ATFX has announced the appointment of Linton White as the new Regional Head for ATFX Africa. In his role, he will oversee all aspects of ATFX’s operations in Africa.
His strategic and results-driven approach, coupled with a successful track record in leading high-performing teams and fostering growth in competitive markets, makes him a valuable addition to the company.
Linton White knows South Africa’s online trading industry inside out
With over 15 years of experience in the financial industry, White’s expertise strengthens ATFX’s position in the South African market. He joins ATFX from Scope Markets, where he was General Manager in South Africa last year. Prior to that, he was Head of Business Development at Atossa Capital and Veracity Markets, two online trading platforms owned and managed by the same shareholders.
Linton White joined the online trading industry in 2014 when he became Director of IB broker Orenda Capital and then of white label platform provider Green Box Markets. In 2019, he joined JP Markets as Regional Manager and then QuickTrade.
White’s extensive experience in developing and implementing successful business development strategies within the derivatives brokerage industry is expected to drive ATFX’s continued growth in the region. His proficiency in identifying and capitalizing on market opportunities, building lasting relationships with key stakeholders, and driving revenue growth has consistently yielded positive results throughout his career.
ATFX acquired South African licensed broker last year
This appointment comes during a period of significant growth for ATFX Group, marked by the successful acquisition of Rakuten Securities Australia and Khwezi Financial Services in South Africa in 2023.
Additionally, strategic appointments such as Simon Naish as the Head of ATFX Australia and Hormoz Faryar as the Managing Director of Institutional Sales (MENA-Dubai) reflect ATFX’s dedication to attracting top talent and expanding its global reach.
ATFX is a globally leading fintech broker, holding licenses in multiple countries, including the UK’s FCA, Cyprus’s CySEC, UAE’s SCA, Australia’s ASIC, and South Africa’s FSCA.
