Artificial intelligence (AI) on markets, opportunities in foreign securities, and views on cryptocurrency as the new digital asset class are a few of the upcoming topics on the podcast.

Interactive Brokers has announced the launch a new podcast series featuring interviews with executives, thought leaders and market experts discussing topical themes impacting global markets and trading.

Traders’ Insight Radio will have in-house IBKR podcast hosts providing important context around the singular viewpoints being examined during the conversations.

Entertaining way to access expertise across  industry

Steve Sanders, EVP of Marketing and Product Development at Interactive Brokers, said: “We continue to focus on providing investors with the educational tools needed to improve their understanding of financial markets and trading. Traders’ Insight Radio complements the resources already available through IBKR Campus and is a new and entertaining way all investors can easily access and benefit from expertise across the finance industry.”

The podcast caters to both advanced traders and novice investors and enhances the suite of offerings already available through IBKR Campus.

Artificial intelligence (AI) on markets, opportunities in foreign securities, and views on cryptocurrency as the new digital asset class are a few of the upcoming topics on the podcast.

IBKR has recently selected Alkymi to enhance the digital client onboarding experience for its customers and to efficiently support its rapidly growing customer base.

The US-based online brokerage firm deployed two solutions, Alkymi Data Inbox and Alkymi Patterns, as the securities firm looks to eliminate manual collection, extraction and transformation of data and focus on client service while improving costs.

IBKR says its adoption of Alkymi is a strategic collaboration in the client experience for its broker/dealer business, which will translate into more satisfied brokerage customers.

The broker has been taking measures to address the needs and wants of retail traders, having recently launched a new tool for investors to compare the relative valuations and financial metrics of stocks globally.

Going by the name of GlobalAnalyst, the tool helps investors improve their international portfolio diversification by discovering undervalued companies with greater growth potential.

IBKR also entered the crypto game by introducing cryptocurrency trading for Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) in the United States via Paxos Trust Company on behalf of clients.

Investment advisors will be able to trade and custody Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) with commissions as low as 0.12% – 0.18% of trade value, depending on monthly volume with a USD 1.75 minimum per order.

Last but not least was the launch of the ESG mobile trading platform, IMPACT, designed to help socially conscious traders and investors to align their investments according to their principles and values.
