Earlier this week, Finance Magnates reported that the UK FCA has opened the door for Divisa Capital to expand its operations to the retail FX market after approving its investment deal with a Saudi Arabian family office. One of the first moves of the company was to register two new trading names – Equiti Global Markets and equiti.com.
Equiti has plotted its global expansion path as it announced the appointment of former Managing Director of ADS Securities Iskandar Najjar as its CEO. In addition, the recent hires of Hormoz Faryar as Head of Institutional Sales, Mohamed Isbeer on the brokerage side and Lauren Kiley on the PB business side are a glimpse into the number of projects the company are working on, explained Mushegh Tovmasyan, CEO of Divisa Capital.
