‎ Couper ‎will join Eurotrader’s compliance team based out of London where he will be tasked with ‎ensuring ‎adherence to the relevant rules, regulations and guidelines by which the ‎firm is bound. Given the increasingly global nature of the business and a ‎‎regulatory landscape that is constantly evolving, this is a greater challenge ‎‎now than ever before.‎

Couper lands at Eurotrader coming from Exinity, which was founded in 2020 by Andrey Dashin, owner of brokerage companies Alpari and FXTM. There he spent nearly five years, which took his career between 2016 and 2022.

Prior to Exinity, Martin was compliance officer, MLRO and CASS, and most recently oversight director at the UK business of Middle-East heavy weight brokerage firm Amana Capital. That was preceded by four years at FxPro UK Ltd as head of operations and UK compliance officer.

Announcing the appointment, Eurotrader’s recently-appointed CEO Marcelo Spina said: “We are pleased that Martin Couper has joined the Eurotrader family. His appointment aligns with our ongoing efforts to create a thriving but at the same time well-regulated, trusted, and transparent place to trade. We look forward to witnessing the development, growth, and success our Global Compliance Department will achieve under his leadership. ”

Martin Couper added: “Since joining Eurotrader, I have noticed that everyone is focused on providing the best possible service to our clients. We really are client-centric in all departments. Within an ever-changing regulatory landscape, we will be looking to increase our current licenses and build on the solid foundations already in place. We will always keep the same outlook across all our regulated entries. That is to provide a safe, transparent and reliable trading environment for all our clients.”

Eurotrader Group has made a series of changes to its management structure this month, culminating in the appointment of industry veteran Marcelo Spina as its Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Spina brings over two decades of experience in the financial service industry, having worked with an array of investment firms across his lengthy career that dates back to 1995.

Founded in 2018, Eurotrader is a forex brokerage firm owned by Eurotrade Investments RGB Ltd., which is headquartered in Limassol, Cyprus, and licensed to provide online trading products and services.

Part of a rebranding process, the company acquired new domains:, and for the CySEC-regulated entity. Furthermore, the broker has recently lured many industry veterans to expand its senior leadership team.
