The direction GKFX is taking during these challenging times in Europe is to onboard a seasoned institutional sales professional. Guerbouz has been leading sales efforts for Alpha Capital Market and ICM Capital from Dubai.
While the EU retail market is becoming more and more difficult, the brokerage industry has been shifting its focus towards the institutional space. Guerbouz was Institutional Sales Manager at Alpha for over three years.
His most recent position was as Institutional Business Development Manager at ICM Capital over the past three years.
GKFX will be operating in Dubai via a representative office license. Guerbouz will be reporting to the company’s London headquarters.
