Karthik Subramanian has been a professional trader and fund manager over the last 18 years. He is basically a software developer who made the transition to financial domain around 18 years back as the attractiveness of the financial markets proved too much for him. He lives in Chennai in India along with his wife and son. He began his career as a software developer in 1999 and then gradually moved into the financial industry as he began trading stocks in his pastime. He then moved into the financial markets full time and then shifted his focus to the FX markets due to the liquid nature of these markets. Since then, he has been trading FX diligently and his favourite pair are the EURUSD and EURJPY. Over the last couple of years, he has found blockchain to be of high interest and considering his background in software and finance, he has since assembled a team of highly talented developers who have since worked on a variety of projects like crypto exchanges and blockchain architecturing. Now, he balances his time between trading and commenting on both the FX and crypto markets. He has worked with many publications including FX Street and Finance Magnates, which has helped him gain experience and also recognition across the industry. He loves to write and this passion has helped him to reach out across the FX and crypto industry. Right now, he works on his pet projects in the FX and crypto industry and spends his time writing and managing his blockchain team and helping it to reach higher.

 Former ETX Capital CEO Arman Tahmassebi Joins FinTech Player LeadInvest

Former ETX Capital’s CEO Arman Tahmassebi has now joined a Fintech player, LeadInvest as its Chief Operating Officer. It marks the transition for Mr Tahnassebi, who has been working in the retail forex broker industry for the last two decades.

He started with IG Group, where he spent almost 15 years in various roles and then moved to London Capital Group as its COO. From there he moved to ETX Capital, where he was initially appointed as COO and CEO of the company.

LeadInvest’s move to appoint Arman Tahmassebi as its COO comes at a time when the whole fintech sector is going through toughened regulatory pressure. LeadInvest is a peer-to-peer lending platform and has raised near to £30 million in a pre-IPO funding round. Tahmassebi is joining the firm as the company is in the run-up to a prospective IPO, which it announced later last year. 

But, CEO and Cofounder of LeadInvest, Christian Faes gave hints that the company’s IPO plans have been delayed for almost one to two years, as it wants to look for the effects of Brexit before taking next step.
