It has just been announced that Sucden Financial’s e-FX team posted record volumes over the last quarter, following the recent appointment of Peter Brooks as Head of e-FX. Peter has over twenty years of experience in the financial markets, including over five years as Head of e-FX Client Coverage at Sucden Financial.
Although Sucden Financial did not release the absolute number, it did say that in Q3 volumes increased by 24% and by 91% from the same period last year. This is attributed by the firm to the onboarding of a number of new clients, in addition to a significant increase in volumes from existing clients who have been able to grow their business as a result of the service provided by the London-based Prime of Prime broker.
