Philippe Ghanem has re-joined SquaredFinacial to oversee ambitious plans to expand both its services and geographical footprint, as it offers a new one-stop solution for traders and investors looking for secure, regulated and technology led access to global markets.
Mr Ghanem was one of the original founders of SquaredFinancial Group, and has returned to take-up the position of Executive Chairman, with the objective of making SquaredFinancial a global firm and a significant market contributor. Known for his vision and insight he has been responsible for developing a number of very successful companies. One of his first moves has been to bring in Husam Al Kurdi as Chief Executive Officer, who will focus on expanding the brokerage and market access side of the business.
Mr Ghanem commented: “This is the optimum time to relaunch SquaredFinancial, as the world faces an unprecedented crisis and needs innovation and change to move forward. We are developing a fintech based financial services company which combines the best technology with the best people to deliver for a new generation of clients. Investors today want to be able to build a long-term relationship with an accessible, proactive and trusted partner. They want a secure, easy to use and flexible solution from a firm they can trust to manage their access to global markets. This is why we are launching SquaredFinancial at a time when everyone knows that change has to happen.”
Under the new leadership, SquaredFinancial is targeting exponential growth as it increases its presence in main markets and opens new offices in jurisdictions which offer strong and respected regulation. Growth will be achieved organically as well as from the acquisition of financial institutions, banks or fintech companies. Results will be delivered by a team which understands the investment drivers of a generation who are tech literate, market savvy and acutely aware that from global warming to pandemics the world is changing.
The target markets include Europe, Asia, Latam and Africa where a range of brokerage, wealth management and asset management will be offered. At all levels, technology will be fully integrated to provide trading solutions with the highest levels of security, as well as managing KYC and AML commitments, so that clients are given the support they need whether they are looking to construct or preserve wealth.
“Over many years we have seen the development of financial services, mainly driven by new regulation or technology, however the needs and views of the clients were often overlooked. It is now very clear that Generation X to Generation Z investors and traders are looking for new options, which can only be delivered by a fintech led financial services company.” added Mr Ghanem.
