He recounted the journey of the business over the years and how it is planning to keep on adapting innovations to continuously provide quality and excellent financial services.

Ms. Lim also announced their plan to launch the latest payment platform for WUBS services which will allow businesses to book payments on their own for their offshore suppliers in a simpler, faster way.

“We all know that in any business, it’s never just rainbows and butterflies. But we have been blessed and lucky enough to experience most of the up side. All of this, apart of course from hard work and dedication of the people behind PETNET Forex, is because of the people who believed in us. So in behalf of the entire team, thank you, for trusting us and believing that we can deliver your foreign exchange requirements,” says Lim.

To show appreciation and gratitude to its corporate partners, PETNET Forex management recognized ten corporate clients who have been loyal to the company over the years. The Diamond Award speaks of the strong and mutually beneficial partnership between the awardees and PETNET Forex.

Elba Gacutan, PETNET’s Executive Vice President and COO, summed up the gathering with PETNET’s recent ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System recertification accomplishment. She also mentioned the company’s preparation for the Information Security Management Systems audit in the coming months to ensure the safety and security of the clients’ information. With all this in place, Gacutan assured the partners that PETNET Forex group indeed is geared towards providing better and exemplary financial services.

Indeed, PETNET Forex forges a new era of synergies with its clients not just by providing excellent service but by empowering and engaging clients to work together to sustain success in the coming years.
