Four hires will be based in the DeepWell’s London headquarters. Alex Finney, formerly of Credit Suisse and Brevan Howard, has joined as the firm’s Global Head of FX. He is joined by another former Credit Suisse man, Kieren McCormack, who has been appointed as Head of Origination.

As with Yell, Ajay Patel joins the firm with the goal of focusing on macro hedge funds. Patel has worked at Morgan Stanley, RBS and Deutsche Bank and Blacksquare Capital. Another former RBS employee, Tom Thatcher, has been appointed Senior Business Manager. Thatcher was in part responsible for onboarding FX prime brokerage clients at RBS, something that will likely come in handy as he starts his new role at DeepWell

Our team brings extensive sell-side and buy-side knowledge, making us ideally placed to help our clients support their trading requirements.”
