Scandinavian Capital Markets was founded by Arif Alexander Ahmad, Michael Buchbinder, and a team of financial professionals. Arif had built a successful Asset Management Firm and had partnered with Michael Buchbinder to form the Forex branch of the company. Both Arif and Michael lead the company with shared values of integrity and trust, putting client needs at the top of priorities.

Originally established as a Wealth Management Company in 2011, Scandinavian Capital Markets obtained registration with the Swedish FSA a year later, to strategically focus on the forex market. After 5 years of operation, we launched Sweden’s first STP-ECN Brokerage in 2017. Scandinavian Capital Markets continues to grow and now offer clients the very best technology platforms, along with exceptional customer service - all designed to promote long term client partnerships.
