Belize-based FX and CFDs brokerage Scope Markets has promoted Daniel Mackenzie Clark to take on an expanded role as the company’s head of partnerships.

Daniel has stepped into his new role in June, nearly three years after he joined the firm in a senior role at its institutional sales desk, according to information made public on his LinkedIn profile.

In his new role, Clark will be responsible for Scope Markets’ partnerships strategy, building and maintaining relationships with key partners within the wider brokerage business that are essential to the company’s growth plans. He will help solidify Scope Markets operations in many regions as well, bringing several years of expertise in the FX space to the role.

Clark started his own career in 2014 when he assumed his first role in the FX arena as a sales manager at GKFX Financial Services limited, known by its GKFX brand. There he spent the bulk of his career with the multi-regulated FX and CFDs brokerage firm.

During this 4-year stint, he worked his way up through several roles with the firm, culminating with a senior position within its institutional sales team.

Scope Markets, which was acquired by Rostro Financials Group, is among a handful of non-dealing online foreign exchange brokers that secured regulator licence in Kenya. It has recently appointed Alex Karanja Njoroge, a seasoned financial services industry professional, as CEO and executive director for is business in in East Africa. The company also appointed Kenneth Waiganjo as an Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer.

Scope Markets is led by CEO Jacob Plattner, who has also been a major shareholder since he resigned his position as managing director at GKFX. Scope Markets, which is domiciled in Belize and regulated by the International Financial Services Commission (IFSC), is controlled by UAE-based entrepreneur Serkan Ismailoglu. The Middle East-focused broker also operates regulated entities in Africa, Cyprus and Mauritius.

Scope Markets has recently announced a multi-year extension to its sleeve partnership with iconic east London football club, West Ham United. The extended accord helps expand Scope Markets’ product scope in the UK and globally as the football club’s official online trading partner.
