2016 end of year review
22 December 2016
2016 is coming to an end and it’s been an incredible year. A year filled with market shocks, volatility and one which even inspired our latest eBook – 10 Shocking Lessons Traders Learnt in 2016.
In our 2016 end of year review, the easyMarkets team are reflecting on their year, their accomplishments and passing on their wishes for Christmas and 2017.
Mercedes -Customer Support Manager
Our mission in Customer Support is to help create an exceptional customer journey. Our primary focus for 2016 was training our clients. We worked hard on providing platform tours, one2one sessions and strategy training. This is what our clients needed so this is where we focused our energies. Thank you to our clients for making our year so successful and for making us smile every day!
Elic - Dealing Room Manager
During 2016 our VIP retention managers have helped many of our top traders to get familiar with the newly designed easyMarkets platform and its unique feature dealCancellation. We have also organised various lectures, seminars and online webinars in multiple languages to satisfy a wide range of clients. We are looking forward a fantastic 2017 and wish all our clients a new year as cheerful and happy as they are!
Evdokia - Director of Risk
A year full of surprises is coming to its end and perhaps this is the beauty of the financial markets. At all times, our priority is to keep our clients happy, thus our promises were kept during Brexit, US Elections and the Italian Referendum. Additionally, during 2016 we have developed a great risk management tool for our customers where they can cancel any losing trade within one hour. I wish all our traders a productive 2017 which we anticipate will be even more interesting!
Nina - Business Development Manager Poland
In 2016 we placed a strong emphasis on supporting our traders with the best trading tools and market information in the business. Thanks to our new office located in Warsaw Financial Centre, in 2017 we plan to focus on providing traders with regular, localised events focusing on education and building client relations.
Nikolas – CMO
2016 proved that trading is an activity that revolves and involves the everyday life of all of us. From the outcome of the British EU referendum to the Presidential win of Trump, the most immediate gauge of reality was reflected in the financial markets. Being easyMarkets, our clients had the opportunity to trade these and all other events safely. We look forward to 2017 where we will have many more opportunities to do the same.
Robert - Managing Director APAC
The focus in 2016 was in promoting our risk management tools including dealCancellation to new and existing clients. To that end, we have seen great success particularly in bringing new clients over from other brokers. We look forward to assisting our clients in having a prosperous 2017. Happy New Year!
And the final word goes to easyMarkets CEO Nikos Antoniades
2016 has been filled with surprises for both traders and indeed the team here at easyMarkets. From the shock Brexit announcement, right through to the US presidential election, 2016 has certainly kept us all on our toes. We are proud to have stood by our commitments to traders by maintaining fixed spreads, free guaranteed stop loss, no slippage and negative balance protection. Our team has worked hard to ensure that our friendly, easy and transparent services are readily offered to all clients. We excitedly anticipate the coming year and invite new traders to discover the easyMarkets difference for themselves. Wishing you all the very best for the season and 2017!
From the global team at easyMarkets we wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
