Brooks Leads Sucden Financial to Record e-FX Volumes

LONDON--()--Sucden Financial’s e-FX team has posted record volumes over the last quarter, following the recent appointment of Peter Brooks as Head of e-FX. Peter has over twenty years’ experience in the financial markets, including over five years as Head of e-FX Client Coverage at Sucden Financial.

In Q3 volumes increased by 24% and by 91% from the same period last year. This is attributed to the onboarding of a number of new clients in addition to a significant increase in volumes from existing clients who have been able to grow their business as a result of the service provided by the award-winning London-based Prime of Prime broker.

Michael Overlander, CEO, Sucden Financial, comments “Peter Brooks has a proven track record at Sucden Financial. We have a range of non-FX products in our retail broker offering and Peter’s broader experience is invaluable in driving this growing and unique area of our business forward.”
