Tracey founded Schneider Foreign Exchange with Nick Edgeley and Shelton Fray. The company was acquired by Monex Group in July 2012 and rebranded as Monex Europe Ltd.

Finance Magnates reported on Tracey’s stepping down as Monex Europe’s director last year, but his plans in the industry were unknown then.

Regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Ballinger offers its services to corporations and institutions. The brokerage is expecting to benefit from the leadership of Tracey who has decades of experience in the FX industry.

“We are delighted that Will has joined Ballinger & Co. as Executive Chairman. It is no overstatement to say that Will wrote the playbook for our industry – his record speaks for itself. There is genuinely no one better placed to help Ballinger grow and with Will on board, we are looking to rapidly expand the business globally,” Tom Dudderidge, CEO of Ballinger, added.
