One Financial Markets expands UAE operations with senior appointments and new offices

One Financial Markets’ global growth continues, with the appointment of five former senior management team members from Alpari DMCC, new premises in Dubai, a new office in Abu Dhabi and further expansion in London.

The ex-Alpari DMCC employees will form One Financial Markets’ new account management team in Dubai, bringing over 40 years’ experience in the financial sector as well as a strong marketing pedigree.

Hassan Al Aggad, former Head of Sales at Alpari Middle East, has been appointed as UAE Regional Manager at One Financial Markets. He is widely known and highly respected in both the industry and the region and will head up One Financial Markets’ Dubai-based institutional team, which has moved offices to new premises in Al Reef Tower to accommodate the team expansion. New team members are Mohammad Salah (BDM), Anas Qarish (Senior BDM), Chokri Houimli (BDM) and Adel Aljibrin (BDM).

Hassan Al Aggad comments, “My team and I are honoured to be working for such a solid and ambitious company as One Financial Markets.  We met with many brokers after the sad demise of Alpari but felt that One Financial’s products and services were ideal for the market and we knew straight away this was our new home.”

Andrew Henderson, UK Director, One Financial Markets adds, “Despite a tough year for our industry and a backdrop of industry retrenchment and closures, One Financial Markets is experiencing ongoing success and is continuing to grow.  We have always focused on providing an excellent customer experience off the back of a secure business platform and believe Hassan and his team are ideally suited to help us with our ambitious expansion plans, ensuring the ethos of our customer-centric approach remains as we grow. Their achievements at Alpari were widely acknowledged as outstanding and we are delighted they are looking to bring that success to One Financial Markets.”

Following on from its recent office opening in Jeddah, One Financial Markets has now opened a new office in Abu Dhabi, based at Etihad Towers.  The new towers – regarded as amongst the Emirates’ most prestigious real estate – consist of offices, high-end shops and a hotel and are located opposite the celebrated Emirates Palace Hotel.
