With over 18 years of experience in the Turkish financial markets, Ayhan brings significant expertise to Stater.

Ayhan Gurcuoglu has been appointed by Stater Global Markets as Regional Sales Manager (Turkey). He joins from Sucden Financial, where he was also Regional Manager for Turkey.

With over 18 years’ experience in the Turkish financial markets, Ayhan brings significant expertise to Stater. In addition to three years at Sucden Financial, he was at Sanko Securities for five years, where he progressed from Financial Dealer to Foreign Markets Assistant Manager and was instrumental in building up the organisation’s FX and CFD departments. His career history also includes working at Tera Brokers and at Raymond James, which at the time was one of the leading brokerage houses in Turkey.

Ayhan’s appointment is the third newly created sales role announced by Stater over the last month, reinforcing the FCA regulated Prime of Prime’s ambition as it continues to expand globally. Max Moriarty, formerly at FIXI plc, was announced as the first member of Stater’s sales team, followed by Michael Davies who has joined as Global Head of Sales, also from Sucden Financial.

Ramy Soliman, CEO, Stater Global Markets says, “Turkey was a key market for me when I was at Citi and is an important region for Stater. We are therefore delighted to welcome Ayhan to our team. Ayhan is highly respected by banks and brokers in the region and has an in-depth understanding of their requirements and business culture. I believe we will benefit significantly from his experience and contacts.”

Ayhan Gurcuoglu adds, “I was very excited when Ramy approached me about this role. The technical infrastructure which is in place at Stater and the calibre of the team makes it an exciting company to work for, with a very promising future. From my network, I believe there is a lot of business potential for Stater in Turkey, and I feel confident that Stater’s bespoke solutions and transparency meet the exact needs of brokers and banks in the region.”

Stater Global Markets is an FCA regulated Prime of Prime brokerage which offers institutional clients direct access to Tier 1 bank and non-bank liquidity, clearing and institutional grade technology. The London-based firm is a wholly owned subsidiary of SBL Holdings Limited.
