Ulas Akincilar leaves Infinox Capital to join Century Financial
Century Financial, a UAE-headquartered financial services provider, has installed Ulas Akincilar as its chief product officer.
Akincilar stepped into his new role in January, ending a five year tenure with UK-headquartered Forex brokerage Infinox Capital. There he had served as Head Of Trading and Risk since 2018. Originally called GO Markets UK, the firm rebranded to INFINOX in 2014. As an FCA-regulated brokerage, Infinox offers its trading services to clients on a global scale.
In his new capacity, Akincilar will help solidify Century Financial’s operations, bringing more than 13 years of expertise in the FX space to the role. He will be in charge of researching a plethora of new products while expanding the existing product suite. Moreover, he will use his skill set to focus on business opportunities by identifying demand from institutional investors.
Prior to INFINOX, Akincilar served for a short stint with FCA-regulated brokerage firm House of Borse Limited (HoB) as Head of Trading and Risk Management. He joined the middle east-focused broker after nearly a decade in the FX and trading technology space, having worked at a number of leading venues in the industry.
Ulas joined House of Borse from Gold-i, a trading systems integration specialist for the financial services industry. Per his Linkedin profile, he served there as a technical support engineer, a position he held for nearly 15 months.
Akincilar also worked as FX Transactions Director at A1 Capital Menkul Degerler from July 2015 until December 2017, and then joined E-FX Capital Markets as Treasury & Risk Manager where he stayed for nearly two years.
Akincilar earned his bachelor’s degree in geomatics engineering from Istanbul Technical University in Turkey.
