Whichever type of brokerage your business decides to open, it is not an easy industry and you need to know how to navigate obstacles. Last time we have provided few preliminary insights into what opening a forex broker actually means, and the challenges awaiting. There are a number of models available (for example franchise, white label, or full brokerage), each with different advantages and with unique challenges. Here we will discuss how you can meet these challenges, in order to optimise your capabilities.
All About You
Your brokerage is also your business. As such, you need to ensure the correct people are in their appropriate position within the confines of your business’ hierarchy. The best people are those with the proven ability to take your business to a higher level, and if you are able to motivate them, in return they’ll push your entire business to new heights.
It’s common for business owners and management to not fully understand the importance of a comprehensive training progamme. It’s important to know that high quality training is an essential ingredient to ensuring a company is able to function at its highest possible capacity.

Training shouldn’t be just a one-off session. A good training programme is designed to ensure your team understands all the elements of a new system and is a crucial element to securing your brokerage’s’ success, and should be ongoing to continually support your business.
At UFXPartners, we schedule training days with our partners to ensure your company receives all of the benefits of our first-class training programmes. We arrange training both on-site and in our own head offices, so you can see first-hand how a professionally organised training programme can maximise productivity.
New clientele are the life-blood of your business. As a business owner, you need to make sure you are continually attracting new clientele to your business, while simultaneously supporting your existing clientele.
In order to be a successful brokerage, you continuously need to attract more clients to your firm. To do so, you need to employ lead generation experts. Lead generation experts ensure you get only the best quality leads for the best price.
These employees will serve as some of your most important ones. While continuously converting new clients looks good, businesses often find themselves failing to retain said clients. That’s why customer retention is more often than not, an even more important part of manging a brokerage than lead generation.
retention tend to be more important than generating leads
