NAGA Hires Eurotrader’s Matthew Kent as Institutional Gross sales Director

An accomplished capital markets specialist has been appointed as managing director by NAGA.
The fintech company NAGA, situated in Germany, has hired Matthew Kent, an expert in the capital markets, to serve as its Managing Director for Europe and Africa. Prior to joining NAGA, Kent held positions at Eurotrader and the Valens Banking Group. He offers a wealth of experience to the newly established position.
On Wednesday, Kent made his new position known on LinkedIn. Throughout his fifteen-year career, Kent has had positions primarily in London with companies like CMC Markets, INFINOX Capital, Metropolis Index, and Valens Banking Group.
Prior to joining Eurotrader, Kent was the World Head of Sales for Capital Markets at Valens Banking Group for more than a year, from April 2019 to June 2020. Similar to this, he served as the Sales Director and Relationship Manager at Knightsbridge Capital Markets from April 2015 to January 2016. After that, he spent more than five years in same role at INFINOX Capital, having begun work there in August 2010.
Kent spent a year in 2007 and 2008 with Metropolis Index as an Institutional Sales Dealer and Relationship Manager earlier in his career. Between February 2004 and July 2005, he worked as a Wealth Management Advisor at the now-defunct London-based Arjent and as a Senior Wealth Manager at Sky Capital.
Kent’s appointment comes after NAGA appointed other executives in the past few months. The company appointed Stelios Eleftheriou as Managing Director of NAGA X, its cryptocurrency investment platform, and NAGA Pay, its payments subsidiary, in July. To oversee its dealing staff, NAGA brought on Antonis Monogios as its Head of Portfolio Management in June. To further expand its worldwide reach, NAGA last month obtained a licence in the Seychelles.
Stelios Eleftheriou, CEO of NAGA, will be Kent’s direct boss. NAGA’s CEO and founder, Benjamin Bilski, stated that the authorization will help the business improve its connections with banks and payment processors.
