Spectrum Markets stands as a Pan-European trading venue, and has recently come to tap Marc Touati, a French book author and economist, in order to help it expand its profile. This came as an announcement from the company on Tuesday, where it said that it would expand its profile in an array of financial and economic forums.
A Heavyweight Player Joins The Fold
Touati, under this partnership, will stand as a capital markets expert speaking for Spectrum Markets, according to the company statement. This, the statement said, will greatly contribute to the brand awareness and profile of the company at large.
Touati is easily recognized for his expert commentary, and leads Aux Commandes De l’Economie et de la Finance, or ACDEFI, which is a French economic advisory company. Touati had also served as Chief Economist at the Group Natexis Banques Populaires for twelve years, prior to his founding of ACDEFI within France.
The Mandatory Kind Words
Nicky Maan stands as the CEO of Spectrum, and gave comment about the partnership at large. In the statement, Maan highlighted how extremely valuable this partnership is for Spectrum Markets as a whole. Maan cited the incredible levels of market expertise Touati holds, and highlighted the extensive track record he has within Europe’s finance industry at large. As such, Maan stated that Spectrum Markets would greatly benefit from being able to leverage his extensive knowledge.
Mart Touati gave his own statement about the matter today, as well, and stated that he had been watching Spectrum Markets closely since its launch a year prior. He stated he did this due to him being an advocate of on-venue trading.
Touati stated that he was impressed regarding the array of innovative features integrated within Spectrum Markets. He highlighted the regulatory compliance and lack of compromising customers’ experience when it comes to the broker listing 24/5 on exchange trading. He stated that he was eager to support Spectrum markets, speculating that it’s going on a journey to become the future leader when it comes to retail trading.
