Abu Dhabi based financial services firm ADSS is continuing to expand its sales presence in its London office, with a further two senior hires in the institutional sales space, following on from its recent diversification into the Sales Trading support function.

Mr Andrews has over 30 years of experience in Futures, Forex, Equity and CDF sales trading and account management. Prior to holding his position at ADSS, Mr Andrews worked at GKFX Financial Services and Saxo Capital Markets, moving through a variety of sales-led roles. He was responsible for the sales trading and account management side of the business, servicing both the bank’s retail and institutional clients.
ADSS also welcome Steven Whittet as Co-Head of Institutional Sales for its UK business. Mr Whittet holds a wealth of experience in FX and Financial markets, having worked across both Banks and Brokers. Mr Whittet previously held managerial roles in FX sales at Commonwealth Bank of Australia and ICAP Securities. Following this, he joined The Kyte Group as Head of FX, before he later joined GKFX Financial Services as Global Head of Institutional Sales, where he introduced the set up of a new Prime Broker and Trading Platform for the company.
Commenting on the expansion, Paul Webb, CEO at ADSS London, said:
Over the last twelve months the Firm has made a considerable investment in our proprietary Orex technology and trading platform, the result of which is a market leading product in the institutional and B2B space. Steve and Chris have a strong track record of growing a business, and their significant experience combined with the Orex product is a further clear sign of ADSS ambitions to continue expanding its business model.
