Dubai – MENA Herald: Award-winning international forex broker FXTM has announced the appointment of Hussein Al Sayed as Chief Market Strategist for the Gulf and Middle East region. An experienced financial analyst and host of CNBC Arabia’s Bursat Al Alam Show, Hussein brings his considerable expertise to FXTM’s dynamic and rapidly-growing market research team, and will become the face and voice of the brand within the GCC region.
Al Sayed will provide analysis in both Arabic and English and hold regular seminars on the markets, thereby fulfilling FXTM’s intentions to expand its global reach by establishing the brand as an authority in forex within the MENA and GCC regions. Hussein will be providing FXTM’s clients and traders with valuable insights into the latest market news and macroeconomic trends, continuing FXTM’s mission to educate traders and the business community about forex trading through video presentations, as well as representing the company at public speaking opportunities. The financial analyst will also continue in his role as anchor of the popular business show Bursat Al Alam for CNBC Arabia.
“As one of the leaders in the forex industry, we consistently strive to build our team of internationally-recognised financial and market research experts in order to continue offering our clients top quality analysis. We are delighted to welcome Hussein to the company, whose in-depth understanding of the GCC region and high professional standards will make a perfect fit for the FXTM brand. As a company we are committed to providing excellent service, transparency and reliability and Hussein has exemplified these traits throughout his career. I am confident that he will make an excellent FXTM ambassador as we look to expand our footprint – and fulfil our potential – within the UAE and Gulf countries,” said Jameel Ahmad, Vice President of Corporate Development and Chief Market Analyst at FXTM.
During the course of Hussein’s work at CNBC Arabia, he has interviewed many influential decision makers in the Arab and international business world, including ministers and CEOs of major multi-national companies. Prior to joining CNBC Arabia, Hussein spent many years working in the investment field as a dealer, trader and analyst in equities, credit and foreign exchange markets. His training and experience includes technical and fundamental analysis, client advisory and research publications.
Commenting on his appointment, Al Sayed said: “In a short period of time, FXTM has become one of the market leaders within the industry; with a drive for excellence, transparency and credibility at the core of the company’s ethos. Joining FXTM is a natural choice for me because of the sheer quality of the award-winning market research team and the company’s commitment to providing the most expert analysis to the global investment community. Timely insights into what economic events really mean to traders are what the forex markets need on a daily basis, and I look forward to my new role immensely.”
