We will continue to lead the market with superior technology. We will continue to grow rapidly in Asia through our offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai. We will continue to develop technology and partnerships that make finance stronger and healthier. We are building the future, and for this- there’s no better place in the world than China.” – Itai Damti, CEO APAC, Leverate
Leverate marked its two year presence in China with an evening ceremony at Naked Hub with approximately 50 people in attendance.
In two years Leverate has made rapid strides in its development and expansion in the APAC region. A prominent indication of this is the expanding size of the team which now includes offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong, dedicated customer service, sales, marketing and administrative departments, whom combined serve more than fifty brokers.
Commenting on the anniversary, Itai Damti, managing director of APAC Leverate, thanked his guests for joining “our big Asia team” in celebrating “a great milestone in our journey”. Leverate is a world leader in building the future of trading technologies, with 160 employees in six offices worldwide.
In the three years that Damti has been present in China establishing Leverate’s presence, he enthuses that he has been feeling lucky. “I can observe China’s massive journey into leadership in technology. In just a few years, China has become a world leader. Not only in high speed trains and airports, but also an inspiring place for the digital economy. The story of Leverate in China is a symbol and reminder for this great China story”.
Present at the ceremony was Mr. Ido Rozenman, Trade Officer from Israel’s Consular General Office in China. Mr. Rosenman congratulated Leverate in a speech that acknowledged the company’s achievements and commented that he hoped to see many other Israeli companies following in Leverate’s footsteps as he hopes a more intimate partnership will emerge between the two nations.
Towards the evening’s conclusion, General Manager of Leverate China, Andy Zhang recalled a difficult start of being alone to combat and penetrate into a resistant to market to now emerging as a burgeoning team.
He attributed this success to fostering a large network of media and publicity partners who have promoted Leverate’s presence and product recognition. Zhang said that for technology companies, there is no perfect product, only better products. In this light, he wanted to give his thanks firstly, to customers, through who’s feedback Leverate has been able to improve its offerings and secondly to Leverate’s staff for diligently providing a quality service to each customer.
Where does that leave Leverate’s ambitions to grow in the next ten years? Damti’s response was fast in coming “We will continue to lead the market with superior technology. We will continue to grow rapidly in Asia through our offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai. We will continue to develop technology and partnerships that make finance stronger and healthier. We are building the future, and for this- there’s no better place in the world than China.”
Damti concluded that “our Leverate China story is to continue dedicating our efforts to fulfill our earliest aspirations of when we first entered the Chinese market- to help more brokers grow”.
