According to publicly available information posted on LinkedIn, Tom Robinson, the former head of electronic foreign exchange (eFX) sales at Goldman Sachshas, has taken on a new role. After having left the world of big banking in May of this year, he’s decided to join the ranks of MahiFX as Head of Sales.
The broker with offices in Christchurch (New Zealand) and in Mayfair (London) has brought this experienced executive on board in order to boost its position on the foreign exchange market. Earlier this year, the company obtained a derivatives market making license from the New Zealand financial markets regulator FMA (Financial Markets Authority).
MahiFX is a market maker, and also holds an operational license from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Mr Robinson has become an experienced financial markets professional over the past couple of decades after career choices have led him to positions at Bloomberg, Barclays Capital and most recently Goldman Sachs, where he spent over 8 years.
Recently a website called Great Trade has used some content from the website of MahiFX, including a photograph of one of its co-founders and CEO David Cooney. The regulated broker has posted the following statement on its website: “It has come to our attention that a website called Great Trade has been using some of our information and images. We’d just like to let you know that this website is fake, and has no affiliation with MahiFX. We have reported Great Trade to the appropriate organisations.”
