2011 IBTimes Trading Awards Released - GFT Named Best Forex Education Provider

Global news leader International Business Times (IBTimes.com) announced the results of the 2011 IBTimes Trading Awards in New York City on May 31, 2011.

GFT, a US-based Forex Broker, won 3 awards: Best Forex Education Provider Award, Customer Service - Excellence Award and Forex Broker Japan - Excellence Award.

This year, a total of 30 retail FX broker firms were honored from a pool of 140 brokers nominated by 6,400 traders in 82 countries in 6 languages. The IBTimes Trading Awards offer one of the most comprehensive quantitative and qualitative annual award available for the fast growing retail Forex markets.

The survey was conducted over 6 months from September 2010 and March 2011. All voting was carried out electronically via a secure, dedicated data collection website.

The IBTimes Trading  Awards fall into two major sections, one that recognizes brokers through quantitative measures (or relative market shares) and one through qualitative rankings (or client satisfaction) at the continent and country level.

We are thrilled to accept the award for Best Forex Education Provider, said Gary Tilkin, president and CEO of GFT. At GFT, we have always considered education to be an important part of any trading plan. We know that one of the best ways we can support our customers is by providing them with access to free tools and educational resources that will help them become more informed traders. Thank you IBTimes, and for all those who voted GFT.

About the IBTimes Trading Awards

The 2011 IBTimes Trading Awards identify their findings of the best financial service providers globally. The awards recognize excellence in the quality of the services they offer to traders and investors.

From 2010, readers of The International Business Times have been invited to vote on a range of attributes of the providers they use. The winners in each category are selected based on the votes and a judging panel of industry experts and independent research groups.

The IBTimes Trading Awards builds on the successes of last year's Awards, the 2010 FX Traders' Choice Awards. They were awarded based on the votes of IBTimes' readers collated by Forex DataSource, a Forex market research firm. The goal of the FX Traders' Choice Awards was to empower traders with reliable information and help them select reputable brokers, as traders decided the winners.

This year, the 2011 IBTimes Trading Awards continues to give public recognition to those brokers and financial service providers while increasing the scope of the awards to cover all major asset classes including Funds, ETFs, Stocks, Futures and Options. The awards also reflect The International Business Times' global identity and include votes on financial service providers from around the world that provide services in multiple languages.
