Finance Magnates learned on Thursday that Samantha Roady would be stepping down from her role at GAIN Capital at the end of next month.
Regulatory filings state that Roady, who is president of the broker’s retail trading business, is leaving the company to “pursue other interests outside the leveraged trading industry.”
GAIN Capital CEO Glen Stevens will assume Roady’s role once she has left the company. It is unclear as to whether Stevens will hold that position for the long run or if the New York-based broker will be looking for an external executive to replace Roady.

She joined the retail trading firm as a founding partner back in 1999. Originally an SVP in the broker’s marketing department, she became chief marketing officer in 2006.
After just over seven years in that position, she became chief commercial officer in 2013. Three years afterward, she was promoted again – this time to become president of the company’s retail trading division.
For the past decade, Roady has also been an executive director at GAIN Capital UK, a British subsidiary of the US broker and the company that operates City Index.
Alongside her role at GAIN Capital, Roady has also been a member of the board of directors for MoneyLion, a mobile finance platform based in the US, since late 2016.
