Australian retail FX brokerage AxiTrader continues to evolve and increase its global presence under the leadership of urbane and sophisticated CEO Rajesh Yohannan who began the international expansion of the company following his assuming of the leadership position earlier this year after joining the firm from OANDA Corporation where he was CEO for the APAC region.

The latest step in this direction is AxiTrader’s appointment this week of Ivan Rojas to lead the company’s Spanish and Latin American operations.

Mr. Rojas joins AxiCorp from Argosy Global Advisors in New York, a company which provides risk management services and liquidity consultation for retail brokers across the world.

Mr. Rojas spent 6 months at the institutional consultancy firm before being recruited by AxiTrader.

Prior to joining Argosy Global Advisors, Mr. Rojas had a one and a half year tenure at Fortress Prime, leaving in December 2015 at the time that the company went out of business.

Between February 2013 and May 2014, Mr. Rojas was eFX Prime Brokerage Sales Lead for Latin America and Spain at Boston Technologies, having joined the company from FXCM where he spent almost six years as Team Captain for Spain and Latin America, based in New York.

Rajesh Yohannan, CEO of AxiCorp, says Rojas’ appointment is vital as the company focuses on tapping new markets.

“Ivan has a solid track record in Latin America,” said Rajesh Yohannan, AxiCorp’s Chief Executive. “As we tap into new markets we need someone like him who knows the landscape very well.”

The Latin American market will give AxiCorp access to countries like Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru where FX trading is growing at a rapid phase.

While FX trading in the Latin American region has been mostly done at the institutional level, the availability of online trading has opened up the markets to retail and individual traders.

Talking about his new role with AxiCorp, Ivan Rojas said, “Latin America must be one of the markets with the most potential for growth. And I’m keen to be part of AxiCorp’s expansion in this market.”

He added, “Latin America is also under serviced at this stage because most FX providers have been focused on the European and Asian markets. With my focus in this region, current AxiCorp clients will be assured of our world-class service and resources,”

“There’s a big potential in this market due to the growing middle-class population and we will work hard to bring in more and new clients,” Rojas said.

At the same Rojas noted that Latin American investors are becoming savvier and open to new trading and investment instruments such as FX, commodities, and indices.

“I have seen dramatic changes in this market over the past 10 years that I’ve been working here. It used to be a small market but now more people are getting to FX trading as they pick up more knowledge and education about FX trading,” Rojas said.
