Admiral Markets AS Opens Its First Subsidiary in Jordan

The office will be located in Amman with a workforce of 10 employees.

Estonia-based Admiral Markets AS, operating with the tradename Admiral Markets, has announced on Monday the official opening of its subsidiary in Jordan as part of its expansion in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. According to the company, it required over €4 million to expand to such a nation.

The agreement was reportedly settled on June 6 this year, when Admiral Markets AS was granted a license by the Jordan authorities to operate in Amman, with an office that will start with 10 employees, becoming the first Estonian company to run a business in Jordan.

“The Middle East and North Africa region is home to 600 million people, which means a great potential for us to grow our customer base and gain a larger market share while looking to provide the opportunity for people in the region to experience the joys of alternative financial products which we have seen take off so successfully in Europe over the last [few] years,” Sergei Bogatenkov, Admiral Markets AS CEO, commented, who also praised the faster IT industry development in the region.
