Edgewater Markets has opened an office in São Paulo to what it says is growing interest from Brazilian financial institutions. The new office will be headed by Charles Achoa, who was hired in October, at the time the new office was first announced.
“Brazil is a tremendous market for us, and one of the fastest-growing participants in currency trading globally,” says Jose-Antonio Buenaño, head of sales, Americas at the firm. “Edgewater believes strongly in ‘boots on the ground,’ where our uniquely experienced FX professionals, armed with unparalleled local knowledge, are closest to the markets, developments and players. With our significant and growing client base in Brazil, we’re excited to have São Paulo join our offices in Santiago, Mexico City.”
Brian Andreyko, chief product officer at Edgewater, adds, “We’re excited to be contributing to the growth and development of FX in Latin America, helping domestic markets expand their reach into the global institutional buy-side and sell-side trading communities.”
