The ayondoPRO trading platform provides an offering of more than 2,000 instruments with leverage of up to 200 times. Professional customers are also welcomed to participate in a Spread Rebate Program, giving clients a portion of the spread they have paid, back to their trading account. Each client is provided with their own Premium Account Manager.

Professional traders with a ayondoPRO account can also benefit from protective measures such as a free additional insurance, covering each FSCS customer up to £1,000,000 in excess of the FSCS standard, as well as negative balance protection.

Raza Perez, Chief Product Officer of ayondo, said: “With ayondoPRO, professional and experienced traders will benefit from a combination of excellent service, great trading conditions and customer protection. We have seen a lot of demand for a platform that provides high-leverage with trading conditions offering tight spreads. The launch of ayondoPRO is part of our commitment to keep improving and investing in our B2C product offering while introducing a PRO White Label facility for B2B clients, at the same time.”

BaFinsurvey conducted by the UK FCA-regulated broker ayondo and the German regulator BaFin found that 60 percent of UK equity investors look for an opportunity to generate a secondary income or to make money to give them a more flexible work life as their biggest driving force.

The survey also found that 30 percent of participants believe that “having a cool head” is the most important attribute to becoming a successful market investor or trader, followed by good timing (28%) and commitment (13%). This doesn’t come as a surprise for anyone within the trading industry.

35% of men gave the ‘excitement’ factor as their motivator to invest or trade, against only 18% of women. On the other hand, a quarter of women said they were driven by the idea that success in the stock markets feels like money for nothing, whilst only 19% of men were of the same view.
In the year ending May 2018, a third of the 100,000 new traders are millennials and 2 million individuals have put at least one trade during the year in the UK, with a growing number of traders being female, now representing 15% of the market. 87% of the UK’s full-time workforce either have a flexible work life or would like to have so.
