Australian foreign exchange broker Pepperstone has recruited ex-AxiTrader executive Phil Horner as its newest General Manager, where he will be based out of Melbourne following a lengthy stint in the Aussie industry.
Pepperstone made headlines earlier this year amidst circulating rumors that they were a contender to secure Alpari UK’s remaining business, following a bitter insolvency in January. In addition, October of last year saw the restructuring of select services, namely Japan, following the intrepid arrival of an IPO.
