RationalFX who own and operate Xendpay are one of the world’s fastest growing and most competitively priced independent foreign exchange companies, celebrated its seventh birthday in style on Thursday 22nd March 2012 at The London May fair Hotel. The carnival-themed celebration featured RationalFX’s very own All-Star Jazz Band, Escala, the gorgeous electric string quartet who caused a sensation in the final of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent and an exotic Brazilian Samba troupe, Brazilian Fantasy, who dazzled guests with a vibrant and entertaining performance. The event was hosted by renowned journalist, news presenter and TV host, Tasmin Lucia-Khan.
The event was a celebration of RationalFX’s significant accomplishments in the global Foreign Exchange sector and provided an opportunity for the company’s Founders Rajesh Agrawal and Paresh Davdra to announce the next phase of their exciting journey amidst a distinguished audience spanning respected clients, friends and VIPs.
Guests were welcomed with a Champagne and Canapé reception before an exclusive ‘in conversation with’ session hosted by Tasmin Lucia-Khan, where Rajesh Agrawal and Paresh Davdra, answered questions about their professional achievements as well as about the continued growth and success of RationalFX.
Chief Guest Chris Hughton, Manager of Birmingham City Football Club, of which RationalFX is the team’s shirt sponsor, was also called to the stage for a candid Q&A session with Tasmin Lucia-Khan, where he shared with the audience background about his career as a player and as a manager and the differences between the two as well as his thoughts on being one of the very few UK football managers of Ethnic origin.
Alongside the exciting party entertainment, guests were treated to sumptuous Pan-Asian cuisine, before a large Birthday cake was wheeled out, much to the delight of guests and the RationalFX team. The night’s celebrations then continued in full with guests being invited to take to the dance floor.
The event was a huge success in marking Rajesh Agrawal as a gifted entrepreneur, responsible for creating a multi-million pound commercial foreign exchange and international payments business. As a brand extension to RationalFX, Rajesh also announced the positive response the company has received with the launch of Xendpay.com, a leading global payments and money remittance online platform, helping individuals to save money when sending payments to almost any country in the world quickly, safely, and easily.
Speaking at the event, Rajesh Agrawal said: “I can’t believe it has been seven years already. It has been an overwhelming journey and running a business is like being in the eye of a storm. It is crazy and busy, and I wouldn’t have made it this far without Paresh and the rest of the team. We had a great time celebrating our successes at the birthday event and would like to thank everybody who made it down to join us. RationalFX is growing every single day and we have some major plans for the future of the company.
My advice to everyone out there wanting to start a business would be to explore the world and go out there and experience everything for yourself, first hand. More importantly the only person that can stop you in achieving fulfilling your ambitions is yourself.”
