Ron Finberg leaves Finance Magnates for Cappitech

Today marks the end of an era when it comes to the reporting of industry events across all sectors of the global FX and fintech sectors, as one of the most experienced, well connected and professional news reporters in the global FX industry has moved on.

Ron Finberg, one of the original FX industry journalists at Finance Magnates (formerly Forex Magnates) has left the company in order to pursue an executive Business Development position at boutique fintech company Cappitech, which specializes in customized trading and EMIR reporting solutions.

Mr. Finberg joined Forex Magnates (now Finance Magnates) in August 2012, and has been a mainstay within the company’s research efforts worldwide, and has been responsible for the provision of a wide range of very astutely conducted insights into all aspects of the FX industry from fintech, one of Mr. Finberg’s great passions, to liquidity provision, buy and sell side issues, retail brokerages, technology vendors, and very well researched anecdotes and observations regarding current affairs within the industry.

The love of fintech: Ron Finberg

Urbane, sophisticated and very well connected, Mr. Finberg’s reports have made for very important reading over the last four years, as well as his incisive moderation of discussion panels at international FX industry conferences, where he brought important subjects to the forefront of industry leaders from across the globe.

FinanceFeeds CEO Andrew Saks-McLeod has worked with Mr. Finberg at length in the past and whilst this is the end of a truly remarkable era in which Mr. Finberg has stood out as an authority among industry professionals with his depth of knowledge and professional personality, most certainly Mr. Finberg deserves great success in his new position.

Speaking to FinanceFeeds CEO Andrew Saks-McLeod today, Mr. Finberg said “Excited to be starting later this week at Cappitech in a business development role.  I got the chance to work at an online brokerage startup at what became Markets.com and then entered new media as a journalist for Finance Magnates.”

“Cappitech will be the first true fintech and technology firm that I am part of. RegTech (regulation + technology) might not seem like the most exciting area of fintech, but it’s one of the most needed and Cappitech has a great product and team to efficiently handle EMIR, Dodd-Frank and (in the future) MiFID II reporting requirements for forex/CFD and binary options brokers, asset managers and hedge funds” Ron Finberg.

Mr. Finberg is highly respected in the FX industry, and FinanceFeeds wishes him great success in his new position.
