The end of 2016 is nigh. A massive year of growth at FinanceFeeds. A big thank you to you all

FinanceFeeds has had a big year and with 2016 coming to a close, we’d like to thank you all for your support!

2016 has been a very interesting year indeed for the FX industry, both institutional and retail.

There has been a massive growth in the prime of prime brokerage sector, and some ingenious methods of distributing liquidity and ensuring that the electronic trading firms that continue to strive toward maintaining the very best execution model can do so, despite the Tier 1 banks having applied substantial restrictions on the extension of credit to OTC firms.

Initiative such as this is what makes this industry so interesting, and what stands its leaders out as absolute an absolute pinnacle of forward thinking development, and for that, we can look back at a year of dedicated thought process, innovation and downright smart business process.

For FinanceFeeds, this has been a fabulous year of engagement and growth, and for that we would like to sincerely extend our gratitude to those in all sectors of this industry that read our research, reporting, editorials and news, and to those who continue to engage with us on specific subjects that require detailed discussion and publication to an astute audience that is at its absolutely most discerning.

We are close to our 2,000th post, and have attracted 1,000 very constructive comments to the articles, all of which makes serving the FX industry and being able to engage and make a difference absolutely worthwhile.

Scroll through the pictures using the arrows for highlights of the year!

FinanceFeeds extends a heartfelt thanks to all who supported us during our inauguration and continue to do so, as we are now over one and a half years in establishment and have the dedicated engagement of the vast majority of all sectors of this industry, as well as a news-orientated audience in our Google News listings.

Research, reporting and interactive editorial which ensures that those in the senior level positions in this business can gain transparent insight into what is current and important, on a detailed scale, in order that critical business decisions can be backed up with real and accurate research. Your support and continual engagement is very greatly appreciated.

We view the ability to meet with the industry’s movers & shakers to be vital for all, as after all, despite its digital nature, this is a relationship business through and through.

FinanceFeeds is committed to engagement and ensuring that important topics are explored in detail, and will continue to grow in 2017 which will be a further period of strength for us.
