A few years back, I was introduced to WinGroup, one of the few brokerage firms that pride themselves on catering to the needs of traders. Recently, I just found myself ready to review the company. After using the forum for several years it became clear quickly that WinGroup is a company that provides excellent service and support as well as an excellent quality of life balance. A trader who has been using this platform is usually happy. Although he might have some minor problems which again might not be common to all traders.
Even though you only really hear about the bad stuff that goes on in workplaces, I always try to listen to people’s individual experiences with companies because it gives me a more well-rounded picture of what kind of place the company is.
When I was researching for the best brokerage firms, I tried looking for current customers of WinGroup because they get to observe it from the closest. In the review below, I will try to answer most of the questions that I am asked about my company in this review. So without further ado, let’s jump into some questions and answers about working for WinGroup!
Q: How did you get into trading?
A: Back in middle school and early high school, I spent many hours watching videos on YouTube about different markets. Back then, I had no idea one day I would be running after brokerage firms. My interest was always piqued when it came to the stock market and how everything worked.
Eventually, I found myself becoming more interested in Bitcoin and I started doing my own research to see how I could profit off of the market. I’ve always been a Salesian missionary, so there was never any kind of fantasy about trading full time and retiring at 30 or something like that, but it is amazing how quickly your interest grows in something once you start making money!
Q: What made you decide to join WinGroup?
A: I had been trading for about a year at the time, and it just started to get too much. It’s nice being able to do something you enjoy on the side while still having a day job where you can see your family and friends every day. However, if you’re going to make this into a full-time job, you want to have stability and be able to make a living off of it.
I did some research into different brokerage firms that would be right for me in terms of how they operated their business and how their customers were treated, and WinGroup came up as the perfect fit due to the quality of life they provide along with their profitability. You will see that as we go on in the review.
Q: What was the application process like? I’m sure it’s pretty different from other companies.
A: It really wasn’t very different at all from most other companies. They just wanted to learn more about me as a person and authenticate all the provided credentials and I think that is justified because with all the growing crime rates you should not let anyone go.
Things were a lot easier since I already had trading experience and a good amount of knowledge regarding the stock market, but they wanted to make sure that I was determined and eager to learn from them as well.
Q: How is the work life balance?
A: It’s definitely the work-life balance that I appreciate the most. Every day is a different experience for these brokerage firms, and who knows what will happen tomorrow; you can turn on your computer and it’s just sitting there, waiting for you to jump into trading. On top of this, there are no crazy hours or deadlines that need to be met. If I work until 8:00 PM and I’m in the middle of a trade, I can stay up until 4:00 AM if that’s what it takes to get things done because there is no boss breathing down my neck.
Q: What’s the biggest advantage of working for WinGroup?
A: Thanks for asking. I wished to mention it in the review too. Definitely the amount of freedom that you have. There truly is no pressure to complete your work by a certain time, and if something comes up during the day that requires me to take care of it rather than trading in the stock market, I don’t feel stressed about it at all.
I can take care of what I need to and then jump right back into my trading afterwards, which is pretty awesome in comparison to companies like regular 9-5 jobs! Apart from that, about the trading process, I have always loved that they offer you hundreds of trading tools that fully equip you to make well-informed decisions.
Q: What do you think is the biggest weakness of WinGroup?
A: I’m not too sure, to be honest, because I think all traders have different needs when it comes to these brokerage firms and hence the answer to this question is not a definite one. There are a lot of things that don’t come out by just reading about them online; it really depends on how someone feels personally. For example, the amount of freedom may be a weakness for some traders while others might actually enjoy it and want more of that. But if you ask me then I will say the dark backdrop. I’m not a fan of that.
Q: How have you found WinGroup’s Customer Support? Would you suggest any improvements?
A: It’s absolutely excellent all around. I’ve never had any issues with Customer Support because it has always been pretty solid! I would love to hear from them one day that the customer support reps will be available 24/7.
Q: How has WinGroup changed the way you trade?
A: It’s certainly made things a lot easier since I don’t have to worry about anything else other than trading. I can let them do their thing and know that they are handling it properly, and that leaves me completely open for trading! Now I just need to pick the right time to trade the right asset with the help of technologically advanced tools.
Q: How was your experience making transactions?
A: It was great! I’ve never had any problems with transactions because they are quick, easy to use and everything is always in order. They have made it a lot easier for me to complete my trading on time and make sure that every single request is checked off the list. In this review, I would like to warn you that this is not a usual practice at most online brokerages.
Q: How was your working experience with the financial managers?
The financial managers themselves are very professional and take care of things in a very timely manner; if anything goes wrong there is never any reason to worry because they will always provide you with many ways you can fix the mistake or make up for the loss. I love how professional they are and how they always make sure that they resolve any issues immediately. They respond quickly to emails, phone calls, or messages; no matter what time of day, and they always follow through with their promises. One day I might write a review on my financial manager.
Q: You joined this forum as a stock trader. What made you explore crypto and forex? Also, how was that experience?
A: Well I like to do my research before making any decisions and with the recent popularity of Bitcoin, it was only a matter of time before I started to read more about it. Once I found out that you could trade investment funds for Bitcoin, I was hooked and decided to give it a shot! I never thought that I would like it as much as I do and trading Bitcoin has definitely changed my trading life. Although there are a lot of risks associated, I feel like Bitcoin is a great opportunity for me to trade in the future and it will definitely be interesting to see how it turns out.
Q: Where do you imagine yourself in the next 20 years?
A: Hopefully retire from trading and living life by the beach! And yes, watching online brokerages work in traders’ interest.
Q: What tip do you have to offer to someone who’s a newbie?
A: Do your research and be disciplined. There is so much information online regarding trading, in the form of a review and otherwise, that it can easily get overwhelming when you are trying to figure out what works best for you. That being said, if you are new to the stock market, just take it one step at a time and don’t overdo anything.
Working for WinGroup, in particular, is great because you can learn how to trade online while earning money along the way; if you feel like this is something that would interest you then definitely apply! Just make sure that you are serious about trading and know what you want out of it.
