CEO’s Message

Welcome to LeapRate. We are pleased to be at your service, helping you make more informed decisions in choosing the right online trading firm.

Our goal is to help our readers make sense of the world of online trading, and the multitude of choices investors now have. To this end, we are pleased to present our readers with several tools:

  • LeapRate’s Forex Industry Report, a detailed review of the industry including market overview (markets by size, region, product, client type…), regulatory review, list of financings and M&A transactions in the sector over the past few years, and a list of leading Forex firms and their trading volumes.
  • LeapRate’s Approved List of online Forex firms. Firms on the Approved List, in our view, properly fulfill required standards in the areas of regulation, pricing, trade execution, size and financial strength, technology / trading platform, and customer service. We strongly recommend that you trade ONLY with firms on this list.
  • Forex Industry News, providing interesting insights and analysis into happenings in the sector.
  • LeapRate’s Forex Classifieds, including the Forex Yellow Pages and Forex Executive Search, a valuable resource where you can see everything Forex related, from software/IT firms specializing in Forex solutions to regulatory experts to the latest jobs available in the Forex world.

Much of the insight we have into the various Forex firms comes from the customers of those firms. We welcome you to help us rate the Forex firms by completing our brief rating survey. Or conversely, send us your general comments and feedback – you can see recent comments we’ve received on the User Comments page of the website.

We are fortunate at LeapRate to have on staff some great analytical talent. Our analysts all have real-world experience at some of the world’s leading financial institutions, such as S&P, Moody’s, McKinsey & Co., Lone Star Funds, UBS, Bear Stearns and Merrill Lynch, where I personally spent a good part of my Wall Street investment banking career.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if we can be of assistance to you.

Always at your service,

Gerald Segal
