Exclusive: Former IG marketing expert Ollie Rosewell becomes Head of Marketing at ETX Capital

After 9 months at AFX Group, former IG Group marketing expert Ollie Rosewell becomes Head of Marketing at ETX Capital


A new year, a new career move for Ollie Rosewell, who has this week joined British CFD and spread betting firm ETX Capital as Head of Marketing.

Mr Rosewell joins ETX Capital from compatriot spread betting and CFD firm AFX Group, where he was Head of Marketing from April 2016 until December 2016.


A one and a half year tenure at London Capital Group (now LCG) preceded Mr. Rosewell’s position at AFX Group, Mr. Rosewell having joined London Capital Group in January 2015 as Head of Brand Marketing.

In March 2016, Mr Rosewell also left LCG at the time during which a mass exodus occurred at the firm.

Mr. Rosewell joined LCG almost immediately post-acquisition, having previously worked at British CFD and spread betting giant IG Group where he spent 8 years as Senior Marketing Manager, after a 3 year stint at M&G in London.

Edcuated at Bournemouth University, Mr Rosewell holds a BA (Hons) degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications, from which he graduated in 2004.
