CySEC-regulated forex broker easyMarkets has parted ways with Ohad Golan, who served as its chief marketing officer for nearly four years.

Ohad Golan

At easyMarkets, Golan was focused on applying industry practices to achieve better customer experience, regulatory compliance, data security, and lower costs.

He announced the news in a Linkedin post but without revealing details about his next destination.

Based out of the group’s office in Cyprus, Golan was tasked with steering easyMarkets global marketing functions, which includes many responsibilities ranging from the execution of the company’s brand strategy to its product marketing efforts, corporate communications, and digital marketing agenda.

Golan has more than a decade of experience working with different businesses to optimize their communications, compliance and business practices. He is a 14-year-veteran of the FX and gambling industries. Prior to easyMarkets, he served as director of affiliate marketing at iCFD Ltd., the CySEC-regulated arm of iFOREX’s European operations, which rebranded to Vestle.com.

Prior to iFOREX, Golan worked at the Israel office of bwin, an online betting brand owned by GVC Holdings.

Founded in 2003 and presently operating in 160 countries, easyMarkets is a multi-asset financial trading brand that grants its customers many tools not available with other providers. One such tool is the feature of undoing a losing trade within hours and freezing the market price for a few seconds to make better trading decisions. The broker was the first to introduce innovative features like guaranteed stop-loss, negative balance protection, and Freeze Rate to offer effective risk management opportunities.

In 2019, the company exited the Polish ‎market and withdrew registration of its ‎Polish branch Easy Forex Trading Sp. Zoo., located at Warsaw Financial Center.‎

easyMarkets indicated that it operates a broadly diversified business, spanning across different regulatory jurisdictions. As a result of this diversification across business lines and geographies, the company does not expect the anticipated changes to regulation to have a material adverse effect on its overall offering.

Earlier this year, easyMarkets joined a growing group of brokers in switching over to MetaTrader 5 (MT5), becoming the latest retail platform to incorporate the platform into its live trading infrastructure.

With its latest MT5 trading platform launch, the CySEC and ASIC regulated broker, which rebranded in January 2016 from EasyForex, strives to further uplift its product portfolio and offer better financial trading chances.
