Divisa Capital has strengthened its operations with its latest senior hire, bringing in Sammy Christou as Head of Trading. The addition of Mr. Christou will help support the group’s upcoming proprietary trading platform, which builds on an already expansive year for the FX and CFD liquidity provider.
The hire reflects Divisa Capital growing operations – 2017 has already seen it make a landmark $100 million investment to enhance its liquidity offering and deliver to its clients new products and services. Additionally, Divisa also recently expanded into the retail segment, under the brand Equiti Global Markets.
Mr. Christou’s appointment will be instrumental in Divisa Capital’s upcoming launch of its proprietary trading platform. CEO Mushegh Tovmasyan commented: “With over ten years of market experience building risk and pricing systems at some of the industry’s biggest Forex and CFD providers, Sammy’s creative and dynamic approach will prove invaluable for Divisa Capital’s next phase of commercial development and global expansion.”
Indeed, Mr. Christou is no stranger to the industry, having worked in a number of senior roles for the past nine years. He joins Divisa Capital from London Capital Group (LCG), working as a senior dealer for the past two years. Additional roles also include stints at Gain Capital and GFT Markets, dating back to 2008.
“Divisa Capital is very pleased to attract the calibre of talent and expertise that Sammy will bring to the business. His market experience and trading knowledge will be a real asset to the company,” reiterated Mr. Tovmasyan.
“I am very excited to contribute to the growth of one of the most cutting-edge fintech companies in the brokerage space. I firmly believe Divisa’s customer focus and culture of innovation will see us capture increased market share and lead the way in advancing trading technologies,” added Mr. Christou.
