London-based FX company TradeNext has appointed FX sales executive Larry De Souza as Director of Sales and Trading.
Mr. De Souza joined the firm recently, bringing with him approximately twenty years of experience across a broad spectrum of international senior level positions for large institutions.
Having spent four years as Vice President of Spot FX at Credit Lyonnais in the late 1990s, Mr. De Souza subsequently joined Solarus Capital as Managing Director and Head Trader before moving to Banco Itau, where his role as Senior FX Trader on the bank’s proprietary trading desk took him into various asset classes.
After a contract sales position at Lloyds TSB involving Spot FX, Forward Swap, Outright and options to Global Financial Institutions and Corporates, Mr. De Souza headed FlexTrade’s UK-based EMEA sales team for three years, before assuming the position of Head of Institutional Sales EMEA at middle-eastern brokerage ADS Securities.
For one year prior to joining TradeNext, Mr. De Souza provided consultancy services which identified trading, connectivity and overall business synergy between institutional clients and Liquidity/Technology Providers in Spot FX and Precious Metals Globally, as well as introducing broker services.
TradeNext has concentrated its efforts on accruing a client base within the Indian subcontinent whilst operating its business from its FCA-regulated facility in London. Mr. De Souza’s wealth of international FX experience is likely to be a considerable asset to the firm.
