Former Bloomberg sales executive Robert Buxton joins ISPrime in London

After 8 years at Bloomberg, Robert Buxton joins ISPrime in London, responsible for Institutional Sales.

Privately educated Robert Buxton has made a career move into the institutional FX sector this week by joining  ISPrime, the London-based Prime Brokerage headed by Raj Sitlani and Jonathan Brewer that was established by Lord Stanley Fink’s hedge fund company ISAM.

After leaving the prestigious Harrow School in 2001, Mr. Buxton attended Oxford Brookes University where he obtained a Master of Science degree in Business Administration before joining the British Army in February 2003 as a Troop Leader in the Formation Reconnaissance Regiment.

Four and a half years later, Mr. Buxton joined Bloomberg in Analytics and Customer Support in London, where he spent eight years, being promoted to Relationship Manager in 2010 and then once again in April 2013 to Bloomberg’s Tradebook division in which he worked with buy side and sell side institutions to provide customized solutions for liquidity and market insight.

Joining ISPrime this week, Mr. Buxton will be responsible for Institutional Sales, based at the firm’s Baker Street offices.

Jonathan Brewer, Managing Partner at IS Prime today explained to FinanceFeeds “IS Prime is pleased to announce that Robert Buxton has joined the company where he will focus on driving the agency execution business.”

“Robert has 8 years of experience gained within a sales environment at Bloomberg. Latterly he was focused on e-FX Sales to a broad range of clients predominantly across EMEA.”

“As part of our plan to expand our sales capabilities we wanted to hire someone with a very solid history in acquisition sales with a specific focus on agency e-FX execution.”

“Robert has a strong track record gained at Bloomberg Tradebook and his skill set is highly complementary to our existing sales franchise. Raj and I are very pleased to have him on board” concluded Mr. Brewer.
