Hiary joined CFI in 2018 as an executive in its Jordan branch where he eventually became co-head of business development.

The appointment comes just after the firm launched its UAE entity as a category one licensed broker, the most capitalised category within the SCA licensing regime.

According to Hisham Mansour, co-founder and managing director of CFI Financial Group, the appointment reflects that “the UAE is a key market for us and is pivotal for the region”.
