Former City Index Chief Operating Officer Simon Bird has this week assumed his new appointment as Managing Partner of Objectivus Financial Consulting in London, a company which provides expertise in the areas of compliance, regulation and risk management through the deployment of market professionals who have a deep understanding of clients’ typical issues from first-hand experience.
Mr. Bird joins the company in this senior executive capacity following five years at recently acquired British CFD and spread betting company City Index, having left the company approximately a year ago.
Bringing with him 27 years of industry experience, Mr. Bird has served in senior leadership positions across three major companies, initially having trained as as an equity market maker and later derivatives specialist.
He moved from proprietary trading at Nat West Markets to Bear Stearns to build a global sales, operations and trading team and then to City Index as Chief Operations Officer.
In Sept 2013 Mr. Bird left City Index and was obliged to take 8 months gardening leave. Since 1999 to the present day he has worked as an Expert Witness for the Enforcement Department of the Financial Conduct Authority, and its predecessor the Financial Services Authority.
