A global leader in online multi-asset trading services, OANDA is pleased to announce Kazuaki Takabatake has joined the firm as Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Asia Pacific, based in Singapore. An industry veteran with close to 25 years experience across the financial services and FinTech sectors, Kazuaki will be responsible for driving OANDA’s continued growth across the region.

Ed Eger, President & CEO of OANDA Corporation, commented, “We are delighted to welcome Kaz to the firm. A seasoned professional, he brings with him a wealth of experience in the financial services sector and a deep-seated knowledge of the Asia-Pacific region, which will be invaluable as we look to shape the company’s global and regional strategies in the months to come.”

Kazuaki Takabatake commented, “I am thrilled to be joining OANDA at such a unique stage in the firm’s growth story. While the company’s regional operations have borne tremendous success over the last three years, increasing active clients by 100 percent during this period alone, a host of untapped opportunities remain in the market that are yet to be realised. I’m confident we can continue to fuel OANDA’s expansion throughout Asia Pacific by further developing our award-winning platform and world-class multi-asset trading services.”

Takabatake’s appointment further demonstrates OANDA’s ongoing commitment to the Asia-Pacific region, most notably the key markets of Singapore, Japan, Greater China and Australia. The company combines cutting-edge trading technology and exceptional execution across a wide range of asset classes, enabling clients to trade global market indices, commodities, treasuries, precious metals and currencies on both fxTrade and MT4 platforms.
