The new operation grew out of the firm’s five years of experience developing and delivering best-of-breed digital and print media campaigns for leading FX brokers, technology firms and banks. in which the company’s remit spans the business life-cycle of FX firms from market entry through growth to exit.
The agency will handle all aspects of advertising for companies seeking to reach any segment of the FX market globally. Shift’s comprehensive services include creative design, digital development, media planning and buying, analytics and tracking and email marketing.
“Since inception five years ago, Shift has leveraged our foreign exchange expertise and best practices to plan and execute powerfully effective campaigns for top retail, wholesale and institutional clients,” said Ian McAfee, CEO, Shift Forex LLC. “Our clients tell us Shift’s sole focus on FX and deep consulting engagement within the industry set our media agency work apart from other firms.”
