Finalto appoints Klelia Orphanidou as B2B Head of Regulatory Compliance
Leading institutional trading services firm Finalto has announced that it is pleased to welcome Klelia Orphanidou as the company’s new B2B Head of Regulatory Compliance. Klelia moves to manage the FCA regulated areas of the business, having previously held the positions of MLRO and Compliance Officer for the Group’s CySEC regulated entities.
Orphanidou joins the team at a great time, with lots of change on the horizon for financial firms, including the introduction of the UK Consumer Duty Act.
“2023 will be an intense year for all firms in our line of business,” she said. “Luckily, I have a fantastic growing team and we have established our compliance culture across the organisation. Finalto has the infrastructure, technology, people and capacity to evolve as regulation evolves and come up with new products to best suit its clients while adhering to regulatory requirements.”
Klelia Orphanidou has worked in the Finalto Group for nearly nine years, and recently relocated to London to take on her new position. She began her career in law, before deciding to switch litigation for the Financial Services industry.
Matthew Maloney, Group CEO of Finalto, said:
“We are delighted to welcome Klelia Orphanidou to her new role as B2B Head of Regulatory Compliance. She has long been a valuable member of our team and we’re excited to see what she brings to this position.”
Orphanidou has already made the move to London to join the team, and is excited for the changes and challenges ahead for 2023.
“Finalto is one of the leading financial services firms in our sector and being part of it is a great achievement. We have several projects in the pipeline, focusing on automation and efficiency of our monitoring,” she adds.
