Saxo Capital Markets UK has seen the departure of Andrew Stylianou, the group’s Head of Legal and Compliance and Company Secretary. The decision will see Mr. Stylianou part ways with Saxo Capital Markets after a three-year stint, who will be replaced by Rachel Przybylski.
Stylianou originally joined Saxo Capital Markets back in mid-2015. The entirety of his career has been focused on the financial services space, working in a number of different venues. During his time at Saxo Capital Markets, he held the role of Head of Legal and Compliance and Company Secretary.
