Prior to that, he was at IG Singapore as the head of institutional sales for almost four years, where he was responsible for IG’s brand building in the APAC region.

He spent over a decade at the two Saxo units combined and mostly worked in growing and developing the company’s institutional business. Furthermore, he oversaw the sales and trading activities across all asset classes and handled the budget of growing business in the APAC region.
Hornsleth started his career at Denmark’s Nordea Bank and moved to Singapore as a senior manager of global markets for the bank. He later moved to the Singaporean unit of Danske Bank in a similar role and also had a short stint outside the forex industry.
