Eiger welcomes Steve Moulder to its Board of Directors


Eiger Trading Advisors Limited (‘Eiger’ or the ‘Company’), a leading financial technology company specialising in commodity facilitation services, announced the appointment of Steve Moulder to its Board of Directors as a Non-Executive Director, effective 15th March 2021.

“Steve’s background and skillset is ideally suited to support Eiger’s focus on strong future growth as we continue to invest in our market-leading financial technology,” said Stephen Openshaw, Eiger’s CEO. “His executive-level leadership in Treasury and Investment markets at Gulf International Bank in Bahrain will add immediate strategic benefits and expand the focus and experience of our board”.

Steve Moulder is an accomplished Banking and Treasury executive, with a career spanning 41 years in banking and financial markets, across the United Kingdom and the Middle East. His experience in his most recent roles as Chief Investment and Treasury Officer and Senior Advisor to the Group CEO of Gulf International Bank in Bahrain, comes after having spent 33 years with the organisation in various roles in their Treasury Department.

He will join the Board as its fourth member alongside Chairman Bruce Collins, David Lawson, and CEO Stephen Openshaw.

Moulder’s career at Gulf International Bank in Bahrain has provided him with extensive knowledge of the key markets where Eiger operates as well as a deep understanding of the commodity trade facilitation services that Eiger offers. In 2014, Eiger launched the first fully-automated, Shariah- compliant 24/7 Commodity Murabaha platform, in conjunction with Gulf International Bank’s (GIB) KSA retail arm, under the ‘Meem’ brand name. At the time, the fully-automated Islamic e-banking solution was a world first, offering 24/7 online personal finance and deposits to retail clients in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

“Steve’s understanding of our market leading technology will be key in contributing to developing Eiger’s strategy and risk mitigation policies. I’m confident that Steve will offer fresh perspectives as the Company continues its efforts to help drive profitability and create significant shareholder value” said COO Christopher McGuigan.
