Trade.com, a multi-asset brokerage firm, has appointed Salim Sebbata as the group business development director.
Sharing exclusively with FortuneZ, the broker detailed Sebbata will be based in the London office and his goal will be to meet business partners and to grow the business, which already boasts offices in a range of European and non-European cities.
Commenting on his new role, Sebbata said: “TRADE.com is a fast-moving innovator in the online trading and investing space, with a great management team that is easy to like and to work alongside.”
An important appointment with expanding services
Salim comes with a decorated 30 years track record in the financial services industry.
His accomplishments include the head of the Middle East and board member for E*TRADE. He also worked as a VP in Merrill Lynch and served as Managing Director of various financial firms.
“Trading and investing has come a long way since the 1990s. The disruption and disintermediation of traditional financial services will continue. Clients are optimizing their investments and finances with multiple apps and services. It is down to us to create relevant products and services,” Sebbata added.
