Daniela Egli, who was appointed as the CEO of Skilling’s Cyprus Office in May, has now joined the proprietary trading platform, The Trading Pit (TTP), as the CEO of Cyprus. Egli made her new role public on Tuesday via an update to her LinkedIn profile.

Before joining Skilling eight months ago, Egli spent over two and a half years at FXView, a Finvasa Group-owned forex and CFD trading platform, where she served as the Managing Director.

The executive, who boasts of a career spanning over a decade, was previously the Executive Director of Blackwell Global. She worked for the forex and CFD brokerage for over six years, part of that time was spent as a Business Development Manager between September 2012 and August 2014.

Between 2008 and 2012, Egli headed RTO for MeritKapital, a Cyprus-based majority women-owned investment manager.

"I joined TTP to help manage the operations in Cyprus and assist with the expansion of our company into new markets. We are looking to build a model that will disrupt the financial services sector and will provide traders with a transparent ecosystem into which they can hone their skills and reach their full potential in trading," Egli told Finance Magnates.

In addition, the executive believes that her experience from working in management roles with various companies in the financial sector combined with "the incredibly talented and hard-working team" at The Trading Pit will contribute towards building "a truly one-of-a-kind trading universe" for the firm's clients.

Appointments and Funding

Egli’s appointment comes over two months after The Trading Pit appointed Thomas Heyden, an industry veteran with about two decades of financial experience, as the CEO of the headquarters in Liechtenstein.

Earlier in July, Finance Magnates exclusively reported that Themis Christou, the former Interim Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) at Tickmill joined the proprietary trading platform in a CMO capacity.

Meanwhile, the Trading Pit recently raised €10 million from a growth funding round led by Co-Founder Illimar Mattus's private equity firm, Pinorena Capital. The trading platform firm said it will use the fund to accelerate its growth by creating a ‘super app' with proprietary trading functionalities. Also, the firm said it intends to expand into the investment and asset management business.

"The Trading Pit emerged from the simple concept of giving all skillful traders a fair opportunity to reach success in an environment where there is no conflict of interest, and which has full transparency,” Christoph Radecker, a Co-Founder of The Trading Pit, said.

“Our initial success has convinced us that we need to be much bolder with our plans and execution, and the capital provided by our investors will help us to do exactly that," Radecker added.
