LeapRate Exclusive… LeapRate has learned that FCA regulated FX prime broker Price Markets UK Ltd has hired experienced FX industry executive Ed Anderson as its new Head of Business Operations.
The move actually marks something of a homecoming for Mr. Anderson, who was previously with Price Markets (when the company was associated with LCG) from 2013-2014, before departing to FxPro. Mr. Anderson served as Chief Sales Officer UK at the London office of FxPro for the past four years. He has also previously worked at ICAP and Reuters.
The move comes just three months after we had exclusively reported that David Hastings, another well-known London FX executive, joined Price Markets as Managing Director.
Price Markets is a provider of FX Prime Brokerage and infrastructure services to the professional trading community. The company provides clearing, execution, hardware, software and networking infrastructure to a variety of price takers and price makers, including Broker/Dealers, Hedge Funds and Proprietary Traders. The company offers connectivity via a variety of trading platforms including MetaTrader ECN, Currenex, Integral, and Hotspot FX.
Price Markets is controlled by CEO Alex Talei and Malaysian investor Tan Jit Chun.
The company received its FCA license (matched principal broker) in 2016.
