FXSpotStream Recruits UBS Alum Matthew Fic to Head Americas Sales

The appointment comes two years after Matthew left UBS where he had been head of eFX Sales for the Americas.

FXSpotStream LLC, the aggregator service of LiquidityMatch LLC, said it hired Matthew K. Fic to be its Senior Vice President, Head of Sales in the Americas.

The appointment comes little more than two years after Matthew left UBS, where he had been Executive Director and Head of eFX Sales for the Americas at the Swiss bank. In that role, he was responsible for sales of UBS’ foreign exchange trading services for a client segment that covers asset manager and hedge funds, with a focus on API clients.

An eight-year tenure took Fic’s career at UBS between 2011 and 2018, where he originally joined the bank responsible for eFX sales in North America. This position was preceded by more than four years he spent at the bank earlier in his career, having held different roles as FX business analyst from 2001 to 2005.

Prior to that, the FX veteran occupied a similar role at broker-neutral technology firm FlexTrade, where he spent more than five years as Head of sales in its FX division.
