Vital business deals were conducted at this evening’s FinanceFeeds Sydney Cup FX industry networking event. Several key figures from the world’s top brokerages engaged with FX industry technology vendors and service providers, with new innovations being very much on the agenda
This evening, for the first time in the OTC derivatives industry’s now three decade long history, over fifty senior executives from global companies attended a dedicated business to business networking event in what has become a bastion of high quality from retail brokerages, through to prime of prime and technology – Australia.
The eleventh exclusive networking event in the FinanceFeeds Cup series, and the very first to be held in Sydney, Australia, was hosted by FinanceFeeds CEO Andrew Saks-McLeod at the prestigious Establishment in Sydney’s Central Business District.
Attending the event is one aspect of importance, as such a platform for the high quality firms that are very well established in Sydney and form the very well organized electronic financial markets sector in Australia, however the combination of Australia’s position as a very highly respected business center between the all-important Asia Pacific region and the West stands it out as the most important retail FX center in the world.
This has been amplified by the renowned exemplary business environment that makes Australia such an attractive base for modern electronic trading firms, the astute and equally electronic all-seeing-eye of the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) and the globally recognized vast brokerages that operate in Australia and their top drawer reputation among strategic partners, institutions and direct retail customers across the western and eastern hemispheres.
Sponsored by ASIC-regulated Direct FX, whose multi-product MetaTrader 4 trading solution which was developed in conjunction with CQG in order to provide traders with access to OTC markets and listed derivatives via one MetaTrader platform with very low exchange membership and clearing fees, a keynote speech by Director of Business Development Tim Brankin was delivered to an audience which was represented by the FX industry’s finest global companies.

In Australia, conducting business between the various components of the FX industry is facilitated via relationships, and so successful was this event that new innovations were discussed between technology vendors, brokers and service providers, including the commencement of development of new methodologies that will drive the business forward, hence value for brokers and service providers at the Sydney Cup having been the absolute highest ever since the FinanceFeeds Cup series began.
