Alex Mackinnon CEO Finalto Asia, comments,

“We’re delighted Alex is joining Finalto at this exciting moment for the company. With our incredibly strong product offerings in risk management, liquidity, trading and tech, we are making strong inroads in the Asian market and Alex will be a key player in our expansion here.

Alex will grow our Asian business from our Singapore office, where we already have an experienced sales and support team. Alex brings with him huge experience and industry knowledge and is an excellent fit for the Finalto family.

The addition of the Singapore leveraged equities further establishes Finalto as a leader in the Asian market.”
