Trading online is becoming increasingly more available to the general public, having once been a domain that was largely dominated by investment bankers and others working in the financial industry. XTrade.com, which is fully regulated and offers full customer support with over a thousand employees, hopes that the strategic move to appoint Ronaldo as their ambassador will help to dispel any misinformed ideas that the public may have about Forex and CFD trading being exclusive to the finance industry.
As one of the most famous footballers in the world today, Ronaldo shot to fame playing for high-profile Premier League team Manchester United. Currently he plays for Spanish football team Real Madrid, as well as his Portuguese national football team. Dubbed by many as one of, if not the best, football player of his time, the new face of XTrade is definitely a household name that almost everybody will recognise. XTrade hope that this new partnership will make their online trading service, available via web or mobile application, even more of an appealing prospect to aspiring traders worldwide.
Social Media Advertising
With almost two hundred million followers across his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram profiles, Ronaldo is definitely in a good position to spread the word about XTrade. The brokerage has already tapped into the footballer’s huge online following, updating his fans about his latest financial move. Speaking to his followers about the deal, the sporting star said: ‘To be the best, you need the best. That is why I have chosen to partner with XTrade, one of the world’s leading digital trading platforms. And there is no easy way to become the world’s best. The only way is through perseverance, practice, and more practice – until perfection.’ XTrade certainly share the footballer’s views on practice and perseverance, offering their customers a free demo trading account that they can use to practice trading before they start trading for real.
The Perfect Partnership
XTrade’s Head of Operations, Mark Leigh, is excited about the new partnership. Elaborating on the strategic deal, he said that it is an opportunity for XTrade to support one of the world’s most exciting talents, whilst also promoting XTrade’s innovative and market-leading trading products around the globe. The Head of Operations believes that the partnership is a move which will inevitably lead to increasing the international presence of the trading platform. In a statement, a spokesperson for Ronaldo’s official representative, Polaris Sports Ltd, expressed their approval of the deal. ‘Our focus is always to have Ronaldo associated with the best global brands, and XTrade is a great example.’
