Who is XTB? Introduce the company in a few words.
Daniel Gravel: XTB is a globally recognized stock broker. Our goal is to offer our clients a top-notch investment platform, where they will find different investment solutions – real stocks, ETFs as well as CFDs on cryptocurrencies, indices, commodities – all on one platform. XTB strives to provide the best possible trading experience to its clients.
Are many individuals investing in the stock market today?
We have seen the global trend and growing popularity of stock market investing in recent years. Low interest rates until recently, the growing popularity of online tools and the lockdown during the pandemic have given future investors more time to learn about the financial markets – these elements have probably encouraged individuals to enter the investment market. Faced with rising inflation, investors realized that it was necessary to not only rely on risk-free assets like bank deposits. Some of them therefore decided to start investing using other products. We want to meet these needs by offering a modern, easy to use and fully customizable online investment platform.
Daniel Gravel: XTB is a global fintech. Technology being one of the most important elements in the investment and finance industry these days, we want to offer our clients a top-notch investment platform.
What are XTB’s short-term goals?
We want to continue our development and the global expansion of the company. Based on intensive marketing actions and the development of business partnerships, we constantly want to acquire new customers. This has resulted in constant growth – the number of XTB customers worldwide recently exceeded 500,000. Thanks to the active global development and the constantly growing number of customers, the company ranks among the best online brokers in the world – according to the latest Finance Magnates report, we have just entered the top five global brokers in terms of the number of active clients. We also want to continue expanding into global markets – not just Europe, which is our home market. Indeed, last year we opened an office in Dubai to cover our operations in the Middle East and North Africa region. Today, we have our offices in 13 countries.
