Finance Magnates reports with immense sadness that Victor Hendrix, CEO of Liquidity Connect, passed away last week. Hendrix was an industry veteran with nearly two decades of experience in the FX market.
“It is with great sadness that we inform you that Victor Hendrix, CEO, Liquidity Connect, passed away on June 17, 2021. Victor was a well-known and highly respected figure, having been in the industry since 2005. Our thoughts are with his family and colleagues during this difficult time,” Liquidity Connect mentioned in a brief statement this week.
Prominent names from the FX industry extended their condolences to the family and friends of Victor Hendrix.
Tom Higgins, CEO of Gold-i, said: “I first met Victor at a bar in Cyprus where he was attending an FX trade show, having just joined the FX industry selling hosting technology. I immediately knew that Victor would become a friend as he had such a warm and outgoing personality, as well as that enviable ability to talk to anyone with such ease. Victor made many friends and added many new clients in his first foray into FX, which, as it does for most of us in the industry, drew him in. When he left Beeks I was really surprised as he was at home in the world of hosting, and so I was really pleased when he set up Liquidity Connect to continue his passion.”
