Windsor Broker Ltd today is the only Cypriot Investment Firm in its field to be awarded with a CIPA International Investment Award.
CIPA Awards are very special awards as they are given to organizations and people who have either invested directly in Cyprus or that have contributed to the growth of Cyprus as a world-class business center.
CIPA (the Cyprus Investment Promotion Agency, funded by the Cyprus Government) and GOLD magazine (the leading business magazine in Cyprus) have been organizing the annual CIPA International Investment Awards since the year 2012. The CIPA Awards Ceremony takes place at the Presidential Palace, under the auspices of H.E. the President of the Republic of Cyprus.
Previously awarded companies included large firms from various sectors such as Noble Energy, Exxon Mobil, Intership Navigation, Barclays Bank, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement, MTN Cyprus and more.
For Windsor to be awarded with a CIPA International Investment Award especially this year during tough economic times, is a milestone, an honour and the perfect ‘thank you’ for our presence on the island and for what we have offered to Cyprus over our history of 25 years.
Windsor extends sincere gratitude and appreciation towards H.E. the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr. Nicos Anastasiades and the organizers CIPA and GOLD magazine for the impressive event and this amazing recognition.
We have always believed and supported Cyprus in words and in actions and we will continue to remain committed in the future.
