Exinity, which was founded in 2020 by Andrey Dashin, owner of brokerage companies Alpari and FXTM, has appointed Sammy Christou as its new chief risk officer.

Sammy Christou

With an extensive background in foreign exchange markets, Christou joins Exinity coming from Advanced Markets where he held an analogues role for more than a year.

In his new position as CRO, Sammy will work with the executive team with responsibility for administering Exinity’s risk management framework including the exposure management and capital modelling functions across the group. With a lengthy career dating back to 2008, he joins in a key senior management role, bringing a hands-on approach to international risk management.

Before coming to Advanced Markets, Christou was head of trading at Equiti Capital, where he worked more than three years based in London. Prior to that, he was a senior trader at GAIN Capital, then joined London Capital Group to take on an expanded role.

Exinity’s story goes back to 1998

Exinity Group was launched by entrepreneur Andrey Dashin, chaired by FXTM Co-founder, Olga Rybalkina. The group is comprised of the various retail businesses owned by Dashin, which includes Alpari International, ForexTime (FXTM) and AcruPay, a money transfer and payments service. A few months later, the company secured an FX brokerage license in Kenya.

Exinity’s entrant into the African forex scene was preceded by EGM Securities Ltd (FXPesa), which received its first license in 2018, followed by SCFM Ltd (Scope Markets) in 2019, Pepperstone in 2020, and most recently HotForex. This brokerage license allows Exinity Capital East Africa to provide its clients with access to currency markets but without being engaged in market-making or managed accounts activities.

Exinity’s story goes back to the first days of online forex trading with the founding of the Alpari Group in 1998. Alpari expanded rapidly in the world’s emerging markets and was joined in 2011 by its sister brand, FXTM.

Together, both brands have established a strong global presence in online trading, serving over three million clients in 180 countries from regulated centres across four continents.
