INFINOX hires ADSS’ Aaron Brown to lead MENA institutional sales

London-headquartered INFINOX has just announced its latest appointment, this time on-boarding Aaron Brown as head of institutional sales for the MENA region.

Aaron Brown

Brown joins INFINOX with two decades of experience to enhance its institutional sales team in Middle East markets, with the group eyeing a broader focus and growth in the region.

Brown served most recently at Abu Dhabi headquartered international brokerage ADSS as a senior executive at eFX & CFDs institutional sales desk, a position he held for more than two years. He was apparently promoted to Senior Institutional Sales Manager as he moved to the Emirates from the City, where he has worked 15 years.

Prior to landing at the middle-east focused broker, Brown spent five months as vice president of institutional sales of eFX & CFDs at CFH Clearing Limited, preceded by one year at Global Market Index Limited (GMI), where he held an analogous role from August 2018 to July 2019.

Before joining GMI, Aaron worked at FXCM for more than four years, having risen through the ranks of a multitude of FX retail and IB sales roles. During his tenure with the group, which dates back to 2014, he also held the position of FXCM’s head of institutional and IB sales across its FX, CFDs and spread betting desks.

INFINOX ADSS consistently focuses on new markets

Commenting on his appointment, Brown said “I’m very honoured to be joining the INFINOX and IXO Prime teams. Having worked in the industry for a number of years, I’ve watched INFINOX’s rapid growth and been really impressed by the presence they’ve created during that period. When the opportunity to join the company was presented, I was thrilled to accept it and play a part in its continued international growth in the MENA region.”

The move to hire Brown is clearly intended to boost bottom-line sales and expand the reach of Infinox operations as it continues to build market share.  He will be supporting the growth of the IXO Prime division, which has been extending its liquidity distribution, globally as well as in the MENA region.

The multi-asset liquidity solution is backed by a global trading infrastructure, and offers over 300 trading instruments. Additionally, clients can access more benefits such as IXO Position Keeper, technology, white label offerings and more.

Originally called GO Markets UK, the firm rebranded to INFINOX in 2014. As an FCA-regulated brokerage, Infinox offers its trading services to clients on a global scale. The company has had its sights on growing its business in the aftermath of recent industry changes, and the brokerage has already opted to diversify its product range and clientele.
