Phil Weisberg, CEO at FXall commented: "Our expansion into India emphasizes the growing importance of Indian customers and the impact the region is having on the global FX market. By opening an office in Mumbai and becoming an accredited FEDAI (Foreign Exchange Dealer's Association of India) member, we are reinforcing our commitment to fully comply with the new FEDAI guidelines to provide members with integrated access to the best foreign exchange liquidity available. We have seen a tremendous evolution of forex trading in India recently and believe that the Indian foreign exchange market is poised for exponential growth in the months and years to come. Our new Mumbai office will play a significant role in FXall's ability to service our clients in India as well as to better serve our global client base.
Within FXall's Asia franchise, the experienced team in India will be lead by Giles Castelino who will head up the new office in Mumbai reporting to Jonathan Woodward, Head of FXall Asia.
