XTB has become one of the top-rated brokers in the world.

Financial Results

In 2018, XTB reported an EBITDA of USD 12.2 million.

Corporate Social Responsibility

XTB was one of the first brokers to introduce a social responsibility program, called the “XTB Community Fund”. The XTB Community Fund provides funding to NGOs working on social causes. The company’s Community Fund was created in 2006. Since then, it has raised more than USD 1.2 million for over 60 different organizations.

XTB is one of the only brokers in the world to offer a variety of innovative financial products, including derivatives and CFD. As a result, it has a wide range of clients, from small businesses to major corporations. In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of the company, XTB actively invests in its employees and clients.

In 2018, XTB was awarded the award for Best Financial Services Provider for its CSR program.

Awards

XTB has won several awards, including the following:

Winner of the Best Brokerage Service Award in the financial sector at the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Brokerage Services.

XTB pros and cons

As I have noted in my previous reviews, I don’t find this to be a deal-breaker. However, it should be noted that many other brokers offer free fundamental data, which is very useful for investors who want to monitor a stock’s development.

XTB does not offer stop loss orders or margin accounts. However, they do offer a robust trading platform, which allows for customised trading rules and offers several risk management tools.

XTB does not offer a free demo account.

Pros

Trading platform is easy to use.

Minimum deposit is low and there are no withdrawal fees.

High commission-free CFD trading.

Low fees for stocks and ETFs.

Risk management tools available.

Cons

Fees charged for stocks CFD trading are high.

Fundamental data is limited.

No free demo account.

Conclusion

XTB is a small broker, with a limited product portfolio, but a decent trading platform and some useful features. It does not offer a free demo account, which is something I don’t think I’ve seen elsewhere. I think this is something that is easily fixed, and I would like to see XTB add a free demo account to their offering.

XTB trading fees

On this occasion, we compare the following pairs: XTB and FTSE 100 CFD, XTB and EUR/USD CFD, XTB and GBP/USD CFD, and XTB and USD/JPY CFD.

We assume that all the clients’ accounts are started with the same amount of money. This is not a common situation. However, we think that it is important to understand the fees of different brokers from the same initial amount of money.

Non-trading fees

XTB has average non-trading fees. There is no account fee, no deposit fee for bank transfer deposits, and no withdrawal fee for bank transfer withdrawals above a certain threshold (between $50-$200 depending on your country of residence). To conclude, XTB is a no-fee crypto-currency exchange.
