vigorous commitment to serving FX investors around the world. He
cited ongoing upgrades and modifications to the bank's signature
online trading platform, SaxoTrader, and the rollout of new global
offices in Singapore and London to better accommodate the needs of
clients, partners and liquidity providers as signs of its commitment
to serving the needs of FX traders in an increasingly competitive
and borderless market.

Banks are culled from such detailed and precise polling of our
colleagues and clients in the global currency markets," said

preference clear - for FX traders, there is no better bank on the
planet with which to do business than Saxo Bank. This award is a mark
of inestimable pride for us."
