Shift Forex LLC has tapped industry veteran Paul Inkster to lead its London-based consulting and sales efforts. He brings nearly 30 years’ experience in FX markets, predominantly broking and trading for several major institutions in the UK.
His most recent experience was gained as a Director at Barclays PLC (LON:BARC) in London, where he had senior management responsibility for retail derivatives including margin FX, and direct involvement in the bank’s largest and most important white label partnerships. He previously held senior positions at Prudential-Bache, Credit Suisse-First Boston, Refco, Marex Financial and Man Financial.
“Paul brings us deep expertise in business development, strategy, product development, marketing and communications across FX, equities, futures and options as well as CFDs and spread betting,” said Matthew Miller, Chief Operating Officer, Shift Forex LLC.
“Paul’s broad and varied experience and extensive network will enable us to better serve our UK and European clients and expand our reach into those key areas as well” concluded Mr. Miller.
Shift Forex is currently working on a number of consulting, marketing, recruiting and acquisition advisory engagements for leading London and European-based financial institutions.
“It is a fascinating time in the foreign exchange markets with significant unprecedented structural changes occurring,” said Mr. Inkster. “For me it is a great time to be working with Shift, a company with a vision and a mission to help clients build successful and sustainable businesses in this space, supporting foreign exchange firms through every stage of their development.”
