Lutnick praised Jain’s “vast knowledge and experience across the entire global financial footprint” in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

He said: “He’s my partner at the parent company, so his roles are very much vision, direction and then helping build the teams to execute. It’s not an operating role.”
