CMC Markets, a leading global provider of online trading, was awarded the title of ‘Ethical Company’ by the daily newspaper Puls Biznesu. The prize reflects CMC Markets’ responsible approach to running a business and shaping customer relationships.
The ‘Ethical Company’ competition is organised by the editors of Puls Biznesu with the support of PwC. It promotes ethical business principles among Polish companies, highlights best practices in the market, and draws attention to the importance of ethical principles in business operations.
In the competition's history, no other CFD broker has been honoured in this way, positioning CMC Markets as an ethical leader in the CFD industry. CMC Markets was one of 26 shortlisted companies up for this year's award.
The awarded title of ‘Ethical Company’ is a confirmation of CMC Markets' commitment to responsible business management, which includes not only relations with its clients, but also with its business partners and employees. CMC Markets strictly adheres to the principle of informing its current and potential clients about the investment risks associated with leveraged CFD trading. This type of trading is intended for conscious and experienced investors, therefore reliable information on the possible financial losses associated with it are important. However, CMC Markets not only provides information about the risks, but also provides educational resources to help individual investors improve their risk management. Since opening offices in Poland two and a half years ago, CMC Markets has already organised 59 seminars with a total attendance of around 3,000 people across the country, as well as numerous webinars.
Łukasz Wardyn, Head of Poland for CMC Markets, commented: "Introducing individual investors to leveraged trading requires a responsible approach. CMC Markets was established nearly 30 years ago and its stable financial position confirms that ethical conduct is key to the long-term success of our clients and commercial activity. That is why transparency, honesty and trust provide the foundation of the relationships we build with our clients."
CMC Markets’ wider commitment to responsible business conduct also applies internally, with emphasis on internal rules and procedures to counteract fraud, not only in Poland, but internationally. The company also adopts responsible treatment of its employees, including respect for diversity and building a culture of cooperation.
