Exclusive: Invast names IC Markets alum Riana Chaili as CEO Europe
FNG Exclusive… FNG has learned that Australia based, institutional-focused FX broker Invast Global has named Riana Chaili as CEO EMEA. Based in Invast’s (relatively) new Cyprus office, she will be responsible for Invast’s relationships with local Retail FX and CFD brokers, and for building up a dealing desk to serve EU clients.
Riana Chaili joined Invast last year with the title Managing Director. Prior to joining Invast she spent three years at IC Markets, acting as Chief Dealer for Australia-based IC Markets in its Cyprus based, CySEC licensed operation. She had also worked as Head of Brokerage for Binary Options broker B.O. TradeFinancials (iqtrade24, and other brands).
FNG had also exclusively reported in March that Invast hired longtime FxPro executive Gavriil Doratis, as Associate Director in Cyprus.
Invast is apparently in the process of applying for a CySEC CIF license.
James Alexander, Invast’s Chief Commercial Officer, said:
“We are very excited by the opportunities we see in the market and the skills, experience and connections Riana brings to the role. We are also particularly delighted to announce our first female CEO in what is a traditionally male dominated field of Prime Brokerage.”
Invast Australia CEO Gavin White added:
“This is a natural next step for Riana. She has many years of senior experience in FX dealing operations and risk management. I’m confident Riana will continue to effectively lead our Cyprus team and grow our presence in Europe and beyond.”
