Exclusive: Jameel Ahmad leaves FXTM
FNG Exclusive… FNG has learned that longtime FXTM executive Jameel Ahmad has resigned as a director of the company’s FCA-licensed subsidiary Forextime UK Limited, and has left the company.
After a brief stint at Blackwell Global in Cyprus, Jameel Ahmad had been with FXTM for the past six years, starting off as an analyst in the company’s Limassol headquarters and rising through the ranks to become the company’s VP Corporate Development as well as FXTM’s Global Head of Currency Strategy and Market Research. His latest appointment had him based in London and, as noted, a director of the UK operation. FXTM UK was established in 2017, received its FCA license in early 2018, and launched its trading platform with clients in April 2018.
By virtue of being FXTM’s senior FX analyst, and speaking several languages, Mr. Ahmad had very much become the public face of FXTM on TV and online for the past several years.
Mr. Ahmad’s departure comes amidst something of a senior management shakeup at FXTM, at least on the content and marketing side of the business. The company’s Media Manager Marinos Papageorgiou left FXTM earlier this year, and is now with rival easyMarkets.
FNG spoke with an FXTM spokesperson who had the following to say:
Yes, we can confirm that Jameel Ahmad has left FXTM. Jameel was a valued member of the FXTM team, and we wish him the best for the future.
