Foreign exchange execution services and data analytics provider Curex Group announced today that Andre Severi has joined its ranks as Managing Director.
Based in London, Andre Severi will focus on the development of customer relationships for Cürex throughout continental Europe, the UK, Ireland and the Middle East.
A 25 year FX markets veteran, Mr. Severi has held numerous senior sales leadership positions at leading global banks. Most recently, he served as Head of European Institutional FX Sales for Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) in London. Prior to his relocation to the UK, he was Head of Institutional and Hedge Fund FX Sales in North America for RBC. Before that, Mr. Severi served as Head of European & Middle East Institutional FX Sales for State Street Bank in London where he spent 14 years. Mr. Severi started his career at Credit Agricole where for five years he worked as Vice President and Senior Trader FX, both in Paris and New York.
Commenting on Mr. Severi’s hire, Jamie Singleton, Cürex Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said,
Andre joining the Cürex team is a strong endorsement of Cürex’s growing market position. He has developed important client relationships over a long and successful career. Those institutions have an increasingly urgent need to adopt FX trading solutions and analytics that support best execution and allow them to prove their compliance to MiFID II and MiFIR regulations.
Andre recognizes the value proposition that Cürex brings to the buy side customer in this new, challenging regulatory environment. I am confident he will make a valuable contribution to his customer base and to Cürex’s business development efforts in the EMEA regions.
Mr. Severi added,
After leaving RBC, I have considered a number of different opportunities, but Cürex represents the most compelling and innovative product and service offering to the buy side that I found in my search. The FX marketplace will evolve rapidly over the near term, and as a solution provider Cürex offers differentiated outcomes that the buy side community will certainly embrace. I am excited to join the Cürex team and deliver their best execution solutions to institutions struggling under a growing compliance burden. I look forward to contributing my effort to make Cürex the buy side destination for best execution.
