Capital.com plans to introduce new products and features to the platform including enabling machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to help traders and investors make better choices.

Capital.com is celebrating the astonishing growth experienced in 2021, with the total number of registered users on the trading platform spiking to 4.23 million, up by 350% from the previous year.

The high-growth global trading and investing platform saw total client trading volumes grow by 303% to reach USD 565 billion, with the number of trades executed increasing by 388% in 2021.

Jonathan Squires, Group Chief Executive Officer at Capital.com, said: “Global lockdowns have brought about lasting shifts in consumer behaviors and attitudes. With more people staying at home and looking for ways to supplement their income and keep busy, online platforms like Capital.com gained ground.

“Taking our cue from our clients’ changing preferences, we diversified into stock trading, extended our trading hours and made improvements to the platform so that more people can invest and trade online, for themselves, from anywhere”.

Capital.com plans to introduce new products and features to the platform including enabling machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to help traders and investors make better choices.

“Our goal is to support the self-directed investor with ample education. We know that each individual consumes information differently, which is why Capital.com is developing a dedicated AI solution to better understand client behaviour and to create a more personalised trading experience. We will also continue to expand into new markets, including the US, maintaining our strong growth year on year. It goes without saying that our global expansion plans will be in step with regulatory approvals”, Squires added.

In 2021, the brokerage firm launched stock trading and diversified beyond CFDs, as well as commission free stock trading.

The company increased headcount by 478% in 2021 and opened new offices in Warsaw, Kiev, Vilnius, Melbourne, Singapore and Sofia.

Capital.com also obtained a license from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) while strengthening risk management by obtaining an ISO 27001 certification and compliance by partnering with KRM22 Market Surveillance solutions to help prevent potential market abuse, fraud and operational breaches.
