Capital.com has hired Alessandro Capuano as its Head of Europe which came as a push for the broker’s growth ambitions in the continent. He has already joined the broker and is reporting directly to Kypros Zoumidou, Capital.com’s Chief Commercial Officer.

“As we continue to add to the team to support our growth ambitions, I am delighted to welcome Alessandro. I worked with him for many years and look forward to doing so again,” said Peter Hetherington, Group CEO at Capital.com and the former Head of IG.

Capuano joined Capital.com from IG where he has been the Head of Exchange Traded Products for the last couple of years. Additionally, he had a previous tenure at IG for almost 13 years. Then, he parted with the London-headquartered broker as its Head of Europe, based out of the group’s offices in London, Dusseldorf and Milan but with continental coverage.

He brings two decades of industry experience to his new role. In between his tenure at IG, he was the Head of Global Brokerage at Fineco Bank.

He started his career in 2001, according to his Linkedin profile, and was also the Head of Italian Desk Finspreads IFX (Now City Index).

“With his extensive experience building teams and driving business across Europe, he will be instrumental to our global growth strategy and help us meet the exacting needs of our European client base,” Hetherington added.

Other Moves

Moreover, Capital.com, a brand owned by Viktor Prokopenya, has made several other key appointments over recent months. Most recently, Tim Plummer, another former IG executive, joined the broker as the Head of Product Strategy.

Other significant appointments in the company include Christopher Brankin as Singapore CEO, Angela Shi as the APAC CFO, and Laura Lin as the APAC CEO. On top of that, the broker saw a few exits as Simon Henry left last month to join Exness as Compliance Director and the resignation of Chief Market Strategist David Jones.
