Swiss FX market place Dukascopy Bank has passed a milestone, turning ten years old yesterday.
In the ever-evolving world of retail FX, ten years is a veritable lifetime, and the company has experienced substantial advancements, especially in the area of technology.
Furthermore, during the last decade, the company has become a bank, established 7 foreign offices, and received a European brokerage license. Dukascopy Bank then extended its range of products from FOREX to CFD and binary options, all of which use a dedicated, in-house developed proprietary platform.
With an end-to-end, enterprise brokerage white label solution combining leading technology with the security of a Swiss bank, the SWFX solution has become synonymous with high liquidity and Swiss reliability. Nowadays, more than 30 large financial institutions use SWFX through Dukascopy Bank’s white-label program.
Dukascopy has become a social and information flagship by creating its own financial TV, broadcasting in 7 languages, and getting upwards of 2 million views a month, with LeapRate’s Daily FX Industry Catch Up a major feature. Dukascopy community is the largest social network for traders, offering plenty of contests with a yearly prize fund of $1,200,000.
As a corporate entity, Dukascopy Bank considers that it has become a family which encompasses all manner of shrewd investors, brokerages and appreciators of high quality technology.
Yesterday evening, LeapRate attended the Dukascopy Geneva Forex Event, which indeed represented another milestone for the company, in that over 700 high-caliber guests attended, including hedge fund managers, high net worth investors and venture capital moguls, whose attention was focused on the potential business opportunities which were punctuated by a Gucci fashion show and Miss Dukascopy beauty contest, marking out Geneva as one of the most prestigious locations worldwide in which to conduct business among the upper echelons of the FX industry.
