RoboMarkets launches EU-regulated CFD broker for professional traders in Germany

Rick Steves

“If you’re a frequent trader that can be qualified as professional, there are many more benefits to trading with an EU-regulated broker than trading offshore.”

RoboMarkets Deutschland GMBH, the BaFin-regulated broker registered in Frankfurt am Main, has announced the launch of RoboMarkets Pro, which will start with the provision of its services dedicated only to professional clients.

This is a business-driven decision to satisfy the requirements and demand of German clients and provide them with access to special conditions for some assets, including DE40, stocks, currency pairs, and over 12,000 other instruments to invest in with leverage up to 1:300.

RoboMarkets Pro will focus on working with professional clients who are interested in cooperating with an EU-regulated broker that provides specific products and trading conditions, as well as free swaps until the end of 2022 and many other tools for professional traders.

Professional traders are the most neglected group of clients

Maximilian Felske, General Manager of RoboMarkets Pro, said: “Professional traders are currently the most neglected group of clients in the brokerage business – we are therefore putting extra effort into paying more attention to them and making their trading more comfortable. If you’re a frequent trader that can be qualified as professional, there are many more benefits to trading with an EU-regulated broker than trading offshore.”

“We notice this group of clients has a rising demand for high-leverage products. The company will therefore focus on satisfying this, serving them in the best way – starting from an onboarding process and continuing with specific conditions for the most popular products: CFDs on major indices, major currency pairs, etc. Also, we strongly and categorically believe that for any solid and established brokerage group, it’s much more comfortable to have traders that are active mostly in the EU-regulated entities, rather than traders who are trying to onboard offshore units on their own initiative. Traders also are much more protected and comfortable while trading with the EU-regulated units because of the security, variety of deposit/withdrawal methods, and localised customer support provided”, Maximilian Felske added.

A big percentage of active traders were forced to go offshore amid the new ESMA regulations that came into effect in 2018, with restricted higher leverage values for CFDs.

RoboMarkets believes that some traders moved offshore because they had no other choice, as they did not meet the criteria to be classified as professionals, while others who went offshore had to work much more actively than the EU-regulated ones due to the general trends in the market.

The general recovery of the economy and the rise in asset prices fueled the growth of investor portfolios, which have become comparable to professional ones, thus requiring a new approach to the provision of services. Hence the launch of RoboMarkets Pro.
