IG expects to leverage her expertise as the broker is expanding its market share into other European countries amid a shake-up of the investment market led by high-flying brokerage apps.
The Netherlands has been one the first countries selected by app-based services such as Freetrade for a wider European rollout of its low-commission trading platform.
Earlier last month, IG Group Holdings PLC (LON:IGG) reported solid revenues for the first quarter of its fiscal year. The broker took in revenue of £209.0 million, which is up 62 percent from £129.1 million in the corresponding period for last year.
The vast majority of IG’s proceeds came from over-the-counter leveraged trading products, which includes contracts for difference and spread betting.
