Eurotrader Announces Martin Couper As New Compliance Head

Eurotrader, a leading brokerage firm, has added Martin Couper, a veteran of the FX industry’s compliance sector, to its executive team. Martin, who has worked in the business for over a decade, has been named the company’s new Head of Global Compliance. He has extensive experience in handling company authorizations and coordinating with local and international regulatory authorities.

Martin worked for Exinity for more than 4 years before he joined Eurotrader (formerly FXTM). Prior to that, he worked as a Compliance Officer and then as the Director of Compliance for both Amana Financial Services and FxPro. Between 2006 and 2009, he served at Palmarium Group as the Operations Director.

New compliance head and Eurotrader’s compliance targets

The hiring of Martin Couper follows closely on the heels of Eurotrader’s announcement last week’s appointment of Marcelo Spina as the Group CEO. It’s worth noting that Martin and Marcelo aren’t total strangers to one another; they worked together at Exinity previously.

Given the current state of the world’s financial markets, many authorities have increased their scrutiny and strictness in terms of compliance. Following his appointment, Martin stated that while he is in charge of compliance at Eurotrader, the company will strive to expand the number of licenses it now possesses and build upon the robust foundations that are already in place. He also stated that the company would ensure its customers had access to a secure, transparent, and reliable trading environment despite the ever-shifting nature of the regulatory environment.

Eurotrader has released a statement saying that Martin’s hiring is in line with the company’s objectives to build a successful trading environment that is also well-regulated, trusted, and transparent. Eurotrader is licensed by South Africa’s Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) and Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC). It offers retail brokerage for foreign exchange, equities, crypto, indices, and commodities.
