Andrew Gibson, who departed Alfa Capital Markets as the Head of Institutional Sales earlier this week, has joined Dubai-based forex and contracts for differences (CFDs) broker, Tavira Securities as the Head of Product Development.

“I am happy to announce that I have joined Tavira Securities Dubai as Head of Product Development for FX and CFDs,” Gibson wrote in a Linkedin post.

Tavira Securities is authorized and regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) and is allowed to provide investment services. It holds another license from the United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA ).

The offerings of the platform include trading services with forex and CFDs of other asset classes.

A Well-Experienced Industry Executive

He joined the new role within days after he departed from Alfa Capital Markets. He left the company after three years, saying that the Cyprus-based company was decimated by the ongoing geopolitical tensions.

He brings more than three decades of financial industry experience to his new role. He started his career in 1986 with a futures broker but switched to the software sales roles.

He moved back to the trading industry in August 2007 as a Sales Manager of FX Products at Fortis Bank Global Clearing, spending four years there. In addition, he worked for years at ABN AMRO Clearing Bank in an FX sales role and had a short stint at TradAir as Global Sales Director.

Furthermore, he worked at Netherlands-based Fastmatch for five months as a Foreign Exchange Consultant before joining BCS Financial Group. Prior to his role at Alfa Capital Forex, he was an FX Consultant at Amsterdam’s SGBbv.
