Under the leadership of the Equiti Group’s CEO, Mr Iskandar Najjar, Equiti has transformed into a fast-growing global industry challenger. In recent years, the company has expanded its global footprint to new regions and new continents, growing threefold in size while increasing its product offering by over 300%.

The company’s mission is to deliver to its clients highly tailored solutions, superior service, fast execution, best value prices, and to be at the forefront of innovation in the fintech sector.

Innovation is one of the driving forces behind Equiti Group’s growth trajectory and will remain the focus of the company over the next five years.

Iskandar Najjar, Equiti Group CEO:

“Equiti is fully committed to exploring and developing new cutting-edge technologies, new product offerings, developing new ways of doing things better that will achieve scalability, and give us a leading advantage and added impetus for further global growth.

”Everything we do, everything we develop, at every level, and in every market, evolves around striving to deliver the best experience and world-class offerings for our clients.

“Our success is driven by our passion to be the best in the industry.”

“Every one of our clients is highly valuable to us, we invest in technology and in developing new offerings and solutions, and work extremely hard to continually improve, innovate and grow every day with our clients being top-of-mind and at the heart of our business.”
