FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

Leading fintech conglomerate, Finvasia Group, has made senior leadership changes at Fxview, in preparation for a significant European expansion.

  • Finvasia Group recently acquired Fxview for European expansion
  • Senior management changes further strengthen the company’s diversity

Leading fintech conglomerate, Finvasia Group, has made senior leadership changes at Fxview, in preparation for a significant European expansion. Having acquired the leading, Cyprus-based forex brokerage back in June 2021, Finvasia is now taking a more active business management role in a bid to secure future growth, while continuing to deliver for both clients and stakeholders.

The management overhaul has been announced with immediate effect and has been designed to further strengthen the company’s diversity at the most senior levels. In a sector that continues to be male dominated, Finvasia’s actions make a very clear statement that women are not only welcome in fintech but can take the reins.  

As an FX brokerage offering ultra-low commissions, tight spreads, multiple trading platforms, various trading tools and cutting-edge technology as well as exceptional client support and a clutter-free trading environment, Fxview has exceptionally high standards. New leadership is set to further strengthen the brand as they head towards expansion into the global markets. The senior management changes are as follows. 

Janis Anastassiou – Managing Director, Financial Intermediation Finvasia

Further fuelling its management prowess in the financial services industry, Finvasia Group has hired industry veteran, Janis Anastassiou. With 12-years+ in leadership roles, including 8-years as a CEO overseeing financial intermediation in Europe and Asia Pacific. Janis brings extensive experience in FX markets across various jurisdictions, ranging from Australia to London. 

Janis will lead alongside the Finvasia Group’s management as it invests to scale for long-term product innovation, growth and expansion. She will take on the role of Managing Director in Finvasia’s financial intermediation vertical and use her deep experience of working with global companies to lead, accelerate and expand the company’s suite of products.

Prior to joining Finvasia, Janis has been instrumental in driving competitive advantage and continued growth in large multi-jurisdictional organisations including Group CEO at Xtrade.
