022.

The award follows a string of recognition and accolades bestowed on ACY Securities by industry peers as well as the wider business community
in different countries, including the Business Excellence Award presented by the Hong Kong Australia Business Association (NSW Chapter) in late October.
