Resources We Trust
Over the past few years we have had extensive experience working with a number of different companies within the trading industry. For the most part we have had a pretty average experience, however from time to time we come across a company that really impresses us with their offering. When we come across such an organisation, after necessary due diligence we are happy to give them our seal of approval. On this page we have shared some of the companies we trust and believe bring value to the trading industry. First, what do we look for and what should you look for in a company:
- Regulation – If a company or organisation will be handling your money, they must have adequate regulation.
- Customer Satisfaction – We always want to see that a company has produced a satisfactory customer experience.
- Responsiveness– It is essential that when you need to speak to someone, you can do so quickly.
- Service Transparency – A provider of any service should be open and transparent about their offering, and how they benefit from your custom.
- Service Quality – It goes without saying, the offering must be one of a high standard.
Disclaimer:Our statement of trust in these organisations and their services should not be taken as a recommendation or advice.
