Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: July 13, 2023
Monex Europe has strengthened its team with two senior appointments in FX options. Michael Huggett joins as senior options trader, and Chris Weeks joins as head of options sales. Both will report into Tom Farrow, group director of trading.
Huggett has 30 years’ experience in financial markets and joins from HSBC, where he was director of UK corporate sales, responsible for the firm’s FX derivative solutions. He worked at HSBC for eight-and-a-half years, having joined the bank from over 17 years at Lloyds Bank, most latterly as head of FX structuring.
Weeks joins from FX payments and risk management provider Convera (formerly Western Union Business Solutions), where he was head of hedging. He worked for the business for over 10 years in FX options and structuring roles.
“With growing economic and market uncertainty making it harder than ever for businesses to forecast with confidence, we are offering our clients a suite of hedging solutions, which will enable them to identify and mitigate risk while benefiting from volatile conditions,” says Farrow. “Chris and Michael’s experience and complementary skillsets will be instrumental in fulfilling our objective to set a new industry benchmark in our options solutions.”
