March 1, 2018
FOREX.com, a Gain Capital brand, has appointed digital agency Croud to support its mission to provide traders with low cost access to over 12,500 foreign exchange markets.
Connecting independent traders to the global currency markets since 2001, FOREX.com operates across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Its parent company, Gain Capital, provides over 140,000 retail and institutional investors with access to OTC and exchange-traded markets through its innovative trading technology and execution services.
Following a competitive RFP process, involving seven agencies, FOREX.com selected Croud as its SEO partner in the US. In a period of exciting growth for FOREX.com, including the development of many new products in 2018, Croud stood out with their innovative approach, proprietary technology and ability to scale internationally. Croud’s multinational reach and experience with brands such as Regus and Franklin Templeton also played a significant role given Gain Capital’s presence across three continents.
Croud will be supporting FOREX.com to:
- Implement SEO strategy focused on US growth
- Assist launch of new products in 2018
- Coordinate SEO efforts between the UK and US
- Validate FOREX.com as the forex trading leader in the US
