The Path Toward Compliance

It was in November 2001 when Mr. Henry’s career path shifted from banking to FX brokerages, when he became Middle Office Manager at HiFX, a UK-based foreign exchange broker and payments provider. He left his position following a three year tenure to focus on the compliance end of the business. From March 2005 through November 2008, he gained practical experience in compliance related roles at various financial companies, namely Threadneedle Investments, Morley Fund Management, Moneycorp, First Trade Derivatives, and Bishopsgate Capital Ltd., before taking an interim position at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management in the summer of 2010.

In January of 2011, Mr. Henry became a Compliance Officer at Gain Capital, remaining in this position for three and a half years. He then worked in similar positions at ETX Capital and LMAX Exchange through October 2016. He was able to leverage his extensive compliance expertise into more senior positions, serving as Head of Compliance at London Capital Group for eight months, and immediately thereafter transferring to work in the same position at Goldenway Global Investments.

While it is currently not known what his next landing spot will be, Mr. Henry’s experience in compliance certainly stands out as extensive.
