Plus500 reveals a series of changes

In fact, it’s been a busy couple of weeks for the FTSE-250 listed broker. As Finance Magnates reported, the firm is planning to expand its operations into physical equity trading, moving the online contracts for difference (CFD) broker into mainstream stockbroking.

In particular, the broker is looking at share dealing. This expansion would put the company in competition with Hargreaves Lansdown and AJ Bell, which are listed companies on the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250, respectively.

In August, Plus500 also dedicated resources to its brand awareness, signing an agreement with the Italian football team Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio to become its sole and exclusive sponsor.

Under the agreement, the Israel based broker has become the main sponsor for Atalanta B.C. for three years commencing on the 1st of September 2020. This is the third sports sponsorship announced by the Israel-based broker this year, with the last one announced two weeks prior.
