At ETX Capital, Mr. Saks Will be responsible for the research and analysis affairs of the retail CFD broker.

Andrew Saks, the founder of FinanceFeeds, has joined ETX Capital as Head of Research and Analysis.

Mr. Saks is moving to the FCA-regulated CFD broker based in London after five years providing news and commentary at FinanceFeeds, which he founded and was the CEO until earlier this year.

He sold the company in December 2020 and became employed by FinanceFeeds under its new ownership during a transition period.

Until February 2021, he was responsible for the operational and editorial remit, and client relationships following the acquisition of the firm.

FinanceFeeds spoke to Mr. Saks about the appointment and the excitement was palpable.

“Having the fabulous opportunity to be appointed into this senior role by longstanding and well established London based company ETX Capital is a great privilege.

“I very much look forward to working with the highly skilled team and to a fabulous future in this major step in my career, and to taking my part in the exciting new initiatives relating to the continual evolution of the company”.

The 30-year veteran grew his taste for the trading industry as a provider of software services consultancy in the UK for 18 years.

He specialized in transition and platform/application delivery in retail and institutional FX R&D and provisioning.

His passion brought him to the specialized news media, first to Forex Magnates (rebranded to Finance Magnates) as Editor, then to Leap Rate as Managing Editor, before launching his own venue.

FinanceFeeds was co-founded by Andrew Saks and Noam Stiekema.

At ETX Capital, Mr. Saks Will be responsible for the research and analysis affairs of the retail CFD broker.
