GMI is on a Hiring Spree
GMI has ramped up it’s hiring process as last year the firm onboarded two senior members from FXCM – former head of FXCM Pro, Chris Hossain-Nelson and former head of IB Partnerships, Aaron Brown. Further, it partnered with Gold-i to make its multi-asset liquidity accessible via Gold-i’s Matrix product, as reported by Finance Magnates last month.
Earlier this month, Richard Bartlett, who was the sales director at GMI, separated from the firm after a short stint of four months.
