‎Leyhane ‎will lead IG Group’s compliance team across the Europe, ‎Middle ‎East, and African (EMEA) region, where he will be tasked with ‎ensuring ‎adherence to the relevant rules, regulations and guidelines that the ‎firm is ‎bound by. Given the increasingly global nature of the business and a ‎‎regulatory landscape that is constantly evolving, this is a greater challenge ‎‎now than ever before.‎

IG has undergone several management changes last year. In November, its ‎‎long-serving UK director Alastair Hine announced his retirement after ‎nearly two decades at the firm. Earlier in July, it appointed Paul Mainwaring ‎as Chief ‎Financial Officer (CFO) Designate, who replaced Mark Ward as ‎was ‎originally planned.‎

IG has ambitions to expand into new overseas markets. It recently ‎‎established a US subsidiary and appointed Mr Rupert Simon Toby ‎‎Osbourne as CEO.‎
