In 2010, Mr. Perry-Keane joined IG Group from MFGA where he held the position of Sales Manager, having previously spent a further three years in Derivatives Sales at the ill-fated MF Global‘s Australian division.
This particular opportunity affords Mr. Perry-Keane the ability to drive one of the more successful regional offices of IG Group forward, building on its strong performance during 2013, with the company’s market share having increased in Australia according to IG Group’s full-year results posted mid-2013, whilst the firm’s performance in the UK, its home market, continues to account for the majority of its business.
With the adoption of MetaTrader 4 during the course of last year, IG Group is well positioned to compete favorably in the Asia-Pacific region as the familiarity of the platform in the region strengthens the company’s diversity away from its CFD and spreadbetting core business.
