Dubai headquartered brokerage ADS Securities has onboard Nidal Abdelhadi as the company’ new Head of Global Institutional Sales. He joins the company after a short stint at Advanced Markets where he worked as a Managing Director for about half a year.
Mr Abdelhadi has been actively involved in the FX industry since 2003, when he joined Swiss brokerage company MIG Investments as Sales Manager. He continued to work at the company after it received a banking license and was renamed to MIG Bank as Head of Institutional Sales until 2013.

MIG Bank was then acquired by Swissquote and Abdelhadi continued working in the company’s Geneva office until January 2016.
The industry veteran then continued his career with a short term CEO position at the infamous Dubai-based company Fortress Prime. As the details about the operations of the brokerage emerged, Abdelhadi chose to leave the firm shortly after he accepted the position.
ADS Securities is one of the biggest brokers in the Middle East and its DFSA license has been boosting the company’s position in the region for years. Mr Abdelhadi was appointed to his new position at the company earlier this year, in April.
