“Making these key hires in London brings us closer to our clients and new prospects, which is key to DIGITEC’s future growth,“ said Peer Joost, COO of DIGITEC. “The first step was to bring in Stephan von Massenbach to open the London office and now we have a team of people with extensive Financial Markets experience to manage relationships, onboard new clients and enhance our range of products.”
“With an experienced new team in London we are able to engage with more clients and capture the market’s demand for automated FX Swaps and NDF trading,” said Stephan von Massenbach, CRO of DIGITEC. “Many of our new employees have cross asset experience and numerous industry relationships, which also helps to enhance our products to include pricing Precious Metals, Interest Rates and Crypto assets.”
