“The impact of the pandemic on the market is ongoing” – Mr. Philippe Ghanem, Chairman of

It is no secret that the online trading industry has taken quite a blow in 2021 so far. The abundance of new players in the field, along with the cryptocurrency market’s extreme unpredictability, have changed the rules of the game, leaving many younger, less experienced trading brands out of the game.

With that in mind, we took the opportunity to sit down and chat with Mr. Philippe Ghanem, chairman of one of the most veteran and trusted online trading brokers today, SquaredFinancial. Do not miss his two cents on where the industry is heading.

Q1: Tell us about yourself.

A: I have been an entrepreneur my entire life. I started companies that offer platforms allowing clients to virtually trade all markets, online and offline. I focused on increasing the accessibility of customers to trading by creating asset management tools, until reaching the one-stop shop we are now offering at SquaredFinancial.

In 2000, I started my first company, EFXFX, in Geneva. Then I established Amwal Brokerage in 2005 in Abu Dhabi and then SquaredFinancial in Dublin. In 2010 I was appointed Managing Director at ADSS, and in 2015, I was appointed CEO and Vice Chairman.

I’ve always been involved in the online business, with the aim to create a bridge between markets and the online community. Over the years, my businesses compiled more than a million clients, and I have been lucky to be surrounded and assisted by some of the best talents in the industry. New technologies captivate me, from blockchain to AI. I believe that they will lead to the introduction of many new products in the markets, creating more opportunities for our clients.

Q2: SquaredFinancial. That’s an interesting name. Is there a story behind it?

A: Well, a square has defined edges, four right angles – the 90 degrees – and four equal sides. Just like that, people from the four corners of the earth have access to our trading services. They have equal chances of investment, and they get to benefit from well-defined trading, the trading that is right for them, good trading, no matter where on the globe they may be. A square reflects balance, and that’s what we thrive at offering.

Q3: I see that you are a multi-regulated broker, yet you still manage to offer access to so many global assets, on a very diverse scale. How do you do it?

A: That’s true. SquaredFinancial is regulated by CySec and FSA. These regulators have two different jurisdictions, and this is what allows us to reach markets at a larger scale. We are 100% compliant with regulations, and we take them very seriously, which adds to our transparency and integrity. But being under two regulators allows us to broaden our offering. This year, we expanded our financial products, offering our clients all over the world more than 10,000 instruments depending on the country they come from, and we’re still growing thanks to high demand from our clients. I’ll tell you why. Because we want our clients to have the opportunity to choose the asset class they want to invest in, and we want to be able to offer it to them. So, clients coming from Europe who are under CySec jurisdiction benefit from products that are different from clients who are under FSA jurisdiction.
