With over 40 years combined FX Options experience, Simon and Asa have unrivalled market knowledge. Their extensive list of contacts, combined with Laura’s comprehensive FX relationships in Europe will help to drive our future growth,”, said Mark Suter, Executive Chairman and Co-Founder, Digital Vega. “Based in Singapore, Simon will head up our business development in APAC, as we leverage market growth in the region. Asa is responsible for delivering our new FX Options Central Limit Order Book and will also focus on our Market Data services. Laura will manage client relationships in EMEA.

He added:

By connecting to new liquidity providers and clients in Europe and Asia, enhancing our Vanillas platform and launching a new Exotics service, Digital Vega can build on its leading position in electronic FX Options trading.

I have known Digital Vega as a liquidity provider and seen first-hand the client demand for its services. As the firm expands geographically and adds services aligned with wealth management, I am confident that we can capture the growing volumes in this asset class,” pointed out Simon Nursey.

The FX Options market is at a tipping point, with client demand for e-trading driving market evolution. Digital Vega is already considered a market leader, and by increasing workflow automation for Vanillas, and developing a new initiative in FX Option trading for the wealth management industry, we expect market volumes to grow significantly,” commented Asa Attwell.

I have joined Digital Vega at an exciting time, where significant investment is being made into new products and client relationship management, which are aimed at capturing the expected volume growth in the FX Options market,” concluded Laura Winkler.
