Interview: FX technology should encompass culture, scalability and multi-faceted leadership

Empowering leaders, delegating responsibility and encouraging a culture of innovation and leadership throughout a company is the key to successful growth says Gold-i CEO Tom Higgins in a TV interview from the firm’s Guildford head office.

There are just a handful of specialist software companies which provide FX platform integration, liquidity management and business intelligence solutions to the retail FX industry, and those which do are a linchpin for the entire business structure worldwide, connecting retail traders to Tier 1 liquidity, allowing brokers to manage risk, and forging continued evolution which has enabled retail traders to gain a similar experience to professionals in the trading desks of the world’s major financial centers, for a fraction of the cost.

Due to its very important and specific nature, the technological infrastructure which powers the world’s entire electronic trading ecosystem needs to be built around the needs of brokers, regulators and traders in multiple jurisdictions and allow the execution and risk management of multiple assets in live markets.

Scalability, constant development and a pragmatic business culture are key aspects, and to gain further introspective, in this video, Gold-i CEO Tom Higgins elaborated on how 2019 will look, and what leaders of the industry need to focus on when their business grows.
