Legend! You think that’s bombastic rhetoric? But how should we call a man, who became the first Asian to win the junior world chess championship at 18 and who became the first Indian Grandmaster at 19? That was the start of a hard path to the World Champion title for Viswanathan Anand, the man who became a part of history of chess forever.

When he was 22 he won his first super tournament, beating the great Kasparov by a decent margin. In 2000, Anand became Fide World Chess Champion. 7 years later, his dream of life came true as he became the unified (the only) World Chess Champion.

Anand secured the World Champion title for the whopping 6 years, beating such super Grandmasters as Vladimir Kramnik, Veselin Topalov, and Boris Gelfand. Eventually in 2017 at the age of 48, Anand outpaced more than 100 younger opponents and was acknowledged to be the World Champion in Rapid Chess!

Besides the above-mentioned achievements, Anand keeps a tally of over 100 victories in the most prestigious chess tournaments, 6 chess Oscars, many highest civil awards of India. That’s why it’s a great honour for us to announce that Viswanathan Anand has become a brand ambassador for InstaForex!

Pavel Shkapenko Business Development Director for InstaForex said:

"The last thing we wanted to do is to sign yet another brand ambassador agreement just to display their images on all our marketing materials. The interest to Forex and our company is getting higher and higher, but the need for education is getting higher and higher. So we were looking for an ambassador who could become a real role model for new traders and lead by example. And within this framework we are delighted to have Viswanathan as our brand ambassador."

Viswanathan Anand commented:

"If you look at chess and Forex, you will find a lot of similarities. Both activities are about earning a living by pure intellect, both give you complete freedom on where to live, when to work etc. You can’t work in modern chess without a computer, the same situation is about Forex. In the currency market you need to forecast currency movements, in chess you need to forecast moves of your opponents. So I was not surprised to find out that there are many chess players at InstaForex, even the CEO has a rating of 2200. So, I’m truly looking forward to start working with InstaForex."
