A well-known FX industry figure who has hosted panels, conducted research and provided executives all over the world with news, Adil Siddiqui moves to ThinkForex to head the firm’s operations

Adil Siddiqui is a long-standing and very prominent figure in the FX industry.

Not only is he a well-regarded and integral part of London’s electronic trading industry, but has spent many years hosting senior executives from across the world on some of the industry’s important topics in panel discussions from London to Limassol.

Mr. Siddiqui, alongside his brokerage responsibilities that span London’s institutional and retail businesses to introducing broker networks in the Indian Subcontinent, has reported on global FX industry events, news, and conducted extensive research in an engaging editorial style for several years.

Today, however, marks Mr. Siddiqui’s next career move, an elevation to senior executive level, as he becomes Director of Operations at ThinkForex, based in London.

Aside from his reporting and editorial efforts at Finance Magnates where he spent five years as Institutional Editor, keeping industry executives across the world informed, Mr. Siddiqui simultaneously spent four years at Tradenext in London as Director of Compliance, Operations and MLRO & Risk, having joined the firm in 2012 from Wall Street Systems, where he spent almost two years as Business Analyst for FX and Treasury.

In April 2009, Mr. Siddiqui joined Alpari UK, where he spent a year and a half as Institutional Executive, looking after partnerships and high net worth individuals.

Dating back to 2007, Mr. Siddiqui was a Sales Executive across FX, CFDs, equities, futures and options at ODL Securities in London, leaving the firm in March 2009 to join Alpari.

Some 10 years ago, Mr. Siddiqui joined CMC Markets as a Client Services agent, staying with the firm 8 months before moving to ODL Securities. CMC Markets represented a young and enterprising Mr. Siddiqui’s entry into the non-bank FX industry, as he joined the company from Lloyds TSB where he was responsible for KYC and AML procedures with regard to client onboarding, between December 2002 and October 2006.

Multilingual Mr. Siddiqui speaks six languages, and holds an alma mater from Kingston University in London in Business Studies, as well as a Diploma from the London School of Journalism.
