Rick Steves

“I have been closely following Capital.com’s development and growth since the company was founded, and have always believed in its vision to lower the barriers to investing using cutting-edge technology, good pricing and education.”

Joe Rundle, who was most recently the Chief Executive Officer of Markets.com, has joined Capital.com as Chief of Staff of the high-growth global trading and investing platform.

The industry veteran with 20 years of experience driving strategy and global growth operations for leading brokerage firms, will oversee Capital.com’s expansion into new markets and support the company’s diversification strategy.

Expertise in building multi-asset platforms will come in handy

In the newly created role, Joe Rundle will be based in Cyprus, the European capital of leveraged trading. From there, he will help Capital.com in its mission to expand to new markets such as the United States, as well as work on existing and new talent, and bolstering product development and innovation.

Prior to joining Capital.com, he was Chief Executive Officer at Markets.com, a competing brokerage firm and a subsidiary of Finalto.

His 20-year career within the industry includes jobs at Bank of America and senior leadership positions at ThinkMarkets and ETX Capital. At the latter, he was part of the executive team responsible for repositioning the company as a multi-asset broker.

This experience in building multi-asset platforms will prove useful to Capital.com as that is where the industry is headed and Capital.com is aiming high.

Jonathan Squires, Group Chief Executive Officer at Capital.com, said: “Capital.com has not only been achieving but also sustaining triple-digit year-on-year growth for the last few years. Stellar growth has enabled us to expand our global footprint rapidly. With Joe’s knowledge and experience building compelling multi-asset platforms, we can confidently deliver best-in-class stock trading capabilities and drive strategic partnerships.

“We will continue to support our clients all over the world by expanding into new markets and diversifying our products. We are committed to ensuring sound risk management and providing the right learning tools to help people become confident investors.

Joe Rundle, Chief of Staff, Capital.com, said: “I have been closely following Capital.com’s development and growth since the company was founded, and have always believed in its vision to lower the barriers to investing using cutting-edge technology, good pricing and education. This new role combines so many things that I’m passionate about – particularly people, innovation, growth-driven strategy and the financial markets.”

Capital.com offers derivatives trading on more than 6,000 of the world’s most popular indices, commodities, cryptocurrencies (not available to UK retail clients), shares and currency pairs.
