According to company house filings dated today, the FCA-regulated brokerage XTB limited has elevated Marcus Ford to director, reflecting the March 11th registrations with the FCA that include his new CF1 Director role as well as CF10 and CF11 distinctions for compliance oversight and AML reporting respectively.
Having studied at Ashton University in Birmingham, Mr. Ford’s background in related compliance positions includes being previously with Plus500 for just over a year, after nearly two years with OANDA in similar compliance roles, and after four years with a pre-paid services provider, as per a LinkedIn profile attributed to him.
Also listed was that Mr. Ford has been with XTB since last July, and thus the new roles can be seen as a promotion or elevation with additional responsibilities as part of the new directorship. According to FCA register background information, Mr. Ford held similar positions with OANDA Europe, including the CF29 which is a director distinction for significant management.
XTB also announced earlier today via a website update that as of April 4th one of its Italian language urls would redirect instead to its Polish partner X-Trade Brokers DM S.A.
