Rick Steves

InstaForex provides access to trading of forex, CFDs, stocks, futures, options, and cryptocurrencies as the FX industry goes multi asset to address the needs of an increasingly demanding client base. 

InstaForex has extended its partnership with Borussia Dortmund, one of the top German and European football clubs, with both parties continuing their fruitful cooperation for the third consecutive football season.

The FX and CFD broker has been the official partner of the German football club in Asia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) since 2019.

InstaForex and Borussia Dortmund tied up in success

Last season, Borussia won the German Cup for the fifth time and InstaForex significantly expanded its customer base in a year of full blown COVID-19 pandemic.

InstaForex’s clients gained access to VIP-experiences at the club’s stadium as well as a joint charity event with the club’s legend Jan Koller.

Benedikt Scholz, BVB’s Head of International & New Business, commented: “We appreciate the trust InstaForex has placed in us and are excited about the extension of our partnership. We look forward to further developing our presence with InstaForex and achieving success together.”

Ildar Sharipov, President of InstaFintech Group, said: “We have developed a unique and very productive tandem with Borussia. So, we are very happy to continue our cooperation. We always strive to build strong, long-lasting relationships with our partners.”

The multi asset broker has signed other sponsorship deals, having backed the InstaForex Loprais Team and its leader Ales Loprais, who have achieved impressive results in the Dakar Rally, one of the most prestigious races in the world.

Other partners in the world of sports are 3-time Olympic Medalist Yulia Efimova, 8-time German Champion Borussia Dortmund, and World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand.

A newcomer should sign up for either the Android or iOS version and upload scanned copies or photos of an ID. As soon as personal data is processed, this account will be recognized as verified. The second level of verification opens up more privileges.
