The narrative

Before he founded StocksTech, Stefan Sotirov worked as CEO of V1 Global Service (www.v1globalservice.com), a Bulgarian affiliate network operator, and as COO for regulated broker Trading 212 (www.trading212.com).

StocksTech is a Bulgarian white-label platform operated via the Cyprus entity Stockstech Ltd. However, its technical headquarters seem to be in Sofia, Bulgaria. Through its website, StocksTech offers a white-label broker solution including CRM and back office to (potential) retail clients in crypto, forex, stocks, and commodities. The company portrays itself as a well-funded FinTech community.

StocksTech challenges competitors like the Israeli-Cyprus PandaTS of Maor Lahav and Shmuel Gutman. The company hired the two Cyprus-based managers, Alexandros Kritiotis and Christos Metaxas, as CEO and CFO.

According to the LinkedIn statement of its CEO, Alexandros Kritiotis, StocksTech is a “startup fintech company that is in the process of getting its full CySEC license” as a technology and liquidity provider. It remains to be seen whether StocksTech will go the way of the Israeli FinTech and white-label platform provider Leverate and operate its own CySEC-regulated broker and/or liquidity provider to further its white-label platform. We will continue to follow the company.
