Gold-i has been crowned the Southern Tech Future Star 2017 in a prestigious award scheme which is open to all technology companies in the South of England with a turnover of up to £10m.
David Murray, Managing Director and Publisher of The Business Magazine, who presented the award said, “Gold-i has grown impressively and is continuing to disrupt the retail FX industry. It is a truly global software company, with its own IP and a constant focus on product innovation.”
The judges were impressed by Gold-i’s success to date and future potential – particularly after having set up an office China in order to maximise opportunities in Asia. They were also impressed by Gold-i’s previous award successes - particularly being the first FinTech company to win a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation and that CEO, Tom Higgins, has won a number of awards for his leadership.
Tom Higgins adds, “There was significant competition for this award as it was open to innovative, fast growth technology companies across all sectors in the South of England. I am thrilled that Gold-i was selected as the winner and that the judges recognise our growth potential. We will continue to push boundaries in the industry in order to help brokers to thrive in their local markets.”
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.
