ACY Securities lures FX veteran Andrew Taylor to join AU business
Sydney-based FX and CFDs broker, ACY Securities has appointed FX industry veteran Andrew Taylor to the post of Managing Director, following a career of over 30 years in the financial industry.
Taylor will serve as a pivotal addition to ACY Securities’ senior leadership team to spearhead its growth in the relevant markets. Prior to landing at the Australian broker, he spent 15 months as General Manager at IC Markets. This was preceded by many other roles at different companies, mostly based out of Sydney.

He was appointed to the role of CEO for the AU office, Royal Financial Trading Pty Ltd, back in 2014. Prior to RFXT, Taylor had been the COO of Invast Financial Services Australia.
Andrew’s career, which dates back to 1991, encompasses other senior roles including a four-year stint at GFT Markets, and as a business director at EasyForex, according to information made public on his Linkedin profile.
With a broad background in various capacities, Taylor’s experience and contacts in the sector will help develop ACY’s brokerage solutions for the APAC region.
