Management Changes under New Owner

This promotion came after the closure of ETX’s acquisition by Swiss private equity firm, Guru Capital. The two companies agreed on the deal last May but were waiting for the regulatory approval from the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). UK-based JRJ Group previously owned ETX Capital.

Neither of them disclosed the financials involved in the deal.

Headquartered in London, ETX Capital has been operating in the forex industry since 2002 and has aggressively focused on international expansion since 2010. It entered Germany and South Africa before opening local offices in Greece, Spain, and Denmark.

ETX is also strengthening its existing teams, especially its technology department. Finance Magnates earlier reported that the brokerage hired Gergely Bacsó as its new Chief Technology Officer for improving the platform’s client experience and also further building TraderPro.

Earlier this year, ETX Capital’s long-running co-CEO, John Wilson, retired after spending a decade with the brokerage. He shared the apex role with Philip Adler, who was promoted to co-CEO in February 2019. Adler is currently running the brokerage.
