FNG Exclusive… Looks like there are more management changes afoot at UK financial spreadbetting and CFDs trading firm Capital Index. (And, probably more to come).

After we reported exclusively at the beginning of November that Capital Index had promoted Trevor Barwell to CEO, replacing Matthew Wright (who has since moved on to become CEO of Zenfinex), FNG has learned that two of Capital Index’s most senior officers have resigned from the firm – Chief Operating Officer Heiko Mueller, and Chief Compliance Officer Marcus Ford. Both have also resigned from the board of the group’s FCA regulated entity, Capital Index (UK) Limited.

Heiko Mueller (pictured above) joined Capital Index in 2018 as Commercial Director, and was promoted to COO earlier this year. Prior to joining Capital Index he worked at Destek Markets, GKFX, Ebury, and Alpari UK, dating back to 2009, in a variety of senior commercial, sales, and managerial roles.

Marcus Ford has been Chief Compliance Officer of Capital Index for the past three years. He has worked in compliance and anti-money laundering focused positions in the FX/CFDs industry for the past decade, including at Global Prime Partners, XTB, Plus500, and OANDA.

Capital Index (UK) Limited is an FCA regulated brokerage specializing in CFDs, Financial Spread Betting and Spread Trading. The company is controlled by forex trading coach Greg Secker, who bought into the company in 2016.
