Former Gold-i executive Arun Lakhani, who had left the MT4/MT5 integration specialist earlier this month as Finance Magnates reported, has joined Equiti Capital UK as a partner solutions manager.
Equiti Capital UK is the FCA-regulated arm of global FX broker Equiti Group.
According to people familiar with the matter, Lakhani will report to Mitesh Vaghela, director of product at Equiti in London.
Lakhani spent more than five years at the Gold-i after joining the firm as a technical support engineer in 2015.
He held a senior support engineer- and eventually a senior business development role at the company prior to his recent departure.

Adding market knowledge
“We are very pleased to have Arun Lakhani join Equiti’s business solutions team. Arun’s knowledge of the market and the ability to build bespoke solutions for brokers in the industry will be highly valuable in supporting Equiti’s global growth strategy”, Vaghela said in an interview.
Lakhani added that Equiti is a brokerage with an excellent global reputation for offering accessible Prime Brokerage services.
“But what is really striking, and what attracted me to Equiti, is the passion and dedication within the Equiti Group to continually innovate, grow the business and improve the offering to deliver a superior client service,” he concluded.
