“When hard work pays off—it’s a feeling of relief as well as tremendous accomplishment.”

Retail FX and CFD broker OctaFX has won the ‘Best Global Broker Asia 2022’ industry award by International Business Magazine, a Dubai-based publication.

The award ceremony will be held on 29 October 2022 in the Atlantis The Palm hotel resort in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

OctaFX has won more than 50 awards

OctaFX has been collecting awards for years ever, having already won more than 50 since its foundation, including the 2021 ‘Best Forex Broker Asia’ award from Global Banking & Finance Review, the 2021 ‘Best ECN Broker’ award from World Finance, and the ‘Best Mobile Trading Platform 2022’ issued by Forex Brokers Awards.

According to the broker founded in 2011, OctaFX has seen users from 150 countries opening more than 12 million trading accounts, where they have access to educational webinars, articles, and analytical tools for better decision-making when placing trades.

“When hard work pays off—it’s a feeling of relief as well as tremendous accomplishment. Our labour was not in vain; even more, it was appreciated by a very fine magazine that we have cherished and respected since its inception”, said an OctaFX spokesperson.

“We chose OctaFX this year for the most promising investment products, delivering the top of line services to investing clients and partners, and its impressive figures of 12 million trading accounts throughout 150 countries—all of which are a testament to its reliability. Their dedicated and well-intentioned initiatives for financial inclusion across the entire strata of society deserve applause”, said a representative of the International Business Magazine.

The International Business Magazine, which also awarded OctaFX as the ‘Most Secure Broker Indonesia’ this same year, is a research and analytics hub for the financial services and fintech industries.

OctaFX rebranded and cut FX spreads

In its 11th anniversary, OctaFX lowered spreads by 20% on XAUUSD, EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, GBPJPY, USDCHF, XTIUSD, and US30, as well as by 25% on BTCUSD and ETHUSD.

The trading platform has reportedly executed over 1 billion trades since 2011 and has a strong presence on Youtube to offer education material to more than 600,000 traders. The broker has removed swaps for all clients, added 30 cryptoassets, and supports 28 languages.

OctaFX has now decided to rebrand and adopt a fresh new look, with refined colors, space-inspired elements, and a new logo.
