Gold-i has been selected as one of three finalists in the Southern Tech Future Stars awards, which is open to all technology companies in the South of England with a turnover of up to £10m.
The company, based at Surrey Research Park, is the only Surrey-based organisation to have been shortlisted for this accolade.
Since its launch in 2009, Gold-i has experienced rapid growth and now has over 150 clients worldwide and offices in the UK, China, Japan and Turkey. The specialist trading technology company develops all its software in-house, with a focus on helping retail FX brokers using MetaTrader – the world’s most popular FX trading platform – to make more money, cut costs, reduce risk and differentiate from competitors.
Tom Higgins, CEO, Gold-i comments, “There is a huge amount of tech innovation across all sectors in the South of England and we are delighted that Gold-i has been recognised as one of just three Tech Future Stars for the region.
“Gold-i has had a particularly successful year, with the opening of our Shanghai office and the launch of a range of new products which push boundaries in the industry. We have ambitious growth plans, particularly in South East Asia, and have set up strong foundations to capitalise on the opportunities in the Far East moving forward. Our focus remains on product innovation combined with high client service levels in order to continue to lead the market.”
David Murray, Editor of The Business Magazine, which organises the Southern Tech 100 awards, adds, “The judges were impressed by Gold-i because it is a fast-moving, expanding company with its eye on markets well beyond Europe. In the post-Brexit era, such innovative companies will help boost the UK economy and show that we are thinking globally.”
