Reactive Markets Poaches Henry Durrant from FXSpotStream

He is the second employee of the company, apart from the three Co-founders.

Henry Durrant has joined London-based Reactive Markets earlier this month as the trading technology provider’s Business Development Head.

“I am delighted to be joining a progressive tech company like Reactive Markets,” Durrant told Finance Magnates. “It’s a privilege to be working alongside such a great team and we look forward to delivering best in class trading technology to our clients in the institutional FX and Crypto market.”

Impressive Experience within FX

Durrant started his career in the forex market in 2012 out of college and has around eight years of experience in the industry.

He moved to Reactive Markets after serving for more than a year at FXSpotStream, which is a multi-bank forex streaming aggregation and matching service, as an assistant vice president.

Before he was at FXSpotStream, Durrant worked at 360TGTX. Over the one and a half years that he worked at the firm, he was employed in e-FX liquidity management. He joined the company when Deutsche Börse purchased Gain GTX ECN.
