This includes hiring a robotics expert as the head of the newly created AI department.

Brooks’ skillset is expected to deepen XTB UK’s research offering and provide clients with the best market insights possible. As XTB UK continuously introduces new services and products to acquire new clients, the company is actively hiring for research positions.

Increased Investor Confidence:

XTB UK’s actions, including the expansion of its product range and the addition of experienced professionals like Kathleen Brooks, are translating into increased investor confidence. Among the seven publicly traded FX/CFD brokers, XTB UK’s shares were among the strongest performers in 2023, gaining over 22%.
