“I thrive on keeping up with the latest in marketing as it pertains to the FX industry” said Mrs. Rabia of her appointment, and given she is a seasoned marketing professional who has progressed through key positions in sales, advertising, communications, and marketing, she has played a key role in building marketing teams within technology companies, financial services companies, and more recently in FX, adding that “with my integrated marketing experience and skill sets, I am confidence we can capitalize on the ATFX brand as we innovate and grow.”

She will be responsible for executing market strategies and tactics that drive growth and improve the overall brand development and message in the GCC and the wider Middle Eastern market.

ATFX stated that having Mr. Abouzaid and Mrs. Rabia on board was an important achievement for the company, since it furthered the company’s commitment to providing tailored, localised, multilingual services to its clients across the world, and ensured that its local teams had at least a decade of experience in the regional financial markets.

“Usually, adding options to the typical CFDs and equities offering leads to fragmentation of the platform technology as many brokers will need additional back-end and front-end components, and that could be an important barrier for them. Apart from that, legal hassle and costs associated with proper licensing of market data could be a barrier at first. We are seeing this trend among market data vendors and exchanges to make it easier and more affordable.”
