Trade.io has continued making headlines in 2019 with the appointment of its newest Chief Technology Officer, Joaquim Pedro Antunes, Finance Magnates has learned. Mr. Antunes’ appointment is tendered with immediate effect and will be looking to steer the group in H2 2019.
Trade.io has recently made a splash with the launch of its FX trading brand, TIOmarkets. Following a surge of signups and client demand, the brand has since gone live as of last week. Previously, in a bid to help strengthen its regulatory footprint and presence in Europe, Trade.io acquired last year Primus Capital Markets.
For his part, Mr. Antunes steps into his new role with over two decades of experience in the fintech, banking, and capital markets space. He has a penchant for emerging technologies, with his prior roles reflecting this area of focus.
