Alpari Grabs Financial Elite of Russia Award for “Company of the Year”

Over the past months we've been preoccupied with informing you about the solid performance of the Russia-based Forex broker Alpari and its efforts to improve its offering, as well as trading terms and conditions. The company's zeal for development has not remained unnoticed from the financial community and last week the brokerage grabbed the prestigious Financial Elite of Russia award in the nomination for “Company of the Year on the Forex market”. Kudos to the winner!
This is the fifth year in a row that Alpari gets the esteemed title, a sign that the Russian financial elite is really recognizing the recent remarkable results delivered by the company. You may remember that the companies operating under the Alpari brand posted record trading volumes of $245 billion in April and that came after exceptional results reached in January, February and March. Behind this robust performance, one can see the broker's strive to pimp up its services to make the FX world closer to as many traders as possible – just a couple of weeks ago the company launched a special app to make the Metatrader 4 (MT4) available to Mac users. You may have also noticed Alpari's strife to educate – the company regularly holds trading seminars.
One more thing that the attendees of the award ceremony highlighted as a unique achievement of Alpari is the policy of the company to publish its annual results: the broker has become the first FX company in Russia to reveal publicly its performance metrics by publishing the figures for 2012. You may see this is as an awkward achievement, but since the Russian FX sector is not regulated by the state yet, the participants in the market are not obliged to make their performance results publicly available.
This said, we should also note that Alpari has shown some tough character in relation to regulation earlier this year – in the end of April it announced its plans to leave the Financial Regulation Agency (FRA, or KROUFR), amid a series of disagreements with the self-regulated organization (SRO). It's still a participant in an SRO, however, being a member of the Center for Regulating OTC Financial Instruments and Technologies (CRFIN). 
As you can see for yourselves, Alpari has had quite a busy time lately, so the award seems to be well deserved. And, as we are discussing the 2013 Financial Elite of Russia Awards, we cannot skip the fact that Alpari's founder and main shareholder Andrey Dashin, who is also a founder of Cyprus-regulated broker FXTM, got an award as well. He was recognized with the prize for "Contributions to the Development of the Forex Market in Russia". 
It's nice to see that hard efforts pay off, and we hope that Alpari will extend its strife for improvement further – a suggested area is customer support, as our challenge has shown that the company has plenty to make up for in that respect.
