Eurotrader Group has announced its CEO Marcelo Spina will be attending the iFX EXPO Asia 2022 in Bangkok, Thailand.

The iFX EXPO Asia 2022 will take place between September 13 and 15, 2022, at Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld in Bangkok, Thailand.

The event will gather more than 100 speakers and thousands of attendees and will serve as an opportunity for senior executives to network
with prospective South East Asian business partners.

Eurotrader to explore Asian markets and usher in new era of action in the region

Eurotrader, founded by Dr Ozan Ozerk, is a fully licensed and regulated retail broker in forex, stocks, crypto, indices, and commodities.

The multi asset broker brings a modern approach to trading and aims to accelerate its growth by strengthening the team ahead of upcoming product launches.

Marcelo Spina, Chief Executive Officer at Eurotrader Group, commented: “We are really excited to attend the iFX EXPO Asia 2022! What we expect from Eurotrader’s participation is to explore the Asian markets and usher in a new era of action in the region. There could not be a better platform than iFX EXPO Asia 2022 to network with the right people and form new strong partnerships in South East Asia.”

Eurotrader leverages Marcelo Spina’s reputation within FX industry

The CySEC-regulated broker hired Marcelo Spina as CEO in August. He brings over two decades of experience in the financial service industry, having worked with an array of investment firms across his lengthy career that dates back to 1995. He most recently served as CEO of a Operar FX, a start-up he founded last year to smooth the online trading experience for both B2B and B2C sides.

Prior to that, Spina was global head of business development at FCA-regulated ThinkMarkets. He joined ThinkMarkets after a short stint with ForexTime (FXTM) where he spent seven months as head of partnerships, based out of London.

Prior to landing at FXTM, Spina was the director of institutional sales at Saxo Capital Markets, from December 2017 to January 2019. The bulk of his career in the FX industry, however, was at Gain Capital where he spent nearly ten years as a senior vice president of global operations and latterly as head of partnerships.

Spina’s tenure at GAIN Capital is not his first foray into the FX industry. Prior to joining the broker in April 2008, he worked as the vice president of sales at FXCM for over three years, dating back to April 2005.
