For us it is a great honor to be awarded the Best Forex Bank in Eastern Europe. We have been working hard to become one of the best FOREX brokers in the Russian Federation and the CIS countries.
According to the market statistics observers during the last five year we have gained reputation as the most reliable and efficient FOREX broker in Russia. Moreover, we managed to go beyond the borders in the pursuit of excellence in Europe and other regions. For example we are quite successful in Israel. We are positioning ourselves as the only one purely banking FOREX broker in Russian Federation. We work closely together with one of the leading Russian banks Alfa Bank which provides liquidity support for our operations. We are very proud that clients trust us, and this is the best reward we could ever have. Unfortunately, Forex market was harmed by many unscrupulous brokers and our primary goal now is to restore confidence in the FOREX market in general. We undertake numerous educational programs in this field and also support inexperienced traders with basic fundamental and technical analysis. For experienced traders we prepare more sophisticated support packages, i.e. trading signals or even 24-hour real-time customer support. Why banking FOREX is so important for restoring confidence in the FOREX market in Russia? First of all, we wanted to give our clients direct access to the global interbank market. Under these conditions they could trade without additional fees. Minimum spreads is another advantage for our customers. Not to mention the instant money withdrawal. Access to the best banking services makes the whole process comfortable and dynamic. Alfa-Forex is a part of the Alfa banking conglomerate and this makes it easier for clients to perform operations. We are working constantly on the development of our products while giving investors multiple accesses to the market. We are pioneering new trading technologies in Russia. Our dealing service is one of the best in this sphere. We are constantly introducing new products, not only a variety of CFD’s but also analytical and other trading support tools. We have been among the first companies on the market to implement the new trading platform MT 5. We are also offering our clients an access to different markets, not only to FOREX. We know that this award will encourage us to keep on our dynamics and further perfect our service.”
