BDSwiss Group 7th annual kick-off meeting was concluded with great success on February 28th, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, in Limassol, Cyprus. The flawlessly-organised event was attended by more than 200 employees from BDSwiss’ global offices, company shareholders and guest speakers. As customarily, the Group’s meeting was composed of a series of speeches and presentations by senior management who shared BDSwiss’ key 2019 achievements and metrics as well as their collective vision on future performance and further business expansion to new and existing regions.
With an impressive database of more than 1.2 million registered users, BDSwiss has upped its expansion efforts in 2019 by inaugurating 5 new offices in regions including South East Asia and Latin America, while also nearly doubling its global workforce to accommodate the notable influx in the number of active traders. More specifically, there was a 225% increase in the total number of active traders in 2019, while the Group reported seeing a 217% increase in trading volume during 2019, in comparison to 2018. According to data presented, the Group’s partner network also significantly expanded with an increase of 70% in Affiliate and IB partners.
As for the year ahead, BDSwiss’ 2020 plans focus on global expansion through a multi-step process. Starting from the employee level, BDSwiss has committed to invest in continuous training, career development and interdepartmental communication which will lead to improved workflows and operational excellence. On a larger scale, the Group plans to further extend its partner network through competitive payouts and a highly localised approach.
BDSwiss Group CEO, Alexander W. Oelfke commented during the meeting:
“2019 was our year, we’ve seen immense growth and expansion and we couldn’t have done it without the dedication, loyalty and commitment of our global teams and partners. Our stellar performance in 2019 reinforces that we are on the right trajectory – taking full advantage of our company’s strengths and strong partner arsenal to push for further expansion and establish BDSwiss as one of the leaders in its field, as well as diversify our services and products on a Group Level”
The Group’s annual kick-off meeting is seen as an opportunity for new and existing employees to get together, network and be informed about the company’s latest achievements, innovations and product enhancements as well as ongoing projects and initiatives. Getting to hear from each department, gives BDSwiss’ Global teams a clear view of the company’s broader objectives and can make interdepartmental alignment much more efficient. Emphasizing on the importance of communication and collaboration, BDSwiss Group has introduced a keynote speaker at the conclusion of the meeting, who gave the audience a unique set of communication tools through a series of interactive exercises. Taking the opportunity to celebrate the BDSwiss brand’s 8 year anniversary, the kick-off meeting was followed by a company gala dinner.
