FxPro Financial Services Ltd (FxPro), a leading global retail broker in FX and CFDs, was presented with the ‘Special Exports Award for Services’, at the prestigious Cyprus Export Awards 2009 - a ceremony attended by the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Demetris Christofias, representatives from all sectors of the Cyprus Government and the island’s leading international businesses.
The award was presented to Charalambos Psimolophitis, Executive Director and Finance Director of FxPro at the Hilton Park Hotel by the Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism, Antonis Paschalides. Also in attendance at the island’s most important business awards were the President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Manthos Mavrommatis, and the President of the Selection Committee of Cyprus Exports Awards, Panayiotis Loizides.
The award recognised the professional excellence with which FxPro has grown worldwide and, with it, the reputation of Cyprus as a home to top international businesses. The forex company was also recently awarded top honour of ‘Forex Provider of the Year’ at the prestigious FT Investors Chronicle Awards 2010.
FxPro has recently seen significant growth of both its services portfolio and its geographic footprint, resulting today in a diverse customer base across more than 140 countries. It has shown great innovation in building its global profile, by leveraging such major ongoing sports sponsorships as Aston Villa FC, Fulham FC and the World Rally Championship (WRC).
Charalambos Psimolophitis commented:
“FxPro is proud to have been recognised by the President, the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism and the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce. This award perfectly crowns a 2010 period, during which our trading volumes grew by over 20% - from $440 billion in 2009 to over $530 billion in 2010 - and we realised a net profit growth of over 50% on 2009.”
