Plus500, an FTSE 250 company listed on the London Stock Exchange market, announced its five-year plan on Tuesday. The company plan targets an incremental annual revenue nearing $500 million within the stated period.
For the brokerage to achieve this goal, it will hugely invest in expanding existing products, strengthening customer engagement, seeking licenses of operation from different jurisdictions, and introducing new products.
The current global business sway and waving market conditions contributed to the set of this objective. Recently, trading platforms have been witnessing a downward trend in trading volume due to the highlighted competition between them.
To avoid this competition turbulence, brokerages are drafting self-tricks that will possibly outsmart their competitors.
