Reporting Solid Growth for Many Quarters Now
XTB, like most of the other broker-dealers, gained a windfall in March 2020 that pushed its numbers astronomically higher for the quarter. The figures of the latest quarter show a solid growth trajectory in the business of the Polish broker when its performance for the last few quarters are compared.
The preliminary results also show that the CFDs trading volume on the platform jumped by 39.3 percent quarter-over-quarter, while it added 67,231 new traders, 75 percent higher than Q4. The average number of active clients on XTB also increased by 43 percent.
The net client deposits with the broker remained PLN 951.2 million for the quarter, much higher than Q4 2020’s PLN 619.7 million and Q1 2020’s PLN 454.3 million.
“The priority of the Management Board is to further increase the client base, leading to strengthen the market position of XTB in the world,” the broker stated in the report.
