INFINOX lures veteran Sophie Squillacioti to head Asia operations
London-headquartered INFINOX today announced its newest senior appointment this year, bringing in Shanghai-based FX industry veteran Sophie Squillacioti to boost its Asian operations.
Ms. Squillacioti joins INFINOX with nearly two decades of senior sales experience, with particular emphasis on the domain of retail products into the APAC region. Most recently Sophie served as Head of Asia at BDSwiss, where she spent less than 10 months.
Prior to that, Sophie worked her way up through several senior roles with BlackBull Markets, culminating with the position of Managing Director for China. There she spent nearly three years tasked with building out the company’s presence and business in the region.
Ms. Squillacioti also steps into her position with a lengthy background in FX execution, liquidity, trading connectivity and risk management. This includes short stints at ACM Group, IFX MARKETS and CBFXCBFX. She spent the bulk of her career within the foreign exchange industry at City Index, responsible for establishing the company’s business in China and Asia.
Commenting on her move to INFINOX, Squillacioti said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the INFINOX team at such a defining stage for the business. The company is currently looking towards a fast pace of growth and expansion in Asia, and going forward, I’m excited at the prospects of what we can achieve together here at INFINOX.”
Robert Berkeley, CEO of INFINOX, added: “Sophie’s addition to our team comes in the backdrop of ongoing efforts at INFINOX to scale our business footprint in Asia. Our efforts are fully directed at boosting our presence in existing markets, where we are currently thriving, while stepping into potential markets, where we see significant opportunities. Sophie’s proven track record and prowess in building teams and growth within the business are vital to the success of these efforts.”
Based out of Dubai, Sophie 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.
