Simon Fasdal – Saxo Bank’s new Global Head of Investor Sales

Starting out as Dealer in the firm’s money markets team, he worked his way up to become a Senior Dealer and then, in 2002, Head of Foreign Exchange and Money Market Trading. After a two year stint as Head of Bond Trading, he then spent almost five years as Nykredit Markets’ Head of Fixed Income Trading.

Now Fasdal will take up a new role as Global Head of Saxo Bank’s Investor Sales division. His change in roles may be due to shifts in the set of services and products that the Danish firm is now offering.
