FNG Exclusive… FNG has learned that FCA licensed FX, CFDs, and spreadbetting broker Trade Nation has beefed up its Partnership program personnel, hiring Will Hardy and Ben Nguyen.
Will Hardy, based in London, will be running Trade Nations’ Partnership program in the EMEA region. A seasoned FX/CFDs industry veteran with more than 20 years in the sector, Will joins Trade Nation after serving for the past two years as Global Head of Commercial Operations and also as Head of UK Sales and Support at Zenfinex. His prior work experience includes TigerWit, Tera Europe, City Credit Capital, LMAX, and IG, where he spent more than 10 years as Head of Retail Sales.
Ben Nguyen, who is based out of Sydney, will be Regional Head of Partnerships for Trade Nation for APAC. Prior to joining Trade Nation he worked at Monex Securities Australia, and FXCM, where he was Head of Retail Sales in Australia and later Vice President of Sales out of London for FXCM.
FNG spoke with Will Hardy, who noted:
“I am delighted to be joining Trade Nation to expand our Partners business across the EMEA region. Our unique core offering is already very strong and we have exciting plans to enhance our suite of partnership products and solutions throughout 2023.”
Ben Nguyen added:

Trade Nation have always been focused on providing a first class service to clients and partners and we will continue this commitment offering a fair and transparent service.”
Trade Nation Financial UK Ltd used to be known as Finsa Europe Ltd, with the company’s renaming happening in early 2022. The group’s main retail brokerage brand was also changed in a major rebrand, from Core Spreads to Trade Nation and website tradenation.com, although its old corespreads.com site is still functioning. Trade Nation and its various brands are controlled by UK entrepreneur Jasper White, who bought control of the company (then known as The Trader Management Company Limited) in 2014. Jasper White was previously CEO of sports betting concern Gambit Research. The company has been run day-to-day by CEO Stuart Lane since 2016.
