One of the biggest forex brokers in Turkey, Integral Menkul Degerler, has selected its longtime veteran Saffet Ülker as the director of international markets. He previously served as the firm’s manager / head dealer of leveraged trades.
Integral Menkul Değerler is a subsidiary of Ulukartal Holding, and is one of just a handful of FX brokers that are regulated and have a license from the country’s watchdog, the Capital Markets Board of Turkey.
Saffet has been a mainstay at Integral Menkul since 2011 and his promotion comes after a lengthy stint at the financial service provider. He initially served as a leveraged trades specialist where he was in charge of executing company’s treasury operations. In addition, he was involved in designing financial risk management programs and providing financial and risk management support for clients who are actively trading commodities, foreign exchange and future contracts.
