The Financial Commission (FinaCom PLC), a dispute resolution service that caters to the financial services industry, has appointed former CEO of Alpari Research & Analysis, Roberto D’Ambrosio, as the newest member of its Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC).
As Finance Magnates reported earlier this week, Roberto has parted ways with Alpari, ending nearly a four-year tenure, during which he held a variety of positions at the retail FX broker.
According to the announcement, Mr. D’Ambrosio has been involved in the financial services industry since 1994 with a wide range of roles held in leading positions. He is the co-founder, CEO and CIO of Araknos Investment Managers, which operates a hedge fund advisory and management start-up company, with a focus on risk management and quantitative investment strategies.
With over 25 years of financial services experience combined with in-depth expertise, D’Ambrosio’s mission is to provide the skill set needed to understand the difficulties that clients and brokers face in key areas such as trading algorithms, platforms, and risk management.

Experience backed by academic studies
Mr. D’Ambrosio joins the Financial Commission during a time of expansion for the self-regulatory association. The commission recently added several new members to its existing roster.
His hands-on experience and knowledge are also backed by academic studies. He holds a BA in Corporate Law services, the MITC Diploma in risk management in financial services and the RIMAP/Ferma certification in risk management.
FinaCom is an independent international service that guarantees honest and timely resolution of disputes with the aim of resolving trader-broker conflicts. All clients of the Financial Commission’s members are protected by the Compensation Fund which acts as an insurance policy.
Commenting on the appointment, Financial Commission Chairman, Peter Tatarnikov, said: “Roberto has a solid background in risk management and trading that he approaches from many angles, so his input will surely be significant in assisting with the resolution of disputes. His experience as a mentor will also help us educate traders throughout the resolution process as well”.
