Rick Steves

“Throughout our 25-year history, we’ve worked hard to ensure that our platform meets the ever-changing needs of traders, whether through transparent pricing, powerful research tools, or dedicated client services.”

OANDA has been named the top broker for Overall Client Satisfaction in Singapore for the second year in a row by Investment Trends, according to the financial services market research firm’s ‘2022 Singapore Leverage Trading Report’.

The report, which is in its thirteenth annual edition, provides a detailed analysis of the trading attitudes, behaviours and needs of Singaporean traders of leveraged financial products. This year’s study was based on an online survey of 2,451 responses from local investors and traders.

Besides accomplishing the highest user satisfaction in Singapore, the online multi-asset CFD broker has won the best Value for Money and Email Customer Service client satisfaction awards.

Phil Waters, CEO of OANDA Asia Pacific, said: “We are honoured to be recognised once again by the Singapore trading community. Throughout our 25-year history, we’ve worked hard to ensure that our platform meets the ever-changing needs of traders, whether through transparent pricing, powerful research tools, or dedicated client services. As such, I believe these awards by Investment Trends clearly acknowledge our ongoing commitment to our clients and our dedication to empowering them to trade smarter.”

According to the Investment Trends report, CFD/FX trader numbers in Singapore are still higher than pre-pandemic and new traders are most often motivated by a desire to learn a new skill and likely to have been prompted to start trading by market volatility and offers.
