In 1992 he showed his world leading ambitions by winning a super tournament in Reggio Emilia ahead of Kasparov and Karpov. In 2000 he became Fide World champion and in the year 2007 he finally became an undisputed world champion and held his title for 6 years. In the same year of 2007, he was awarded India’s second highest civilian award, the Padma Vibhushan, making him the first sportsperson to receive the award. He is also current World Rapid Chess Champion.

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 in Forex. In Forex you need to forecast currency movements, in chess you need to forecast the moves of your opponents. So I was not surprised to find out that there are many chess players in InstaForex, even the president has a rating of 2200. So that’s why I’m wholeheartedly looking forward to start working with InstaForex”

Stephen Pearson, CEO of Sports Media Gaming commented that “this is a real standout partnership that creates a strong point of difference in the market and we are thrilled to have been involved in the strategy and negotiation”
