LeapRate has learned that UAE based forex trading solutions provider ADS Securities has added Chris Hansen to the board of directors of its FCA regulated UK arm, ADS Securities London Limited.
Mr. Hansen’s appointment became effective as of January 1, 2017.
Chris Hansen is a 13 year veteran of Deutsche Bank AG (FRA:DBK), leaving DB in 2014 as Managing Director, Global Head of OTC Clearing Sales and European Head-Listed Derivative Sales. At Deutsche Bank he oversaw the complete ground-up build of regulatory compliant OTC clearing, collateral and trade reporting services.
As was reported exclusively at LeapRate earlier this month, ADS Securities has been going through a restructuring on a global basis, including the positioning of the UK arm and its ADS Prime brand to do more business with brokers and institutions. Mr. Hansen’s connections and experience in the London prime brokerage community should help further those ends.
Philippe Ghanem, Vice Chairman & CEO of ADS Securities said of adding Chris Hansen:
We are pleased to confirm Chris Hansen’s appointment to ADS Securities London Limited’s Board of Directors. His energy, industry experience and entrepreneurial background will no doubt serve us very well as we continue to grow and develop our UK and European presence.
Marco Baggioli, Executive Managing Director and Global Head of Brokerage at ADS Securities added:
I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Chris previously at Deutsche Bank and found him to be an incredibly talented, insightful leader. I am delighted to have the opportunity to work closely with him again and am confident that he will be a great asset to our diverse and talented Board.
