Conor McGregor has been chosen by XTB to become its ambassador. The investment company, which offers one of the most popular online investment platforms, wanted to sign an athlete with business acumen.
“The Notorious” rose to the top of MMA, which he broke into in 2013 when he joined the UFC. Declared by Forbes last October “the highest-paid sportsman on the planet,” Conor McGregor is a multi-weight UFC champion but also an entrepreneur, restaurateur, and global sports icon.
He won the featherweight title in 2015 and, the following year, became the first two-time champion in UFC history, winning the lightweight belt. Outside the ring, Conor McGregor is a true businessman for whom the similarities between the worlds of sport and business are numerous. XTB, one of the world’s largest publicly traded brokers with a trading platform available on 13 markets, already has over 520,000 investors.
“I am delighted to have become the official ambassador of one of the world’s leading investment companies for years to come. I believe that sports and investing require the same characteristics: commitment, mental toughness, and the ability to set personal goals. That’s why I was pleased to begin a partnership with XTB – a renowned global investment firm that helps clients facilitate their investment goals,” said Conor McGregor.
