Capital.com has strengthened its Asia Pacific leadership with its latest recruitment of Angela Shi as the Chief Financial Officer, APAC.

“I’m happy to share that I’m starting a new position as Chief Financial Officer - APAC at Capital.com!” Shi wrote in a Linkedin post. She has already begun her new role at the brokerage.

She is a trained accounting professional and brings more than a decade of experience to the new role.

Shi joined Capital.com from Dacxi, a technology company in the cryptocurrency space, where she was the Head of Finance for a year.

But, her most notable industry experience was with Plus500. She worked at the broker for almost five years and separated in May 2020 as its Chief Financial Officer, Australia.

She started her career at StoneX Retail, another prominent player in the forex , CFDs and exchange-traded markets, according to her Linkedin profile. She joined there as a Financial Controller and was later promoted to Head of Finance, APAC (excluding China).

Strengthening APAC Leadership

Though primarily based in Europe, Capital.com’s ambitions for Asia-Pacific came to light with several key hires last year. It hired Laura Lin last September as the APAC CEO, who brought years of experience from IG and headed Mitrade Group while launching its Australian operations.

Additionally, the broker onboarded Chul Lim as the Asia Chief Executive Officer, who has been tasked with overseeing the broker’s expansion in East Asia, including South Korea, Japan and the Southeast Asian region.

Meanwhile, the group had a reshuffle in its top leadership as the former IG Head, Peter Hetherington took over as the CEO of Capital.com and Currency.com in May after the resignation of Jon Squires.
