“Throughout his career, Andrew has demonstrated that he is a capable leader with a record for helping clients maximise their performance across asset classes and investment styles,” CEO Christopher Rollins said.
“With experience in equities, derivatives and fixed income products, we are confident that clients will benefit from his insights.”
