OANDA has been named the world’s Best Retail FX Platform at the prestigious e-FX awards, which are presented by leading industry publication FX Week each year.

Vatsa Narasimha, President & CEO of OANDA Corporation, said, “We are truly honoured to receive this distinguished award, which recognises our ongoing commitment to better serving our clients. Over the course of our 22-year history, we’ve worked hard to meet the ever-changing needs of our clients through enhancements to our institutional-grade trading platform, cutting-edge trading tools, advanced charting solutions and award-winning educational material.

Now in its 15th year, the 2018 e-FX Awards recognise excellence, innovation and superior customer service in foreign exchange, focusing on quality rather than quantity and traded volumes. The winners are decided by a panel of industry experts.
