2011 IBTimes Trading Awards Released - IBFX Named Best Forex Broker in Asia
Global news leader International Business Times (IBTimes.com) announced the results of the 2011 IBTimes Trading Awards in New York City on May 31,.
IBFX, one of the industry's leading global providers of online forex trading, won three awards: Best Forex Broker Asia Award, a Forex Customer Service - Excellence Award and a Forex Broker Australia - Excellence Award.
The IBFX group of companies continues to provide customers with trade performance metrics, depicting fast and reliable execution in addition to low spreads. These recognitions further a commitment to transparency while producing the technology traders depend on.
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 the most comprehensive quantitative and qualitative annual award available for the fast growing retail Forex markets.
The survey was conducted over six 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.
As we continue to advance our footprint across the globe, we are beyond grateful to be recognized by the IBTimes for these distinguished awards, said Todd Crosland, Chairman and President of the IBFX group of companies. In an industry dependent on customers' trust, we are proud and honored to offer what we feel is the most transparent and honest pricing found within the FX market. Our personal connection with our customers is what we feel leads us to exemplify these three distinguished awards.

About the IBTimes Trading Awards
The 2011 IBTimes Trading Awards identify 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.
