Vaghela has also held a variety of positions at binary options, foreign exchange, precious metals, and CFD broker, Alpari Group. His positions included Business Analyst and Product Coordinator. In 2005, Vaghela began his career as a Dealer at City Credit Capital.
The appointment of Vaghela follows the announcement that Brian Myers was appointed as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Divisa UK Limited, a subsidiary of Equiti Group. Similar to Vaghela, Myers joined the company from GKFX, where he was the CEO also.
Equiti in Kenya
Vaghela’s appointment comes at an interesting time for the company. With shifting regulations in the European Union, the company has been increasing its operations in East Africa. Through its subsidiary EGM Securities Limited, it required the first online forex broker license in Kenya from the country’s Capital Markets Authority (CMA).
Following the acquisition of a license, earlier this month Finance Magnates reported that EGM Securities had launched the first online regulated non-dealing forex broker in East Africa. Through the platform, traders can invest in global macro opportunities such as foreign exchange, oil, gold, other precious metals, and commodities.
