GMO-Z.com Trade UK Limited, FCA-regulated and an affiliated company of retail forex provider GMO CLICK Securities Inc., just announced that it has added industry expert Ramy Soliman to its team as Chief Strategy Officer (CSO).
Prior to GMO-Z.com Trade UK Limited, Ramy Soliman was CEO and founder of Stater Global Markets, and has extensive experience in the financial services sector, holding senior positions at IG, Citibank and Integral Development Corp.

Commenting on the appointment, Masahiro Funada, CEO of GMO-Z.com Trade UK Limited, commented:
We are delighted to welcome Ramy to the team. To date our UK entity has been primarily focused on the retail side, however you will start to see some changes from us over the coming months as we look to grow our business within the institutional space. I believe that Ramy’s knowledge and track record within the institutional space, combined with the backing of GMO Financial Holdings, will be invaluable as we look to strengthen the group’s global presence.
Ramy commented on the news:
I am delighted to join Masahiro and the team at GMO-Z.com. I believe that all the core elements exist here to create a disruptive institutional offering of the highest standard, namely strong financial backing from a significantly capitalised listed parent, multiple Tier 1 Prime Broker relationships and strong liquidity partnerships, and I look forward to executing the strategy.
