Credit Financier Invest (CFI) Dubai has announced that Nidal Abdel Hadi has joined the company in the capacity of Deputy CEO and Global Head of Business Development.
The move marks a reunion with CFI Dubai’s CEO and Managing Director Hisham Mansour. The two have a long-standing relationship dating back to their time at MIG Bank Switzerland, where Mr. Mansour served as CEO, and Mr. Hadi served as Global Head of Institutional Clients.
The history between the two likely contributed to the onboarding decision. Mr. Mansour offered comment on the move: “I am delighted to announce Nedal’s joining our expanding team at CFI. Working together, we did great things in the past and I am sure we will do the same now. Nedal will hold a key position with us and I am sure his presence will accelerate our growth.”
CFI Group initially opened its Dubai-based CFD brokerage subsidiary in May of last year. Earlier this year, the company successfully obtained a license from the Jordan Securities Commission (JSC), thereby enabling CFI to offer financial advisory and brokerage services in local markets.

Nidal Abdel Hadi launched his financial career at MIG Investments. He became Regional Director for Switzerland-based firm, maintaining his position for three and a half years, before taking on the role of Head of Institutional Sales for MIG Bank for another six and half years.
The prolonged tenure with MIG helped him to forge business relationships that have evidently remained intact with the decision to join his former MIG Bank CEO.
In January of 2014, he joined Swissquote’s Institutional Sales unit, followed by a short stint as the Managing Director with Advanced Markets LLC. His most recent position prior to joining CFI Dubai was at ADS Securities, where he has been acting as Head of Institutional Sales for the past year.
Nidal Abdel Hadi offered his own view on the new position and reunion with his former MIG Bank CEO: “I am pleased to have joined a reputable and rapidly growing company. I have worked with Mr. Mansour for the majority of my professional career where we managed to build one of the worlds’ leading online FOREX and CFDs providers while at MIG Bank, and I look forward to our new endeavor together.”
He continued: “I have known CFI as well and Mr. Fakhoury for over 10 years now and I am excited to be associated with such revered individuals and be a part of such a dynamic, visionary and expanding group.”
