  FXCM Scores Highest Client Satisfaction in Australia

Business Wire

SYDNEY -- March 19, 2013

Global foreign exchange broker, FXCM (NYSE: FXCM), is Australia’s preferred FX
provider for its overall quality of service according to Investment Trends
Forex Report 2012.

The report shows that FXCM has maintained its lead overall in a majority of
individual service areas voted trader’s favourite when it comes to customer
service, education, trading platform features and research tools.

According to FXCM Australia Managing Director, Jessica Beckstead, FXCM has
always been very focused on providing high quality support and resources.

“We pride ourselves on our customer centric approach and are very pleased that
in this competitive marketplace traders appreciate our service and value added
offerings. We are excited for the rollout of new and improved educational
products in 2013 that our traders will benefit from,” Ms Beckstead said.

According to Investment Trends, the three reasons traders use FXCM are
reliability and features of the platform, customer service and charting tools.

The report shows that the Australian FX market is very fragmented with no
provider having more than 20 per cent market share and the two top providers,
FXCM being one of them, controlling 29 per cent of primary relationships.

It also highlights that the number of retail FX traders in Australia held up
well despite a fall in market volatility compared to the previous year and
that 53,000 traders is relatively large compared to other countries.

Trading FX/CFDS on margin carried a high level of risk and may result in a
loss of some or all of your deposited funds.
