OANDA, a global leader in online multi-asset trading services, was awarded top broker by its US client base in several categories in the annual Investment Trends’ 2016 US Foreign Exchange Report. In the survey of more than 8800 investors, OANDA was granted “Highest Overall Client Satisfaction” and "Best Value for Money”

“We are thrilled to be acknowledged for the services and products that we develop for our clients and this research validates our success on many fronts,” says Drew Izzo, OANDA’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We are a technology driven leader and committed to providing the best possible trading experience with a focus on execution speed, strong risk management strategies and a policy of never re-quoting or rejecting trades. This month, we will complete the global roll out of our new v20 trading engine. Offering 370% faster execution speed than our current system with less than 1.5 millisecond execution times, v20 includes updated features such as depth of market and enhanced order types. This is the most extensive update to our trading engine since we launched in 2001 and highlights our commitment to continually improving our trading technology.”

In addition to receiving awards for “Highest Overall Client Satisfaction” and “Best Value for Money”, OANDA also achieved the highest client ratings for roll over rates/swap fees, consistency of executing trades at rate quoted, commissions, execution speed and reliability, reporting for positions and transactions, and platform ease of use by US-based traders.
