Guru Capital Successfully Takes Ownership of ETX Cyprus

FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

After successfully acquiring UK based ETX Capital in October 2020, Swiss private equity firm Guru Capital has now completed the acquisition of its sister company, Cyprus based Monecor (Europe) Ltd after receiving approval from CySEC

ETX Capital is one of the UK’s leading online CFD and spread betting companies, and as such, their target market has predominantly been the UK until now. With the change in ownership, the group’s vision for ETX Capital is expansion, growth, and new markets. Their sights are set on Europe and cementing the ETX brand throughout the region. It’s an exciting time for the firm, with hiring ramped up, and big plans on the horizon across the entire business.

ETX Capital CEO Philip Adler had this to say on the company’s plans for Europe, “I am delighted that Guru Capital is now the owner of our Cypriot sister company. ETX has a long tradition of offering best in class service to our UK clients and we are looking forward to ETX Cyprus picking up that baton and being at the heart of ETX’s European expansion.”

Ryan Nettles, a Managing Partner at Guru Capital, commented, “The ETX platform offers a very compelling opportunity for European traders due to its user-friendly functionality and multi-asset offering with over 5,000 tradeable instruments.”

ETX Cyprus will be the European HQ, with the company only weeks away from onboarding European clients through the new entity.

FIA urges CFTC to regulate use cases rather than AI itself

“We urge the CFTC to refrain from crafting new regulations that generally regulate AI because this approach presents certain well-known pitfalls. By approaching the issue from the perspective of AI as a technology, rather than the use case for the technology, corresponding regulations would likely necessitate a definition of AI. We anticipate that any attempt to properly define AI would be very challenging and require considerable resources.”
