In such an online, highly technologically advanced industry as ours, the ability for senior executives to socialize and meet with each other is paramount, and where better to do this than the global center of the retail FX industry – Limassol, Cyprus.

On Friday, April 8, 40 executives from across all sectors of the FX industry attended the very first FinanceFeeds networking event, “The Cyprus Cup” at the exclusive and highly luxurious Limassol Yacht Club, in Limassol Marina.

The extremely comprehensive electronic trading industry in Cyprus has evolved tremendously over recent years, and is now home to an entire ecosystem including technology vendors for binary options and FX, digital marketing firms which dedicate their services specifically to the electronic trading business, retail brokerages with offices across the globe, liquidity providers and prime brokerages, signal providers, branding experts and educational service providers.

Not to put too fine a point on it, Cyprus has risen to prominence as a tour de force and leads the retail FX sector today, as well as having a very avantgarde insight into the future.

The Cyprus Cup was enjoyed and represented by a cross section of senior industry executives from across all sectors, who were welcomed to the Limassol Yacht Club by FinanceFeeds CEO Andrew Saks-McLeod, before the main stage was handed over to Bart Burggraaf, Partner at MediaGroup Worldwide, who delivered a keynote speech on how to position an FX brand in today’s fast moving world, and make the most of digital marketing, and unique value propositions, a matter which is on the minds of every firm in this industry on a continual basis.

Following the keynote speech was over three hours of networking, the Limassol Yacht Club providing suitably salubrious surroundings for business to be conducted between the creme de la creme of the retail industry from across the world.

FinanceFeeds would like to sincerely thank all those who made this event such an enjoyable addition to the annual calendar for executives in the industry, and all those who attended, enjoyed and struck up new relationships, as this is what it is all about.

During the course of the day, FinanceFeeds will publish various montages from the event, for your enjoyment.

See you all next time.
