Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) November 27, 2013
Pepperstone has been ranked #1 by Global Top-Tier Audit Firm Deloitte in the annual Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia 2013 awards overnight, Winning the Rising Star Category.
Founded in 2010, Pepperstone has created an Optical Fibre network 14 miles from Wall Street in New York connecting the trading floors of 22 of the world’s biggest banks. This interbank network aggregates the FX prices that these banks are quoting for buying and selling currency and then offers the best price to Pepperstone’s clients.
Owen Kerr, Pepperstone CEO said, “Pepperstone winning the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Rising Star award is a great achievement, we are the only Forex Broker to have ever won the award and this validates our commitment to providing revolutionary Forex Trading technology for our clients.”
Now in its thirteenth year, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia 2013 program recognises and profiles Australia’s 50 fastest growing public or private technology companies, based on percentage revenue growth over three years (2011 to 2013).
Joshua Tanchel, leader of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 Program said: “Over the past few years, brand new business models have emerged as a result of the connectivity and level playing field offered by the internet. This year, we continue to see the rapid growth of businesses that could not have existed 10 or even five years ago.”
“The convergence of disruptive, post-digital technologies is changing the ways businesses must respond to individuals’ needs and expectations. Companies like Pepperstone continue to be an inspiration in the way they have achieved rapid growth by exploiting opportunities in brand new markets.”
