“Our traders are staying with us to take advantage of the highly competitive spreads we offer and our ultra-fast order execution. We’ve worked hard to ensure we deliver a high-performance trading experience that attracts and rewards a loyal following of online traders,” Budzinski added.

Meanwhile, the broker is focusing on strengthening its brand across global markets, especially in Europe. Furthermore, it has inked sponsorship deals with 12 football clubs in Spain and Germany. Recently, the broker became a member of the Financial Commission, offering €20,000 fund protection for every client.
