CMC Markets adds Malcolm Ford to its London team, expands offering to hedge funds

CMC Markets Plc announces a number of changes to its Board of Directors

CMC Markets Institutional, a provider of liquidity and white label trading solutions, has just announced that it has added equity and derivative brokerage specialist Malcolm Ford to its team.

Ford has worked with both the buy and sell side, liaising with clients right across Europe, Asia, South Africa and the USA. During his 30 years experience, he represented industry mainstays such as Crédit Agricole Cheuvreux, Morgan Stanley and Linear Investments, as well as assisting a series of Fintech start-ups through Jon Carp’s Finceler8.

Just a month ago, CMC Markets added Ross Newell to its team as Business Development Manager, Institutional Business.

Malcolm Ford will be in charge of promoting the multi-asset liquidity offering to a wider range of hedge funds and smaller institutions.

Richard Elston, Head of Institutional at CMC Markets, commented:

The hedge fund industry is evolving quickly. Growth is being seen amongst the smaller, agile funds, but many are struggling to find high quality liquidity through traditional channels. Our multi-asset institutional proposition, including access to over 9,000 single stock CFDs, has never been more relevant to this sector, providing both market depth and keen pricing in an underserviced market.
