Egemen Kaya, former Saxo Bank mainstay and financial services veteran, has landed at Alnus Yatırım Menkul Değerler A.Ş., having joined the group as its newest Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with immediate effect, Finance Magnates has learned.
Mr. Kaya is no stranger to the foreign exchange (FX) industry, having been a part of it since his initial tenure at Saxo Bank back in 2002. He originally began his career at Saxo during this time as its senior FX trader, helping manage FX spot and proprietary trading activities with a specific focus on JPY and G10 crosses.

This led to a promotion as Saxo’s Head of Emerging Markets FX and Precious Metals Trading Desk in 2005, a position he held for over six years. In this capacity he helped set up and develop the broker’s Emerging Markets (EM) FX and precious metals desk as well as fortifying a significant expansion in Saxo’s EM FX and Precious Metals trading capabilities.
In 2012 he moved to Istanbul to take on the role of CEO at Saxo Capital Markets Menkul Degerler A.S., working in this position since last August. During this time, he also held a position on Saxo’s Board of Directors until November 2015, according to information made public on his Linkedin profile.
