2020 is drawing to a close, and many people might be drawing a sigh of relief. However, for us at MillTechFX it’s been a fantastic year of stellar growth and new opportunities. As we look ahead to 2021, MillTechFX couldn’t be in a better place. Here’s a look back at all the highlights of 2020.
Growth of the team
The company is growing and so is the team. Despite all the problems of lockdown, our staff has grown almost two-fold since January, with over half of this growth in the technology team. We’re also taking advantage of remote working connect with professionals from all sorts of different disciplines to help us achieve our mission.
Our reach is expanding all the time. We’ve gained licenses in a number of new territories including US, Canada, the Nordics, Switzerland and of course mainland Europe. As we move into 2021, we’re responding to growing interest from around the world to add further markets.
While the UK may be exiting Europe, we’re getting back involved. We continue to work on the opening of our French office which is expected to be operational in 2021. It will serve the growing demand for our platform coming from the continent.
Interest from around the world
France could be just one in a number of exciting new ventures. We’ve been contacted by institutions from all over the world including of course multiple European countries, the US & Canada, Mexico, , Argentina, and the Middle East among others. It’s confirmation of what we’ve believed all along, that this is a technology with truly global appeal.
We’ve also had interest from multiple additional counterparties keen to get involved and become part of the platform. Not only does it reinforce the value we offer, but with more and more parties getting involved, it helps us continue to build a better and more effective platform for our clients.
Events and conferences
Lockdown might have made networking more difficult, but we’ve still been working hard at getting the word out. We were delighted to be part of a number of excellent events and webinars including The City of London Corporation’s Investment Management Series, LPGP Connect Events in UK and New York, LPGP Connect Webinar Series and Private Equity International (PEI) Conference Europe.
Launch of the new brand
Last but not least, 2020 was the year we launched our new branding and website. It’s a fresh look for us as we build on the growing interest in our technology and we welcome you to take a look at www.milltechfx.com
At a time when markets are beset by volatility on all sides, every advantage can help. Innovative technology such as ours will be crucial in keeping down costs while maximising performance. We look forward to another year of exciting opportunities in 2021.
We also want to take the opportunity to thank all of our technology and finance partners and our amazing staff who have thrived in this most challenging of years. We wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe holiday season.
