LONDON, August 16, 2012 “” OANDA Corporation, provider of innovative online foreign exchange trading services, has won the “Best Global Forex Broker” title at the prestigious 2012 IBTimes Trading Awards, for the second year running.

Tony Savor, the company’s Chief Technology Officer, believes the award win demonstrates that traders appreciate OANDA’s transparency and ethical business model.

“Our primary focus at OANDA has always been to provide traders with the best possible trading experience. Engineering excellence, price transparency, and a commitment to customer satisfaction make OANDA one of the most respected players in the market. These and our ongoing commitment to technological innovation are the characteristics we believe have made us the Best Global Forex Broker two years in a row,” said Savor.

The 2012 IBTimes Trading Awards were decided by an independent team of editors at International Business Times, based on a survey collected over six months that polls readers about their trading experiences. Participants were asked to rank their broker’s speed of execution, trading platform performance, the quality and reliability of their finance departments, as well as their overall satisfaction with their broker.

“Our goal with the IBTimes Trading Awards has been to empower traders with additional insight and help them make more informed trading decisions,” says Etienne Uzac, co-founder and CEO of International Business Times. “Given our knowledge of the industry, we realise that traders value reassurance from the brokers they work with. Our Trading Awards address the needs of traders by awarding brokers based on feedback from the industry.”
