Who is attending?

The Invast Global team that will be attending the iFX EXPO Dubai 2023 includes: 

  • Riana Chaili, CEO of EMEA at Invast Global

Riana Chaili, Chief Executive Officer of Invast Global EMEA, commented: “After the Christmas break, I’m looking forward to catching up with so many business partners and clients at the expo.” Drawing from her extensive experience as Chief Dealer at IC Markets, Riana possesses a deep understanding of what retail brokers truly require to build a successful business. Riana continued: “[t]he Expo is a great opportunity to connect with European and Middle Eastern based brokerages and showcase our tier 1 multi-asset liquidity offering.”

She joined the Aussie broker in July 2021 as Managing Director of Cyprus. In May 2022, she was promoted to CEO of EMEA, based out of Limassol. She represented Invast at last year’s iFX EXPO Dubai, where she headlined the Female Industry Leaders panel, discussing the importance of accessibility and diversity in driving growth. We had the opportunity to interview her there.

  • Lochlan White, Chief Commercial Officer at Invast Global

Lochlan White, Chief Commercial Officer of Invast Global EMEA, said: “Over the past year following the pandemic, we have seen just how important the iFX Expos are to the broking industry, acting as an information exchange and providing a setting for the development of mutually beneficial partnerships that endure well into the future. Speaking with and meeting people, particularly in the upcoming financial center of Dubai, just as our business is focusing on the MENA region; it’s truly a great opportunity.”

Based in Cyprus, he has been with Invast Global for close to a decade. He has a passion for cultivating strong client relationships and ensuring outstanding service is at the heart of our offering.

It was in June 2022, that Lochlan White was announced as CCO EMEA. His promotion is viewed as a sign of commitment to clients in the Middle East and Europe.
