Rick Steves

The UK entity was founded three years ago and is said to be actively seeking new investment and growth opportunities.

Finveo has appointed Iain Rogers as the Chief Executive Officer for the UK FCA-regulated entity, Finveo Limited, owned by Turkish Inveo Investment.

Iain Rogers was most recently the executive director of GKFX, the UK entity of Turkish FX brokerage GKG Group, where he executed the firm’s refocus to target wholesale clients after GKG’s decision to migrate the retail operation to AKFX.

The new institutional focus came amid ESMA’s new rules on CFD products for retail traders, including lower leverage.

From 2017 through 2019, he held top roles at Pepperstone: Executive Director at Pepperstone Limited (UK) and Managing Director at Pepperstone GmbH (Germany).

Prior to that, Mr. Rogers was Chief Executive Officer at Admiral Markets UK Ltd after serving as a compliance specialist for nearly two years at the firm.

Other roles throughout his career within the trading industry include Senior Sales Trader at Enigma Securities, Senior Market Maker at Matrix Investment Banking Division, Senior Equity Execution and Compliance Consultant at Schneider Trading Associates Limited, Executive Director at Lite Financial Limited, Market Maker at HSBC Investment Bank, and Market Maker at SG Warburg Securities, where he started his career in 1990.

Iain Rogers arrived at Finveo in August 2021, but only now it was made public. The UK entity was founded three years ago and is said to be actively seeking new investment and growth opportunities.

Iain Rogers, Chief Executive Officer at Finveo Ltd, said: “I’m thrilled to be leading the Finveo UK team, we are building on the existing strong foundations that already exists across the Inveo group of companies through collaboration and innovation. I will be working to accelerate the firm’s effort in becoming a key element within the online trading ecosystem for exchange traded and OTC products and services.”

Onur Topac, Vice Chairman of Inveo Investment Holding, added: “I’m pleased to announce the appointment of Iain Rogers as the new Chief Executive Officer of Finveo UK effective from 23 August 2021. His broad experience and knowledge to this important role will be an asset to Finveo along with his exceptional track record of growing businesses and delivering strategic transformation. His appointment reflects the ambition of Inveo’s 5 year $100 million planned investment into geographical and digital expansion”

Inveo is a holding company that owns the Turkish Capital Markets Flagship, Gedik Investment Securities, Marbaş Securities (TR), Finveo (Montenegro), and newly established INVEO Bank.
