At one of the world's largest trade fairs for retail traders in the capital markets, ForexExpo, which took place in Dubai, the ProfitLevel won the Best European Forex Broker 2021 award. This broker is active in a number of EU countries and one of its prominent representatives is its chief analyst Lucia Zarska. We were therefore interested not only in the magic of modern online securities markets and how to succeed in them, but also in what the work of a chief analyst in such a large international company looks like.

The profession of analyst is sometimes still perceived in the investment company as a more masculine role. How do you feel in this - what's more, leading - position?

You're right. Globally, the investment world is a bit of a "playground" for men. I am therefore honoured that there are companies in the investment world that do not have gender prejudices.

As a woman I never got anything for free, I never got a job because I knew someone. In every single case, it was only my skills that played a role, yet I still see people's surprised faces when I tell them what field I work in.

I must admit that I am proud of myself and our company, thanks to which we can turn all prejudices about women in our favour. I feel grateful, responsible and humble for being given the opportunity to show my skills.

In my case, the colleagues were very important, although I do not want it to sound like a total cliché, they are my biggest support and I believe it works the other way around as well.

What does an analyst's ordinary day look like?

4 coffees and a lot of work: D My day is divided and organized, because I have to schedule a significant amount of work to get everything done.

In the morning, I always read the latest news, so I don't miss anything, I check all the relevant foreign platforms like Reuters, Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal, the BBC and so on, and only then I can start working.

The goal and task of the analyst is to currently report what is happening in the market and analyse what could be coming up. These analyses are then available to clients, potential clients or the media.

Part of my job is to answer journalistic questions in the field of capital markets and prepare materials that could be of interest to the public.

ProfitLevel has won the prestigious world award Best Forex Broker Europe. What makes this company different from others?

From my point of view, it is mainly an open mind that is able to see opportunities even where others do not see them. In our corporate environment, management gives people space to express themselves fully and learn any new "skill".

We don't have an attitude - "you haven't studied it, so you don't know it".

On the contrary, whoever throws himself into the challenge and shows that he can be creative and active beyond his knowledge, will be a capable leader in the future. ProfitLevel is made up of courageous people who are not afraid of challenges.

What is the trend in online investment platforms today?

More and more we can observe the interest, especially of the young generation, in investing in cryptocurrencies.

In connection with this, more and more brokerage companies are including in their offer the possibility of trading these digital currencies.

Clients are placing emphasis on making their trading as flexible as possible, being able to look at their trading account at any time, from anywhere, and this also means constantly developing and improving technology to bring them the greatest comfort and trading experience.

What are all the things that can be traded with your company?

Clients can choose from a wide range of trading instruments that they can trade through CFD contracts.

On our trading platform, they will find not only the shares of world-famous companies such as Apple, Amazon, Tesla, and a number of other interesting companies, but also commodities, stock indices or Forex, i.e. currency pairs.

We are constantly trying to keep up with the trend and we update individual instruments at regular intervals according to our clients' interests. For those investors who prefer to trade with classic shares in their physical form, we of course also offer this option,

What are ProfitLevel's plans for the future?

We want to keep moving and developing. As the market does not sleep, and we see dynamic development especially in technology.

We need to continuously progress to be able to effectively establish our position that we have gained in the global market and to defend the mentioned award that we managed to win at the Forex Expo in Dubai, where we saw a really huge interest in our services from potential clients from all over the world.

So, in my opinion, the basis for future success is primarily the interest of all team members to continue learning.

To acquire not only technical and technological knowledge, but also to further increase our soft skills, international outlook and competence in dealing with people, which we must never underestimate even in the online world.
