Blackwell Global, an international brokerage and liquidity provider, has announced the new hiring of Ali Almasri, as the newest member of its Business Development unit.
Almasri can look back on a substantial sales background in the FX and CFD industry and his addition is expected to provide a boost to Blackwell Global’s business development team.
Launching his career as an Account Manager at Iron FX in early 2014, Almasri remained in the position for over a year and a half. He then joined ARGUSFX in August 2015, taking on the position of Middle East Sales Manager, where he endured a short three-month stint with the company.
Almasri then joined the Cyprus offices of iFOREX, remaining in the position for a period of 10 months, prior to parting ways with the company. In August 2016, he took on the role of Middle East Business Development Manager for BDSwiss, and successfully maintained the position until July 2017.

Almasri joins Blackwell at an interesting time, as the company continues to expand into new markets. Blackwell Global recently acquired an Asset Management license from the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC), allowing the company to offer financial services, as well as to engage in operations within Hong Kong.
While the company already successfully obtained various types of licenses from the SFC, its drive to gain the asset management license illustrates the broker’s commitment to offering a wide range of financial services and to take its place as an influential broker in the region.
The expansionary efforts of Blackwell are not only applied to various geographical regions. The company has also worked to adhere to the increasing global demand for cryptocurrencies.
Last month, Blackwell officially added Bitcoin to its list of funding methods, further promoting the asset as part of its operational capacity. Since then, clients of Blackwell have been able to fund their accounts directly from their Bitcoin wallets.
