In 2021, the world was tested once again, demonstrating our resilience and ability to overcome challenges. Despite all difficulties, the FBS yearly results turn to be great. Let's look at the FBS highlights to experience each moment of the outgoing year together.
It was a vivid year for us. We became even more powerful thanks to you! Now 21 000 000 traders joined us while the partners' community raised to 575 000. Also, FBS clients opened over 500 800 000 orders and earned $740 864 599 during 2021. The annual total trading volume of FBS is $8 974 589 830 000.
The numbers are really huge and show our reliability and prosperity. And every year's end means a new beginning for FBS.
We keep cooperating with talented and outstanding people with the same goals and vision.
In May 2021, FBS became the Official Principal Partner of Leicester City Football Club. The partnership commemorates the mutual ideas of the two teams and showcases our unique capabilities to make trading accessible to everyone. During the first half of this partnership, various joint contests and interesting activities were held for FBS clients and LCFC fans. And it is only a start in this three-year journey.
In addition, we have found a new brand ambassador, Kan Kantathavorn. A famous Thai actor, host, model, and family man has the same values as FBS. Together, we aspire to give people more free time to do great things and be with family. A global media campaign started in September 2021 with fascinating videos devoted to FBS products and promises to bring even more.
We never stand aside when it comes to making the world a better place. Helping and supporting those in need is one of our primary aims. That is why the special contests are launched every year to raise money for charity. And 2021 was no exception.
This spring, over 61 000 traders worldwide could participate in our Charity Bonus, Ramadan, and Songkran promotions and help people in need. FBS donated commissions and spreads from the partners’ closed orders to charity. Through our joint efforts, an impressive sum of $214 000 was collected and donated raised funds to the following charitable organizations: Colibries Foundation, Smile Charity, Red Cross, Baan Nok Kamin Foundation, Chonburi Deaf School, MyCare, Global Peace Mission, and many others. Thus, you and we shared the greatest power of all. The power of helping others.
We keep fulfilling your dreams. This year, we provided people opportunities to grow themselves and help others in Dreams Come True. One of our traders’ dreams was to support low-income mothers. And we sent special kits of clothes and necessities for newborns to our trader who helps those in need since childhood. He has already delivered the packages to several hospitals in the south of Bogota. Now the newborns are surrounded by care, and their moms can breathe a sigh of relief. This promo showed how important it never stop dreaming.
We celebrated our 12th Birthday with a great tournament 12 Years: Big Time! Big Money! It was the biggest promo for the whole history of FBS with a prize fund of $1 200 000. We raffled four cars, a Mercedes-Benz G-Class was one of them, real gold bars of 1 kg, $300 000, and a lot of gadgets.
In 2021, we became more digital and up-to-date to provide clients with the best service possible. The fresh brand style is just one more step towards the smoothest trading experience for FBS clients.
Each fresh design element, such as logos, colors, fonts, or blocks, has its meaning to highlight every FBS product's uniqueness and make them more recognizable and manageable for users.
The renewed brand style marks the beginning of an even more client-oriented era in our history. The world is developing, more innovations come and go, but something stays unchanged – our gratitude to each of you.
This year we made a lot of updates to take your trading to the next level! Thus, 8 000 000 new traders joined FBS Personal Area.
To begin with, we have updated the IB Program for our partners. A new Partner area offers partner attachment straight in the apps, statistics, advertisement materials, and fresh and user-friendly design.
We couldn't ignore the growing crypto market.

Also, the list is constantly updated with the new and popular crypto like Shiba Inu, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and more.
