CAPEX.com onboards NAGA’s Maria Evripidou as head of product
Abu Dhabi-based broker CAPEX.com has appointed Maria Evripidou as their new head of product.
In her new role, Maria will report directly to Octavian Patrascu, Global CEO of CAPEX.com. She will be tasked with driving the expansion of CAPEX’s product range while implementing strategic business plans.
Maria is ending a seven-year tenure with German broker NAGA Group, which took her entire career within the financial services industry. During this long stint, she worked his way up through several senior roles with the firm, culminating with the position of head of product. Maria originally joined NAGA back in 2016 as an operation officer.
“We are thrilled to have Maria Evripidou join our team as the new Head of Product for our global operations. With her wealth of experience in the finance sector, we are confident that Maria will infuse a fresh perspective and innovative ideas for our endeavours. We eagerly anticipate collaborating closely with her to sustain our business momentum and deliver exceptional results for our esteemed clients, and partners.”, commented Octavian Patrascu, Global CEO of CAPEX.com on the new hire.
Maria Evripidou added: “Being part of CAPEX.com fills me with immense excitement – it’s an energetic and forward-thinking brokerage; with a commitment to embracing progressive ideas in the financial services sector, and prioritising exceptional client service, we are presented with a remarkable opportunity to continue to build on CAPEX’s success journey together. Collaborating with a team of highly skilled professionals, whose ranks are continuously expanding, ignites my passion to further elevate the firm’s already impressive accomplishments in the realm of multi-asset trading and FinTech.”
The new appointment comes a few months after CAPEX.com expanded it regulatory profile in the MENA region. Most recently, the company received in-principle approval to conduct a full spectrum of virtual assets business in Abu Dhabi, the firm’s CEO announced today.
The license allows its parent, Key Way Markets Ltd, to bring the CAPEX.com brand closer to clients in the Middle East, with major focus to the United Arab Emirates. The in-principle approval for its crypto business comes to complete the picture as the company already holds the ADGM FSRA license to offer traditional financial services.
The CAPEX.com brand, which received its first license in 2016, is currently providing services across Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, Latin America, and South-East Asia. The company’s regulatory catalogue encompasses licenses from the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission, Abu Dhabi Global Market Financial Services Regulatory Authority, and the Financial Sector Conduct Authority in South Africa.
