new york

Today marks a new direction in the career of FX industry senior executive Bryan Seegers.

Mr. Seegers, maintaining his foothold among the upper echelons of the institutional electronic trading sector, has been appointed SVP Quant Relationship Management at North American multinational investment bank Jefferies.

Commencing his new position this week, Mr Seegers resumes his illustrious career after having left United Arab Emirates based FX company ADS Securities in May this year.

At that time, FinanceFeeds spoke to Mr Seegers, who held the position of Co-Head of Global eFX Coverage, who had tendered his resignation from the company.

Mr. Seegers is a highly respected senior executive within the institutional sector of the electronic trading industry, who joined ADS Securities in July 2012 as a Senior FX dealer, before moving to head the firm’s eFX Pricing and Execution effort a year later, before being made Director of eFX Pricing and Execution in June 2014, a position that led to his ultimate senior management post with responsibilities relating to relationship management, client services and liquidity management.

Mr. Seegers joined ADS Securities five years ago from Alpari’s US division in New York, having spent two years at the company as Chief Dealer.

Educated at University of Rhode Island’s College of Business Administration, Mr Seegers holds a Batchelor of Science degree in Finance.

Mr. Seegers’ departure is the most recent of a series of exits by senior executives from ADS Securities, including James Watson, Managing Director of the company’s European operations based in London, who last month took up a position as Commercial Advisor to the Board at PayDashboard Ltd.

Speaking to FinanceFeeds last month, Mr. Seegers said “I would like to thank ADS and specifically Nael and Philippe for a great 5 years. In that time I have watched ADS grow into a dominant player in the Brokerage space. I wish them continued success in the years to come.”
