The Jordan-based subsidiary of CFI Financial Group Holding, which operates under the brand Credit Financial Invest for Financial Brokerage Limited (CFI Jordan), is getting a fresh injection of capital after securing the required approvals.
CFI Jordan, which received a Jordan Securities Commission (JSC) license in January, has raised $4 million (JOD 2.8 million) from its parent. The new funds will be used for expansion after what it called “ a successful start in Jordan” and its ability within a short period of time to attract “a substantial number of clients.”
The company has been pretty busy over that 12-month period, most recently it has registered a new branch in the City of London. With the opening of the UK branch, CFI is currently licensed and regulated to operate its forex and CFDs business in London, Beirut, Larnaca, Dubai, and Amman.
