Dear partners, dear friends, dear customers,

It has been an exciting year, it’s hard to believe how time passes by so quickly and before we know it another year has come and gone.

As I ponder over the achievements of 2018 it has been a rewarding year with some major shifts and landmarks; thanks to a strong and agile team, Ampersand World has tackled these changes and challenges with more strength and determination than I could ever imagine.

We were happy to launch AW’s e-learning academy providing individuals with an insightful look into the world of commodity trading. The academy offers a tailor-made approach to trading and (these courses are quite simple of access).

As the dawn of our 10th year anniversary is rapidly approaching it remains ever imperative to stress the importance of putting employees first. I like to compare my team to a sports team. If you would like your team to perform well, they must all be involved in the game. This requires a high level of trust, communication, and collaboration from each team member, after all they are in it to win it.

We have employed new strategies and kept the same work ethic offering a premium experience in our industry.

No year ever passes without its challenges yet it is important to take time for yourself and to maintain a good work/life balance, remembering to take a deep breath.

I am looking forward to the coming year with hope and enthusiasm, poised in making new strides. As I look ahead I am excited to work with all of you and collaborate with clients who echo Ampersand World’s vision and spirit.

We love to work with our valued partners and I want to take this opportunity to thank them for their wonderful support.

We are proud and grateful for your trust and we look forward to collaborating with you in the coming year.

I wish you all enjoyable holidays!

Warmly
