AxiCorp, a provider of foreign exchange (FX) and contracts-for-difference (CFD) trading, has announced its newest senior appointment, tapping Torsten Gellert as its newest Head of Operations in Germany, part of the group’s latest expansion on the continent, according to a AxiCorp statement.
In his new role Mr. Gellert will be tasked with growing and developing AxiTrader’s presence and market share in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, a burgeoning region of FX clients. Mr. Gellert joins AxiCorp after a decorated career in the CFD and FX industry, having since helped manage and bolster similar operations for CMC Markets and FXCM during previous stints.
According to Louis Cooper, Global Head of Retail Services at AxiCorp: “Torsten has an enviable track record in the German market. He’s been instrumental in growing the client base in this market and he’s definitely a great addition to our global team.”

“I am joining AxiTrader at a very interesting point in time when the company undergoes significant change to position itself as a truly global company. The commitment of AxiCorp and the Management team to the German market is a testament to that,” reiterated Mr. Gellert.
“Germany is an exciting market that has seen continued growth and huge demand from a very sophisticated community of traders. Based on my years of experience in working in this market, I know for a fact that traders here are looking for high-quality customer service, education, and robust trading platform,” he added.
The appointment is the first move at AxiCorp since the recruitment of Ivan Rojas as its Head of Latin America and Spain earlier this month.
