FCA-regulated ThinkMarkets, a multi-asset brokerage offering forex, CFDs and commodity products, has appointed industry veteran Marcelo Spina as Global Head of Business Development.
Spina brings over two decades of experience in the financial service industry, having worked with an array of investment firms across his lengthy career that dates back to 1995.
He joins ThinkMarkets after a short stint with ForexTime (FXTM) where he spent seven months as Head of Partnerships, based out of London.
Prior to landing at FXTM, Spina was the director of institutional sales at Saxo Capital Markets, from December 2017 to January 2019. The bulk of his career in the FX industry, however, was at Gain Capital where he spent nearly ten years as a senior vice president of global operations and latterly as head of partnerships.

ThinkMarkets (formerly ThinkForex) is a multi-licensed online forex brokerage firm, authorized and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).
The firm has recently expanded its global footprint through its newly licensed South African firm. Specifically, the broker will offer both South African and international products, such as single-stock CFDs, stock indices, currencies, and commodities via its trading platform.
Also earlier this year, ThinkMarkets introduced a new package of customized algorithmic and automated trading solutions. Dubbed ‘ThinkZero,’ the product encompasses the firm’s trading technology and order management system to provide low spreads and fast order execution on a wide array of financial derivatives.
