Multi-regulated FX and CFDs broker, BDSwiss has continued attracting top-tier talent with the appointment of Andreas Neokleous as its newest Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Prior to joining BDSwiss, Mr. Neokleous held a number of senior business development and IT positions at many financial service groups, most recently at IronFX as its head of project and product management. That was preceded by a short stint in an analogues role at technology and outsourcing services firm Supernova Consulting.

Additionally, Neokleous served at many other firms, mostly based out of Limassol, Cyprus where he spent the bulk of his professional career that dates back to 2007. A five-year tenure at XM.COM took his career between 2014 and 2019.

Nicolas Shamtanis, CEO at BDSwiss commented on the appointment: “Andreas Neocleous has an outstanding reputation in the Forex and CFD trading industry and we’re very pleased to be welcoming him on board. In an increasingly demanding fintech arena, having a strong COO with a focus on technology can be instrumental in our product and client experience optimisation efforts. I am confident that Andreas’ wealth of expertise will benefit not only our internal operations but will also support our current expansion plans and contribute to BDSwiss’ continued success.”

BDSwiss is a multi-asset broker

BDSwiss has recently undergone a series of new hires, having promoted Nicolas Shamtanis to take on the role of its chief executive officer (CEO). The FX industry veteran has originally joined the multi-asset broker back in September 2021 as Deputy CEO.

BDSwiss Group is a multi-asset broker that has been operating since 2012. The brokerage firm itself was established in Zurich, Switzerland, yet its group of companies operates in several jurisdictions and now serves clients in over 180 countries.

BDSwiss is authorized and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) under license number 199/13. This regulatory status offers a cross-border approval that permits the company to provide investment services within the European Economic Area (EEA) zone.

In addition to its primary authorization by CySEC, BDSwiss holds other licenses to serve clients from different jurisdictions. This includes approvals from the financial services regulators in Mauritius and Seychelles.
