LeapRate has learned that Stavros Yiannakou has joined CySEC regulated retail FX broker ArgusFX as its new COO.
Mr. Yiannakou spent the past five years as Head of Business Development at MAP S.Platis, the leading regulatory consultant firm in Cyprus. He has previously been CEO of TadawulFX (which later became Liquid Markets) after beginning his career as a trader at Marfin Laiki Bank.
ArgusFX, founded in 2000 and still run by its co-founder Andri Tringidou to whom Mr. Yiannakou reports, is one of the longest-tenured Retail Forex brokers in Cyprus, but has remained a farily small, niche player. ArgusFX is a registered trading name of Argus Stockbrokers Ltd which is authorized and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC).
In a brief statement to LeapRate, Mr. Yiannakou said that he is “looking forward to a new challenge”.
