Mr. Woodcock is an FX industry veteran, having worked at numerous trading and risk management operations over his career. He has previously held senior level roles at Broadgate Mercury, Swiss Finance Corporation Ltd, and Credit Lyonnais Rouse.
According to a recent statement from Steven Woodcock on the appointment, “the currency markets have enjoyed a bumper year as far as movement is concerned, the US Dollar has managed to break above some long term downtrend levels and has given the impression we could be in for some Dollar strength throughout the coming months. It looks like more volatility and uncertainty will be the way for the near future.”
“Steve is a valuable addition to our dealing and risk management operation, his vast knowledge and expertise will strengthen our front and back office framework. We are an ambitious firm so it is important for us to continue to add quality personnel what have strong industry knowledge and are experts at their field,” added Mr. de Souza in an accompanying statement.
