Creating a Strong Corporate Culture of Compliance

Creating a Strong Corporate Culture of Compliance

With the Forex industry being at the forefront of international transactions and the rapid digitalisation of investment services, the online financial services sector has witnessed unprecedented growth over the past decade or so. At the very dawn of the finance industry, the need for regulatory oversight was immediate and unequivocal. In fact, the financial services sector has undergone a series of sweeping reforms driven by regulatory developments and continued consolidation in the industry. Stricter regulations by supervisory authorities, such as the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), and the enforcement of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) have made compliance a strong mandate for Forex brokers.


Compliance and regulation are – and should be – regarded as a broker’s strong suit. At BDSwiss, we are driven by a culture of transparency when it comes to compliance, as we believe it constitutes a strong customer value proposition. Ensuring that our clients’ best interests are safeguarded by solid regulation and firm compliance processes only reinforces our longstanding reputation as a trusted global group of financial services companies. Ultimately, BDSwiss seeks to give clients much more than quality trading conditions; our traders can enjoy peace of mind knowing that they’re trading with a multi-regulated and transparent broker that not only complies with regulatory requirements across different regions but also safeguards its clients’ best interests.


In truth, efforts to address compliance requirements alone do not equip institutions with all the tools necessary to achieve sustainable business growth, while also navigating industry-altering crises. Leading institutions such as BDSwiss go beyond securing regulatory requirements to follow a fully integrated ERM approach that ties risk management to the strategic business planning process.


Compliance, risk management and transparent governance are an integral part of our business strategy, enabling us to mitigate all risks, ensure operational continuity, provide a stable working environment for our employees and take confident business decisions that help us guarantee an unparalleled trading experience for our clients. More importantly, our commitment to maintaining the highest compliance standards means that our brand’s reputation is elevated in the eyes of traders and potential investors. On that note, we are pleased to announce that our commitment to offering the highest quality of service has once again been confirmed, with the recent acquisition of the ISO 9001:2015: “Quality Management System” certification, which marks an important milestone for BDSwiss Holding Ltd. We’ve also very recently attained the ISO/IEC 27001:2013: “Information Security Management System” which makes BDSwiss one of the first financial FX and CFDs services firms on the island to acquire these certifications. 


At BDSwiss, we take pride in having established a strong culture of integrity and transparency that goes beyond compliance. We understand that maintaining a solid reputation and building future success as a group of financial services companies depends on our employees’ steadfast commitment to our shared ethical values and code of conduct. Ultimately, our commitment to building a strong culture of compliance that transcends corporate silos to cultivate an intrinsic sense of personal responsibility, ownership and accountability in all employees, is what enables us to inspire trust in our clients, regulators and stakeholders.
