Dr Buehler joined XTX last year in April as Deputy CEO. For the Co-CEO role, he replaced Zar Amrolia, who will now remain a part of XTX Group as a Non-Executive Chairman.

“It’s an honour to take over as Co-CEO from Zar. XTX is in a very strong business position, and I look forward to continuing to work with Alex to further grow the business,” Dr Buehler said.

Dr Buehler is a financial industry expert with more than two decades of experience. Before entering the corporate jungle, he obtained a PhD in Financial Mathematics. Before joining XTX, he worked at JPMorgan Chase for 14 years. There, he held several executive roles and parted with the banking giant as the Global Head of Equities Data Analytics, Automation & Optimisation and also of Equities, Sales, and Securities Services Quantive Research.

Also, he worked at the London offices of the Deutsche Bank for seven years, where he was the Global Head of Equity Derivatives Quantitative Research.

“It’s a pleasure to hand over the reins to Hans. I will give him and Alex my full support as Chairman to help drive XTX to even greater things. I wish him all the best in his new role,” Amrolia stated.
