Alternatively, Mr. Osborne has been named as Sucden Financial’s Finance Director and will take over the role from the outgoing Robert James, who is slated to retire by month’s end after a 15-year stint with the group. Mr. Osborne joins Sucden Financial from Czarnikow Group Limited, having worked as its Chief Financial Officer for nearly seven years.

The two new appointments also coincide with a promotion at Sucden Financial, which will see Alexander Culley step into the role of Group Compliance Officer. Mr. Culley originally joined Sucden Financial back in 2013 and has since been tasked with the group’s FATCA reporting, focusing on EMIR regulations, derivatives, central counterparties, and trade repositories.

According to Michael Overlander, Chief Executive, Sucden Financial Limited, in a recent statement on the appointments, “The appointments mark a new chapter for the firm, positioning the company for its next stage of growth. Marc and Toby will play vital roles in working with me and the other directors at Sucden Financial to manage and further develop our brokerage activities.”

“The environment in which we operate will continue to change with greater regulatory obligations. Compliance is a vital part of the business, protecting both our clients and the company, and I am confident that with Alex’s appointment we will continue to ensure we remain fully compliant with all our existing and future regulatory obligations.”

Furthermore, “Robert James’ contribution to the company during his time with us has been broad and extensive and we wish him all the best in his retirement,” he added.
