Forex broker Admirals has experienced an eventful first quarter in 2021. Not only has the group quietly and efficiently changed its branding to a shorter, punchier version, evolved from the original name Admiral Markets, but the broker has also picked up several prestigious awards during the first quarter of the year.
The broker is no stranger to awards, having received sixty-five in total since the firm’s inception in 2012. Admirals picked up its first awards in 2013 from Smart Investor for its beginner and experienced forex trader service.
These early breakthroughs and recognition helped steer a course based on education, analysis, and customer service levels, standards of excellence which have remained in place today.
Admirals have received five awards so far in 2021, and two were for best broker. However, it’s within education and analysis areas where the firm has received recent validation for its expertise.

• Spain – Best Financial Education in 2021, Tutrader.com.
Amongst all the features available in Admirals’ education centre, two courses stand out that have proven to be extremely popular amongst its growing community of traders: Zero to Hero and Forex 101. These unique courses may have encouraged the judges to vote in favour of Admirals.
Zero to Hero
Zero to Hero offers to educate novice traders within a twenty-day window. The purpose is to take a person with little industry knowledge and make them competent within the twenty days.
The course covers everything from the initial platform set up to live trading the markets using the MetaTrader platforms. Registration is free, and several analysts are available to contact during each step of the process. You get 20 video sessions, Q&A, one live trading session and a trading strategy, all from one easy to access section on the website.
Admirals have built on the success of Zero to Hero with their Forex 101 course. Forex 101 aims to educate novice, intermediate and advanced level traders in three specific trading levels. The first three lessons are accessible to all, and even demo account holders can access the nine video lessons.
Available in 18 different languages, the course caters for the Admirals’ global audience. Two leading industry experts tutor clients through the interactive trading course, and to make sure the students are paying attention, each lesson has a quiz.
The courses complete a comprehensive education offering from the broker; the E-books, tutorials, videos, webinars, and seminars have been carefully crafted in a simple to understand manner to ensure clients don’t get bogged down in detail. They can quickly get to grips with what’s required to trade financial markets effectively and efficiently.
Within the Admirals analytics section, clients will find the usual content: technical analysis, fundamental analysis, market reports, sentiment gauges, heat map, podcasts, and an economic calendar, etc. Trading Central is also offered free of charge. But it’s the Premium Analytics that takes the eye as the outstanding unique feature.
The section is exclusive to live account holders, whatever their account size, and takes the form of a trading room environment. Clients can access data and tools from companies as diverse as Dow Jones and Acuity.
Juan Enrique Cadiñanos, chief market analyst Admirals:
“We’re delighted and humbled to receive the analysis award. We’re a close-knit team at Admirals, and I view the award as a reward for all the demanding work my dedicated analytics and education colleagues have put in behind the scenes.
“Providing analysis and education services is often an overlooked offering from brokers, but we pride ourselves on the firm’s expertise as educators. We’re a competitive bunch of dedicated experts, and we genuinely believe our analysis is second to none in the retail industry.
“We’re never complacent at Admirals, and we never take our clients for granted. We always look for that extra trading edge we can provide our clients to encourage loyalty through success.
“All too often, broker analysis gets delivered as a passionless afterthought, without any understanding of the client’s specific needs. We like to believe we’ve created a point of difference with our enthusiastic analysis, which is provided regularly to registered clients and most is free to read on our sites.
“With our Premium Analytics, we’ve broken the mould. In this trading room, environment clients can take advantage of several features to enhance their trading. If our analysis empowers you, then you should make better-informed trading decisions. If you enjoy success, then you’ll remain loyal to our company”.
Juan also cites the recent education award as evidence of Admirals’ putting the client first philosophy, a positive attitude that has underpinned the firm’s service from day one.
“We’re truly an international company, with offices located on every continent. Receiving awards from Spain, Germany and Chile proves our worldwide appeal.
“The bulk of our education resource is translated into 18 languages to cater for our expanding global reach and we carefully designed our education resource for clients of all levels of ability.
“Clients are typically time-poor; many trade the markets on a part-time basis. Therefore, we edit our video content to ensure we concentrate on the salient points.
“With our Forex 101 and Zero to Hero trading courses, we accompany our clients on a steep learning curve which leaves them in a position of confidence underpinned by knowledge and skill”.
