30 new companies have been added to expand our portfolio
As we continue to improve our platform and offer new opportunities for trading, we’ve been listening to your requests for specific companies. So, today we’re happy to announce that we’ve added 30 new stocks from six countries! (You can find the complete list of the additions at the bottom of this post.)
Our largest group of new stocks is from the Spanish market, covering a list of companies that belie the troubles of the Spanish economy. Many of them have large assets in Europe and South America, making them global on a par with US and UK companies. The highlights are Telefonica, the sixth largest mobile operator in the world; Banco Santander – the largest bank in the Eurozone in terms of capitalisation and Inditex, the owner of a number of famous fashion brands like Zara, Pull & Bear and Stradivarius.
We are also adding seven companies from the Netherlands and among them we have some giants – Shell, the household name from the oil and gas area and the second largest company in the world in terms of revenue; ING – the world’s largest banking group in terms of revenue with gross receipts, with over $150 billion per annum and Heineken, the third largest brewer in the world.
The US market also has several new additions, most notably Visa and Mastercard, two household names in the payments business. Their stocks have become even more popular lately with all the competition coming from new players in the industry like PayPal and Apple Pay.
Belgian companies are also making their debut with us, with two important players in their respective fields – AnheuserBusch, the world’s largest brewing company with a staggering 25% global share and the KBC Group, one of the largest retail banking groups in Europe.
We will also be offering Austrian stocks with two of their most prominent banks – Raiffeisen and ErsteBank, as well as the largest oil & gas/manufacturing company in the country OMV.
Last but definitely not least, you can now trade the pride of the European industry (although traded as a French company) – Airbus Group, the world’s second largest aircraft manufacturer who is aiming to become number one by 2017.
We are open to any and all new suggestions for companies you’d like to trade. You can share them in the comments or with our support staff.
