A new year, a new era of innovation, and in the fast-moving FX industry, those at the cutting edge who are not content with simply going through the motions and emulating their peers before heading home at the end of the working day will likely reveal yet more industry-changing developments.

To give an insight into the personality, charisma and just what makes such things happen, FinanceFeeds met with some of the movers and shakers of the industry for an open and casual discussion on what the industry is likely to look like, with a splash of comedy for those who appreciate.

Today, in this episode of Movers & Shakers, Co-Founder & CEO of FX and CFD education firm TradingHD Neria Konrad looks at her company’s professional prowess.

What’s new?

Our main motivating force has always been offering the right support and knowledge to help anyone succeed in trading or investing. With this in mind, TradingHD was launched in the summer of 2015 by hedge fund manager Lex van Dam and iBus Media Ltd. Its key aim was to bring together some of the world’s most inspiring and experienced traders and finance experts, so that they could all share their knowledge and expertise via one online learning platform.

Having received a lot of positive feedback from our industry colleagues, we have also now launched our Affiliate Program. It allows our approved partners to rely on us when it comes to their clients’ education, and we also take care of all the technical and administrative work managing such partnerships.

In addition, TradingHD is continuously innovating. If you haven’t subscribed yet to our blog or joined our free monthly webinars ‘Markets in Real Time’ series, it’s time to!

“2016 is going to be a year that revolutionizes the trading education industry – Neria Konrad, CEO, TradingHD”

To sum up, 2016 is going to be a year that revolutionizes the trading education industry. We are leading the way in the move from rather poor educational resources prepared by marketers looking to sell a financial product under the innocent name of ‘education’, to professional unbiased trading and investment education providers who make their resources accessible to retail traders.

I also see that there has never been a more serious focus in the industry on financial education than there is now. With more and more financial institutions and brokerage houses offering their clients unbiased third party education (it is no longer just about offering clients the cutting edge technology and dedicated customer support), I am positive that this will be a good year for TradingHD and our partners.

OK, so nobody is perfect. What is the biggest thing you can improve on from last year?

It is always about consistency: last year, this year, or next year. Every day we come to work to improve the business and ourselves – hoping for the best.

What is the funniest thing or incident that happened in the office last year? Any cringe or epic fail moments?

Ho ho ho! Santa Claus and with PRESENTS:) visited our team just before New Year! Don’t forget to be good, because Santa has a long list to check twice before next Christmas is upon us!

If we are sitting here in one year from now discussing what you as a company have achieved in 2016, what do you hope to be the big achievements?

We have built a great team and a great product. This year is about further educational tools and platform innovation as well as delivering premium customer support, working with our expert educators and partners to offer the best and most convenient educational resources to our customers and followers.

If your company morphed into a super-hero or animal in 2016; what would it be?

We are all dog lovers! Cooperation, listening to each other, fun in-house, determination to achieve results, and loyalty are the values we share as a team and individually.
