Although there are many regulatory bodies monitoring binary options brokers, there is currently no regulatory body in place in Canada. Indeed, the Canadian binary options brokers available to any resident of Canada may be registered with another regulatory body or they may be completely unregistered. As the Canadian governments not yet provide any restrictions on this type of trading it is possible for any broker to offer their services to Canadian residents. Of course this means that you need to thoroughly research any broker befo re you sign up to an account with them.
June 2016 was a lifechanging time for Britain when it was determined that the overall vote in the referendum was to leave the European Union (EU). Almost immediately, the pound crashed and business owners began to ask whether they would be affected by the so called ‘Brexit’, and if so, how? Independence from Europe will allow Britain to negotiate its own Free Trade Agreements (FTA) but what will this actually mean?

Business success within sport is key and becoming ever more important, one very common story within Scotland has been the fall from grace of Rangers FC. The business side of the organisation was badly handled and this resulted in them being relegated from the top division. This irresponsible and short term approach is now much more unlikely within football as a result of the Financial Fair Play model. Business planning is key to giving your team on the pitch or within the workplace the best chance of succeeding. We also look at how businesses linked to your brand or organisation can maintain and increase interest on what you are doing. In February 2012 Rangers were placed into insolvency and entered a long and traumatic period for a club of its size and stature within the game. A failure to reach an agreement with creditors ensured that the club was liquidated in June 2012 and the club was effectively relegated to the third tier of Scottish Football. Simply a remarkable tale, if this occurred in the English Premiership it’s like Manchester United or Liverpool being relegated and playing York and Accrington Stanley every week! Blame was thrown and reasons cited but atrocious business planning and a reckless financial overspend was the wave which crashed into Rangers. Their rivals Celtic looked on in disbelieve and have since been unchallenged for dominance in the league. Alongside Celtic, Rangers was the dominant force within Scottish football and really should have avoided the nightmare that has followed since. Being a superpower in a division they should have taken advantage of more commercial deals and activity within the sporting marketplace. Firms like Coral are linked into football and organisations who have a large global reach, so they could have used partnerships with businesses like these to
For any modern company, merely surviving in the competitive marketplace by making ends meet is not enough. Instead it’s increasingly important that your brand thrives in order to grow and secure its future in the highly volatile world of modern business. But thankfully, there are a number of ways in which you can take your business to the next level. And here are a few quick and easy business solutions. Promotions and special offers One of the main ways to keep existing customers engaged and attract new audiences is through the use of special offers. By providing limited-edition price drops, two-for-ones, and special loyalty bonuses, it keeps your brand at a visible level and can stimulate your target market with some carefully selected offers. The rapidly growing online casino sphere has really benefited from such activities. In particular, the popular Betsafe brand has managed to build up a dedicated audience through special welcome deals for newcomers, mobile-friendly offers on weekends, and some highly advantageous bonus offers on select casino games. Social media One of the biggest changes in the way that companies are able to energise their audience is through the use of the interactive features offered by social media. For example, niche businesses such as Cartographers Union are able thrive in the online domain through publicising their activities via an array of social media websites such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. And as the company is highly aesthetically-centred, it also takes advantage of popular Pinterest image-sharing service as part of its strategy of targeting key areas of its potential audience. Special events Whilst having an online shop and website can undoubtedly help provide a convenient interface for people to enjoy your services, there’s nothing better than face-to-face interaction. And any business can help build valuable bonds with their audiences by developing special
