Emerging markets-focused FX ECN DMALink has named Thomas Soede and Greg Myers to its advisory board as senior regional advisers for EMEA.
Both men have held consultant/advisory positions across fintech companies for several years with Soede having transitioned from a banking career that took in management roles in e-FX distribution at Lehman Brothers and JP Morgan, as well as on BNP Paribas’ Centric e-FICC platform.
Myers is currently part of the leadership teams of two start-ups in the fintech and cyber security space, Custodiex and Stayprivate, as well as a board member of Firedrake, of which Soede is CEO.
“We are fortunate to bring to DMALINK a person of Thomas’s deep financial markets sector experience, connectivity, and insight,” says Manu Choudhary, CEO of DMALink. “His powerful understanding of the foreign exchange market will bring considerable value to our clients across the region and beyond.”
Meanwhile, Michael Siwek, founder and global head of e-FX at the firm adds, “Our UK and EMEA clients will benefit from Greg’s expertise gained from an impressive career across a range of sectors.”
As well as FX, both men will advise on DMALink’s work in digital assets as it seeks to build out its institutional footprint in this asset class. “We are at a turning point in how institutions think about digital assets,” says Myers. “With the introduction of regulatory framework standards and the reduction in counterparty risk, global financial institutions will gain additional confidence in offering digital currency products to clients.”
