abdelaziz Fathi

Alexis Droussiotis has been appointed as head of Match-Trader, a multi-asset trading platform developed by California-based FX technology provider Match-Trade Technologies.

His appointment comes after several similar roles at other institutional venues over the course of a career spanning more than 15 years.

Alexis ends a long stint at Swiss-founded technology company, PrimeXM, a provider of FX bridge aggregation and institutional hosting solutions, where he served most recently as its Chief Information Officer.

As its CIO, Droussiotis played a key role in the management and development of the group’s technological capabilities based out of Cyprus. Prior to his elevation, Alexis worked as PrimeXM’s Information Systems (IS) Manager for nearly four years. During this period, he was responsible for defining technical architecture and design for the company’s solutions, datacenters presence, among many other tasks. He also provided oversight and technical guidance to engineering team members across branch offices in Limassol, Dubai and Shanghai.

Additionally, Droussiotis served in a similar capacity with Spotoption, a Cyprus-based company that had been a leading binary options technology provider. He spent three years at SpotOption and left just as the company shut down its binary options business followed by ceasing FX and CFDs lines.

Droussiotis’ career encompasses various stints as IT Specialist at leading FX brokers including Alpari from 2012 to 2017, where he designed, setup and tested several trade and pricing modules. This was preceded by a three-year tenure in an analogous role with ForexTime Ltd (FXTM).

Match-Trader, operating globally since 2013, provides two options: White Label and Broker’s Own Server. It offers a range of built-in applications such as Social and Copy Trading solutions, Client Office, and Integrated Payments, which can be tailored to meet individual requirements.

Match-Trade’s flat competitive fee structure enables forex brokers to manage and predict their technology costs. The company’s offering caters to various brokers’ needs ranging from hosting services and MT white label solutions, data feed, to bridge and aggregation technology and risk management system for A Book and B Book brokers.

Match-Trade’s portfolio also includes a cryptocurrency solution for FX brokers and crypto exchanges, and the company says it has become one of its most sought-after solutions. The platform provides flexible reporting tools in real-time and ad-hoc reports creation that can be easily viewed from an interactive web interface.
