We are delighted to welcome Hussein to the company, whose in-depth understanding of the GCC region and high professional standards will make a perfect fit for the FXTM brand. As a company we are committed to providing excellent service, transparency and reliability and Hussein has exemplified these traits throughout his career. I am confident that he will make an excellent FXTM ambassador as we look to expand our footprint – and fulfill our potential – within the UAE and Gulf countries.”

“In a short period of time, FXTM has become one of the market leaders within the industry; with a drive for excellence, transparency and credibility at the core of the company’s ethos. Joining FXTM is a natural choice for me because of the sheer quality of the award-winning market research team and the company’s commitment to providing the most expert analysis to the global investment community. Timely insights into what economic events really mean to traders are what the forex markets need on a daily basis, and I look forward to my new role immensely.”
