The Silicon Review
“Our world-class infrastructure ensures a trading experience like no other”
Fullerton Markets is an award-winning brokerage firm that provides trading services. The company was founded in 2016 and is based in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Fullerton Markets has been steadily establishing itself as a disruptive force in a fast-developing Forex industry. The company’s ethos has always been the same since its inception, that is, to deliver safety, speed and a robust system that empowers clients to build their own wealth. These principles similarly drive the key milestones that they have set for themselves over the years.
Being in a highly competitive industry means that Fullerton Markets is consistently making efforts to set itself apart from other players in the market, chiefly through innovative and relevant offerings that draw on its deep understanding of customer needs. From educational resources that help clients and partners grow, to mobile-based solutions that cater to on-the-go consumers who look to connect with the brand on a more convenient platform, the brokerage understands that being reactive to the latest developments doesn’t quite cut it anymore. The key to succeeding in a volatile, fast-moving industry is to be proactive, because only then can companies start creating and lead in pushing boundaries.
In conversation with Mario Singh, Founder and CEO of Fullerton Markets
Q. What are some key milestones that Fullerton Markets has accomplished?
Important achievements that we’re proud of and that continue to anchor our growth include the introduction of Fullerton Shield, a triple-level fund safety plan that safeguards client assets. It offers protection in the form of segregated bank accounts for client and corporate funds; an independent custodian protection through Fullerton Custodian; and professional indemnity and crime insurance by Lloyd’s Underwriter. With a multi-level protection plan, our clients benefit from unparalleled safety, allowing them to focus on trading, earning, and growing their business with peace of mind. Fullerton Markets also made the strategic move from New Zealand to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in 2018. Operating under an offshore jurisdiction has ensured that we enjoy a level of flexibility and autonomy that is not accessible in more regulated environments. This has allowed us to maintain our competitive edge and provide our clients with new services and a huge improvement in customer experience. We’ve since been recognized with multiple awards, including Best FX Broker Asia and Best Partnership Program at the 2019 World Finance Awards.
Q. Share with us one of the first major projects undertaken by Fullerton Markets. How successful was it?
Making it easy for our clients to grow their wealth has been a cornerstone of many of our projects. It was with this objective that we launched our copy trading platform, called CopyPip, early on. We recognized the huge demand for copy trading in our main market, Southeast Asia, and the need to make trading even more accessible, primarily by providing a means through which those with little Forex knowledge can earn through profitable trades. With CopyPip, investors can choose from a global network of strategy providers to copy from. At the same time, more skilled traders are given the opportunity to earn by helping less experienced traders replicate their trading strategies. Given the success of this system, we’ve taken steps to further expand its reach and have registered the trademark for CopyPip in several Southeast Asian countries. This will strengthen our branding in the markets we serve, while also bringing us closer to establishing ourselves as one of the most trustworthy and transparent copy trading platforms in the Forex arena.
Q. What key challenge(s) did Fullerton Markets face in its initial years? What can your peers learn from them?
Building a strong team equipped with diverse skills and a growth mindset was perhaps our biggest challenge, and continues to be a priority as the company expands. Recruiting the right people who embody the values that Fullerton Markets prides itself on – passion, excellence, commitment and sustainability – has been important in fuelling our growth and cultivating a work environment that is collaborative, inclusive and inspires individuals to embrace challenges and continually outperform themselves. Industry peers can look to similarly foster a culture which facilitates the sharing of feedback and encourages transparent communication so that team members are aligned on the company’s values and vision – this is crucial to the growth of any company.
Q. Tell us about some of Fullerton Markets’ new offerings that we can expect in the months ahead.
This year will be an especially exciting one for us as we prepare to introduce new products and programs across the region. We’ll be bringing our business and investment summits to a number of big cities as part of efforts to reach out to and educate even more people on making more informed and profitable investment decisions. Similar workshops, to be held across smaller cities, will also cover a range of relevant financial and investment topics to help traders build more confidence in executing trading strategies, scale their business and effectually compete in the financial markets. Another much-anticipated launch will be that of our powerful marketing tool, PipBox, which will give our partners access to regularly updated, quality content and sales funnels so that they can better develop their network and accelerate their business growth. With this tool, users enjoy greater convenience in setting up and running their business and more time to focus on nurturing leads and engaging their audience.
