About Us

HISTORY OF THE COMPANY

Established in 2012, we at CMTrading have come a long way. Ever since our establishment, we have managed to create our niche in the trading industry and established ourselves as a force to be reckoned with. Our motto has always been “Founded by traders, for traders,” and that is a message we strive to convey. We believe in trust, transparency and education and this is where we’ve carved our niche. We provide our investment service by prioritising education and a safe environment to trade. CMTrading aims to uplift our customers through knowledge and make them feel confident to place trades on their own.  

We understand that for many, parting with their hard-earned money is a huge decision, and aim to make it easy to trade so that they always feel supported! We want every one of our customers to have the best possible trading experience. 

About Us

Ibrahim A. Aita,

Co-founder, and CEO of CMTrading:

“The mark of a great business is its legacy, and in 2022 CMTrading celebrates its 10th anniversary. I’d like to give you a brief history of our company.  

Back in 2011, after years of experience in the financial services industry, my former partner and I decided to establish our own investment firm. We were so confident about our venture that we resigned from our senior positions to launch a roadshow to seek investment to launch the company. However, it was not an easy ride. We couldn’t get the desired funding amount, and things didn’t work out the way we wanted, forcing us to start the company all over again. We had a strong belief in our plans and what we were doing, so we carried on, betting on our jobs and savings. This was the foundation of what later became CMTrading in May 2012.  

The rest is history. The business took off and we didn’t need any added funding. We first partnered with a big local firm to provide us with the regulatory umbrella, but they lacked basic knowledge of customer support, which we eventually mastered. So, we parted ways, knocked them out of the market, and conquered the leading brokers in South Africa. Ten years later, we’ve evolved into a growing global business running from Africa to the Middle East. I can proudly say our business has stood the test of time.

"Trust is earned"

We’ve gained a great reputation over the years and achieved many awards along the way; Best Performing Broker in Africa, Best Partner Program in the GCC, and Best IB Program in the GCC, are just some of the accolades we’ve achieved in 2022 so far! All our awards validate our efforts to deliver a world-class trading platform.  

Yet they are still materialistic rewards. For me, the best performance is hearing our customer feedback and that we continue to lead through great reviews. Trust is earned and this is an incredibly valuable commodity in an industry that’s unfortunately known for fraudulent activities and swindles. We are proud to maintain our path faithfully and service our customers’ needs with trust and transparency.  

In conclusion, we hope you’ve gained insight into why 1,000,000 happy clients trade and trust CMTrading.
