Prior to CMC, Manjit was a partner in an M&A boutique, Gleacher Shacklock LLP, where she had a particular focus on financial institutions and the media.

Ms. Wolstenholme also served as co-head for investment bank Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, where she served for 13 years and was responsible for managing the division as well as advising clients on a wide range of transactions.

Last week, CMC Markets launched a new prime FX proposition, part of a growing institutional offering for the group and its latest bid to help shore up an industry liquidity gap.

The development comes at a time when a number of traditional prime brokers have been scaling back or mitigating the scope of their dealings with smaller banks and brokers. This has created a shortage of liquidity, resulting in gaps. CMC Markets’ Prime FX was launched with the aim of reconciling this disparity and better meet client demands.
