Online trading, digital assets and cryptocurrencies have seen a significant increase over the past decade. Some frequently asked questions include: Is buying stocks online safe? What tips should you know before you start trading online? Are cryptocurrencies a safe investment? What is the most profitable way of trading? Most of these queries were addressed at a special event organised by Gulf Business and CMTrading on June 16 at the Pullman Downtown Dubai. The event, which saw fintech and investment experts interact with new and experienced traders, was a great success.
Established in 2012, CMTrading is an award-winning broker, offering over 150 products, including commodities, stocks, indices and cryptocurrencies. “To be successful, however, you need to partner with a trusted broker, then use a modern and friendly app that supports and facilitates different investment tools to fit them to your needs. CMTrading ideally meets that objective and is perfectly positioned to empower everyone to become a trader through our award-winning platform,” said Ibrahim Abu Aita, founder of CMTrading at the event. “Ten years later, we’ve evolved into a growing global business running in South America, Africa and Middle East. I can proudly say our business has stood the test of time, thanks to not only the founders, but also the dedicated and talented team – their contribution to the business was undeniable and admirable,” added Ibrahim.
With more than one million subscribers, it has been a successful decade for CMTrading. “And now it’s time to level up for the next ten years. We will always seek new opportunities and overcome challenges with the same spirit and vision that have brought us so much success in the past,” concluded Ibrahim.
The event gathered key speakers from the finance industry for some thought-provoking discussions on the current investment landscape – across three engaging panel discussions. The theme of the first session was ‘Digital Assets and Cryptocurrency’. Moderated by Divsha Bhat, technology editor of Gulf Business, the speakers included Saqr Mashhor Ereiqat, co-founder at Crypto Oasis; Ola Lind, chief strategy officer, Future Fintech Group and director of FTFT subsidiary; and Ali Askar, a quant trader. It was an insightful panel where the speakers discussed the latest investment strategies, market trends, future of digital assets, recent regulatory developments and how to mitigate risks associated with crypto.
It was an impactful panel where the speakers talked about the challenges and benefits of short-term trading versus long-term investments, key trading strategies in uncertain times and the rise of impact investing. The third and final session for the evening was ‘Building Relationships with Introducing Businesses’. Moderated by Neesha Salian, editor of Gulf Business, the panel featured Wilson Varghese, GM and head of operations – Middle East, Zurich Insurance; Charlie Charalambous, head of Global IBs (Introducing Businesses), CMTrading; and Rus Kolinko, co-founder and managing partnerof Hometree, a property valuation company.
This panel discussion stressed the importance of strong partnerships to build a business, and the impact of customer service.

This is what CMTrading discovered when collaborating with Gulf Business. The attendance was great, the panel was professional and the discussions were intriguing. I’m happy and grateful for the diversity, organisation and great exposure.”
