Multi-asset financial firm, Cantor Fitzgerald, has expanded its FX sales and trading teams by adding two former Goldman Sachs executives, Joseph Pinto and Stephan McElreath to its New York base of operations.
Cantor Fitzgerald specializes in a variety of trading instruments, with FX being a prime constituent of its business. Late last month the company also appointed a new Director. The new twin appointments are meant to fortify an already strong team, headed by James Reilly, the Senior Managing Director and Global Head of FX Sales and Trading.
