New York based Wahed, which calls itself a global Shariah compliant FinTech, has announced the appointment of Mohsin Siddiqui as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Mohsin Siddiqui joined Wahed last year as Chief Operating Officer (COO). Prior to this, he was with UK–based RegTech ComplyAdvantage (which is run by another OANDA alum, Vatsa Narasimha), serving as its Chief Revenue Officer, tasked with leading its revenue growth objectives after its Series-C round of funding. Mohsin started his career at Retail FX and CFDs broker OANDA where he worked for eight years (2012-2020), with his last role at OANDA being Chief Customer Officer and Managing Director. At OANDA, Mohsin grew OANDA’s core presence in the US and Canadian markets and spearheaded its expansion into several APAC markets.

“More important than his decorated CV, Mohsin has a deep and personal connection with our mission and values and a clear understanding of why over 350,000 clients choose to invest with Wahed. In less than a year as COO, he has made an immediate impact on the business and I have complete confidence that he is the right person to continue to drive Waheds growth.”

On his appointment, Mohsin Siddiqui said:

“The vision of Wahed is to create an inclusive and accessible global financial ecosystem. We have already made incredible strides in the last few years in realizing this mission. I look forward to the journey ahead as we continue to unlock new product lines and markets to serve a global community of over 2 billion Muslims.’
