Infinox Capital, a UK-headquartered forex brokerage with an office in Shanghai, has appointed Ulas Akincilar as its newest Head of Trading.
Akincilar stepped into his new role in January, based out of the group’s London office, according to information made public on his LinkedIn profile. He will help solidify Infinox’s operations, bringing several years of expertise in the FX space to the role.
Originally called GO Markets UK, the firm rebranded to INFINOX in 2014. As an FCA-regulated brokerage, Infinox offers its trading services to clients on a global scale. Earlier this week, the company exclusively shared with Finance Magnates that it has appointed Sam Chaney as Head of International Business Development at INFINOX Capital. The news comes in light of the company’s expanding focus on new markets and products around the world for 2019.
Prior to INFINOX, Akincilar has served for a short stint with FCA-regulated brokerage firm House of Borse Limited (HoB) as Head of Trading and Risk Management.

The departure of Akincilar came barely nine months after installing him in the position back in March 2018. He confirmed to Finance Magnates that he left House of Borse on good terms. He joined the middle east-focused broker after nearly a decade in the FX and trading technology space, having worked at a number of leading venues in the industry.
Ulas joined House of Borse from Gold-i, a trading systems integration specialist for the financial services industry. He most recently served as Technical Support Engineer, a position he held for nearly 15 months.
Akincilar also worked as FX Transactions Director at A1 Capital Menkul Degerler from July 2015 until December 2017, and then joined E-FX Capital Markets as Treasury & Risk Manager where he stayed for nearly two years.
Akincilar earned his bachelor’s degree in geomatics engineering from Istanbul Technical University in Turkey.
