KVB Kunlun loses CEO and CFO
The appointment of Wu as an executive director follows on from the departure of KVB Kunlun’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO), leaving the foreign exchange (forex) broker in recent months.
As Finance Magnates reported, Stefan Liu, who had been with the firm since 2001, left the position of CEO in July. The broker did not provide a reason for his departure.
One month later, it was announced that the broker’s CFO Wong Yiu Kit was also leaving the firm. As Finance Magnates highlighted at the time, Wong left the firm “in order to devote more time to his other personal engagements.”
