Saxo Bank, one of the fastest-growing multi-asset trading services providers, announced that Peter Morris, the former Managing Director Global Brokerage Operations at BGC Partners, has joined its subsidiary Saxo Markets UK Limited as the new Chief Operating Officer (COO) today.

With nearly 4 decades of experience from the global corporate sector, Morris will oversee the expansion of Saxo Markets UK. In his career, the newly appointed COO of Saxo Market UK has worked with companies like Cognizant, Broadridge Financial Solutions, Smartstream Systems and Nomura.

In addition, Morris has joined Saxo Markets UK Limited as a Board Member. Based in London, Morris will report to Charles White-Thomson, the CEO of Saxo Markets UK.

“Peter’s depth and breadth of expertise across the trading and technology landscape will be a huge asset to the firm at a time of great growth potential for the industry, which will undoubtedly bring more opportunities for differentiation through technology, strong operational foundations and risk management. We are delighted to have him on board,” White-Thomson commented.

Appointments

Earlier this month, Saxo Markets UK announced the addition of Nicholas Wilcock and Michael Ridley to its Board as Non-Executive Directors. In September last year, Saxo Bank announced the appointment of Damian Hitchen as the CEO of the MENA Region.

“Morris brings significant expertise managing operations across finance, IT, risk management, legal and compliance at a time when Saxo Markets UK continues to expand its offering amid exceptional growth in the investment and trading space,” Saxo highlighted in a press release shared with Finance Magnates.

“Saxo has always placed a strong emphasis on operational robustness, and this is evidenced in the fact that its retail clients have long benefited from the institutional-like experience. I am excited to help the firm continue to lead on operational resilience as the sector grows in both size and complexity,” Morris commented.
