FX swaps and NDF pricing and data provider Digitec have added four new employees to its London office.
The office, which was opened in June, is cited as a key component in the firm’s growth strategy as it brings the team closer to its London-based clients and prospects, as well as regional FICC trading hubs.
George Procopiou, Anil Jassi and Liudmila Artyukhina, all join as client and sales enablement manager. Procopiou has 14 years of experience in FX and FICC client management, most recently working at IHS Markit, prior to which he had spells at Societe Generale and Anglo Irish Bank.
Jassi, meanwhile, has 12 years of FX corporate sales experience, having worked in e-FX and FX corporate sales at Deutsche Bank and, more recently, for just over three years at Moneycorp.
Artyukhina is transferring from the Hamburg office, where she previously worked for Digitec in IT and product management having joined the firm a little over four years ago.
Finally, Ioulia Grant joins as product owner. She has 15 years of experience in e-trading product management and software development having worked at Bank of America, HSBC, and Lloyds Banking Group. Grant has also worked in relationship management at Hotspot and CMC Markets.
All four hires will report to Stephan von Massenbach, who joined Digitec earlier this year as chief revenue officer and to head up and built out the London office.
“Making these key hires in London brings us closer to our clients and new prospects, which is key to Digitec’s future growth,“ says Peer Joost, COO of Digitec. “The first step was to bring in Stephan von Massenbach to open the London office and now we have a team of people with extensive financial markets experience to manage relationships, onboard new clients and enhance our range of products.”
Von Massenbach adds, “With an experienced new team in London we are able to engage with more clients and capture the market’s demand for automated FX swaps and NDF trading. Many of our new employees have cross asset experience and numerous industry relationships, which also helps to enhance our products to include pricing precious metals, interest rates and crypto assets.”
