FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

TopFX is immensely proud of what it accomplished in 2022, a year of global expansion, growth and progression.

They participated in over ten expositions in several countries, including United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Greece, Thailand, Italy, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Jordan, and Beirut. They also took home five awards and expanded their international teams and global presence by opening three new offices and hiring new country managers to be more responsive to their client’s needs.

They find great importance in attending different expos and events as a business. According to TopFX’s CEO Alex Katsaros, “participating in events in Dubai, Egypt, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Thailand, Greece, Italy, and other countries is a testament to our company’s commitment to growth and expansion. Building a presence in so many different places takes effort and dedication, but the rewards can be significant. Our company is positioning itself for long-term success and a bright future by establishing connections and building relationships with people in these countries.”

At the iFX Expo in Dubai, Alex Katsaros presented a workshop on the essential components of running a successful CFD brokerage. The iFX Expo International was also an exciting event for them since it took place in Limassol, Cyprus, where their headquarters are. Another iFX Expo took place in Bangkok, Thailand, where Alex Katsaros ran a workshop on ‘How to Keep Traders Engaged and Actively Trading’, and there was a large turnout. 

At the Smart Vision Forex Summit, Alex Katsaros was named one of the ‘Middle East 50 most influential people in Global Financial Markets’. Another award given to TopFX was the second consecutive victory in the Global Forex Awards category for ‘Best Client Trading Experience’, which aligns with the company’s motto, “When our customers are happy, we’re happy.” 

Additionally, CEO Alex Katsaros and Italy country manager Constantinos Zenonos attended the prestigious IT Forum in Rimini, Italy, which focused on trading in the emerging era of digital finance. Another Italian event attended was Investing Roma, the country’s most well-known financial exhibition, where Constantinos Zenonos met attendees and gained insightful feedback. 

Furthermore, their executive team, including CEO Alex Katsaros, Head of Retention Rachelle Matta, and Global Head of Sales & BD Omar Al-Janabi, had the chance to network with hundreds of attendees and exchange industry insights at the Forex Expo, another event in Dubai. Nearly 9,000 attendees eager to learn more about the financial sector showed up in large numbers. TopFX centred its main message on its cTrader offering and how the platform’s unique features can aid clients in their trading.

Smart Vision Investment in Egypt held the ‘Top 50 in the Financial Markets’ award ceremony, and TopFX received the ‘Best Prime Trading Broker’ award. Additionally, Alex Katsaros received the CEO of the Year award as he was instrumental in the firm’s institutional and retail divisions and TopFX’s international expansion in numerous markets.

The Traders Fair in Vietnam was held in HCMC, where Alex Katsaros, and the country manager of Vietnam, Ngo Thi Lien, spoke about all the advantages of trading with TopFX. Additionally, as part of their ongoing efforts to expand internationally, they opened a new office in Vietnam to network with Asian clients and better understand their market demands. 

The last event they attended this year was the Wiki Finance Expo in Hong Kong. TopFX cTrader received the ‘Best Copy Trading Platform in Asia’ award for its advanced features and functionalities. In addition, Alex Katsaros participated in the panel ‘2023 Market Outlook: From Monetary Tightening to Recession Risks’, where he shared his insights with the participants.

In addition to the events attended, they also held workshops and seminars to further communicate the mission of their business to prospective investors and partners. These were primarily held in Greece, like Larissa, Thessaloniki, and Athens, with manager Vasileios Tsaprounis, as well as in Dubai with Omar Al-Janabi, who is responsible for the company’s global business development. By overseeing TopFX’s business development, Omar Al-Janabi helped the company grow by hiring new business developers in countries like Mexico, Uruguay, the United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, and China. He stated, “my task was to identify high-potential regions and build teams to drive our company’s growth. When attempting a worldwide expansion, it’s important not to lose track of regional needs and client preferences. That’s why we hired locally-based Country Managers and Business Developers who are attuned to the demands of their respective markets.”

Lastly, TopFX has been optimising operational processes, enhancing its product line and reducing its spreads by 30%. Their main objective is to create a seamless trading experience that functions efficiently from everywhere in the world. Moreover, due to their new partner-focused CRM, they have doubled in size in one year, and this significant accomplishment is a testament to their hard work and dedication. Alex Katsaros expressed, “as we look back on the past year, we are proud of the hard work and dedication that has gotten us to where we are today. In addition, we are grateful for the support of our customers, partners, and employees, who have helped us to achieve this success. Looking forward, we will continue to work hard to maintain our growth and stay true to our values of honesty, integrity, and fairness. ”
