IS Prime, the new foreign exchange brokerage service launched in late 2014, has today announced that it has hired two former Sucden Financial employees, Andrew Biggs and Jean Claude Francois.
Mr. Biggs’ role will focus on delivering tailor-made solutions for IS Prime’s institutional client base, with responsibility for electronic trading solutions, client coverage and analytics; while Mr. Francois will be the lead contact for client on-boarding, reporting and front-to-back MT4 set-ups.
Mr. Biggs’ career has focused on e-FX and CFD sales and execution. His introduction to the industry was at a successful retail brokerage where he swiftly rose to head the European sales and coverage team before joining the Institutional Sales Desk at Sucden Financial, where his role encompassed client coverage, liquidity and execution management. He graduated from Imperial College London with an honours degree in Chemistry and Management earning an Associateship of the Royal College of Science.
Mr. Francois has ten years’ experience in the financial industry having started his career as a KYC/AML analyst at the Caisse des Depots et Consignations, Paris, and then Banque Indosuez, Mer Rouge, Djibouti-Africa, before moving to London to join the graduate program at Bank of America.
He later joined the Institutional Sales desk at Sucden Financial where his role included client coverage and responsibility for MT4. Mr. Francois has a Finance Degree from the Rouen School of Management and has studied at the University of Tuebingen, Germany, and at the University of Salamanca, Spain, as part of the Erasmus Exchange Program. He is fluent in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Tamil.
Raj Sitlani, working alongside former colleague at Sucden Financial, Jonathan Brewer as Managing Partner of IS Prime, comments, “Having worked with Andrew and Jean Claude for a number of years, we are very pleased they are joining IS Prime as we approach our official launch.”
“We want to assemble a strong team of the highest calibre, with people we know and trust and who are able to bring with them significant expertise in FX brokerage, but are also familiar with our institutional client base. In Andrew and Jean Claude we have two outstanding individuals who bring the capabilities and skills that will drive IS Prime forward in 2015 to deliver a truly ground-breaking, solution-driven and transparent approach” concluded Mr. Sitlani.
