Skilling snatches Daniela Egli from Fxview

Rick Steves

“Throughout my career I’ve witnessed significant changes within global financial markets, which have increased the demand for agile, credible brokers such as Skilling amongst the trading population.”

Skilling has announced the appointment of Daniela Egli as Group Chief Operating Officer in charge of overseeing the multi asset fintech’s operations across new and existing markets.

Daniela Egli joins the Scandinavian broker from FCA and CySEC-regulated Fxview, where she was Managing Director for two years and a half and managed the change in ownership to Finvasia Group.

She has spent more than 15 years within the financial services sector before joining Skilling, and has played a number of roles within business development, compliance, and executive management, and overseeing significant mergers and acquisitions across Asia and Europe.

Prior to Fxview, she was Executive Director at Blackwell Global for six years and Head of RTO at MeritKapital for four years. She is a CySEC-certified AML expert and a CISI-certified specialist in risk.

Demand for agile, credible brokers

The new Skilling CEO will be based out of the Cyprus office, reporting to chief executive Michael Kamerman. The appointment follows a period of strong growth on several metrics, including record account growth. Skilling also raised EUR 10 million, launched a proprietary partnership portal and the Skilling Copy platform. The brokerage group offers 900 CFD instruments covering all asset classes, including more than 55 cryptocurrencies.

Michael Kamerman, Group CEO of Skilling, commented: “Daniela’s appointment as Group COO exemplifies Skilling’s ambition to solidify our position as a highly credible market leading broker, able to swiftly adapt our operations to meet the evolving needs of our customers. The current financial landscape requires efficient navigation to capitalise on opportunities, and Daniela’s experience will be instrumental in ensuring we provide the highest level of service to traders as we push ahead with our targeted global expansion.”

Daniela Egli, Group COO of Skilling, said: “I’m incredibly excited to join Skilling at a particularly important point within its growth journey through expanding into new markets. Throughout my career I’ve witnessed significant changes within global financial markets, which have increased the demand for agile, credible brokers such as Skilling amongst the trading population. I’m looking forward to leveraging my experience to scale up Skilling’s operations in the most beneficial manner for all customers.”
