Stuart Crooks also comes on board as Director of FX Business Development in EMEA. Formerly of R5FX, where he most recently served as head of liquidity & product management, Stuart joins to enhance IHS Markit’s expertise in the emerging region and grow its client network.
IHS Markit has also appointed Steven Singh as Product Development Manager of FX Trading.
With more than 17 years’ experience in the investment services industry, Mr. Singh will play a key role in driving new client engagement through defining the product roadmap for the RefleX eFX trading system. He is also responsible for expanding the firm’s capabilities to offer banks an end-to-end eFX solution for aggregation, hedging, pricing and distribution.
Steven joins from EBS BrokerTec, ICAP’s electronic foreign exchange (FX) and fixed income business, which rebranded to NEX Markets after ICAP sold off its voice broking unit to Tullett Prebon, where he spent two years as product manager for its trading applications.
Chris Leaver, head of business development for MarkitSERV FX commented on the new hires: “We are delighted that Randy, Steven and Stuart have joined the global FX team at IHS Markit, demonstrating our commitment to our growing FX client base.
