As Finance Magnates reported earlier, he joined Tickmill at the beginning of 2020 as the group CFO, but left the position only after one-and-a-half years. Prior to that, he was the UK CEO and Chief Financial Officer at the London Capital Group, where he served almost four years.
Additionally, he served for more than half a decade at GAIN Capital, which is now owned by StoneX, as the Financial Director of international operations. Moreover, he spent four years of his career as a Group Financial Controller at City Index, and the brokerage brand is now under the control of StoneX.
Chowdhury is an economics graduate from the University of East London and started his career in 2002 at ING as an Interest Rate Derivatives Controller, according to his Linkedin profile. He also spent years at JPMorgan Chase and Matrix Group Limited.
Chowdhury took over the broker at a time when the demand for retail trading is skyrocketing. Earlier, Trading212 saw multiple glitches during the trading frenzy hours, and now it is to be seen if he would take any steps to improve such outages.
