SmarTrade, ATFX roll out BOSS Partnership Program for local traders

April 4, 2023 5:24 p.m.

SmarTrade, one of the pioneers in providing quality financial education in the Philippines, together with ATFX Global, launched a new program to help boost the earning potential of Filipino traders.

The BOSS: Business Opportunity Seminar and Successful Partnership Program is a series of workshops and open-house events that advocates to educate more traders on the different opportunities in online trading and provide them an opportunity to partner with ATFX and join its expansive network of brokers.

The first run of the event held at Marco Polo in Ortigas was attended by more than a hundred participants.

The one-day workshop began with an introduction of the SmarTrade and ATFX partnership.  As the education partner in the Philippines of renowned broker ATFX, SmarTrade pushes for the continuous learning and skills development of Filipino traders by offering free training sessions and one-on-one coaching on online trading.  ATFX makes available its globally-acclaimed trading platform to those who want to put into practice what they have learned from SmarTrade.

“We are passionate about our partnership with ATFX because they have been proactive in supporting us with our mission of spreading awareness and education to help the Filipinos increase and manage their wealth better,” says Joyce Mayo, President & CEO of SmarTrade.

“Through the BOSS program, we hope that we could be a part in providing the Pinoys the right information and through ATFX, a reliable platform on which traders can create more income streams for themselves and their families.”

In order to help the participants, SmarTrade discussed different strategies on efficiently managing and building one’s financial portfolio, and at the same time strategies on how to build a business as an independent trader.

Part of the workshop was a seminar on wealth management conducted by Edwin Saguibo, Head of Learning and Development at SmarTrade. The trading coach with 20 years of experience in the industry covered topics on how to manage one’s wealth, eliminate debts, and increase income streams.

Guest speaker Jabez Kot, ATFX Business Development Manager for Southeast Asia, gave a presentation on the ATFX Community Partners, one of the highlights of the BOSS Partnership Program.

The ATFX Community Partners is a ready-made business package for independent traders or groups who can refer clients to ATFX.  As an introducing broker (IB), you can build another income stream while enjoying exclusive benefits from ATFX such as rebates, access to educational materials, and dedicated support from your own account manager.

Participants of the BOSS Partnership Program can learn effective ways to manage their own IB business which can be tailored to fit one’s lifestyle.  Moreover, they are able to engage with industry experts who have grown their IB business with SmarTrade and ATFX through the years.

Aside from the pilot workshop, a provincial roll out of the BOSS Partnership Program has been initiated to reach more traders across the country.   SmarTrade recently held events at Villa Caceres in Naga City, Marison Hotel in Legazpi City, Seda Hotel at Ayala Center Cebu, and Limketkai Luxe Hotel in Cagayan De Oro.

The BOSS program is a timely opportunity for Filipino traders to expand their knowledge in online trading and take advantage of the many benefits ATFX Global offers.

With this latest collaboration, SmarTrade and ATFX Global continue to provide quality financial education and resources to the Filipino community.  Catch the next the BOSS seminar online on April 21 at 6pm.
