Invast promotes high flyer Nick Briscoe to Managing Director, leading Prime Services division

The sky is the limit! An aerial view of Nick Briscoe’s recent promotion to Managing Director at Invast Global in Sydney, Australia

Prime of Prime brokerage Invast Global has promoted long-standing executive Nick Briscoe to Managing Director, a position in which he will be responsible for leading the company’s Prime Services division across all regions of the world.

Based in Sydney, Australia, the international prime of prime brokerage Invast Global is headed by CEO Gavin White, who was invited to join board of Japanese parent company Invast Securities Co in May last year, three years after joining Invast Global with over thirty years of executive tenure behind him at institutions including Cantor Fitzgerald, Citi, ABN Amro and Barclays Capital spanning across three continents in cities including London, Sydney and Singapore.

Mr Briscoe joined Invast Global at a similar time to Mr White’s appointment as CEO, his initial role being Director of Institutional Sales in June 2015, before being made Head of Prime Services a year later.

His appointment this week as Managing Director signals an elevation for Mr Briscoe, who is a widely respected senior figure on the global stage within the FX industry.

Prior to joining Invast Global in 2015, Mr Briscoe was a Client Advisor at BBY Ltd, which was an Australian stock broking, corporate advisory and asset management firm. Prior to its voluntary administration on 18 May 2015, it claimed to be the largest independent stockbroker in Australia and New Zealand by market share, with a history dating back to its establishment in 1987.

The group provided financial and advisory services to emerging companies and their investors including corporate finance, research, sales & trading, asset management and broker dealer services.

Educated at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Western Australia, Mr Briscoe holds a Batchelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering, from which he graduated in 2008, and also holds a commercial pilot’s license which he attained in 2006 following a two year qualification period, issued by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), which issues the Australian Commercial Pilot Licence.

Thus, Mr Briscoe’s pursuits outside the office involve his skills at the helm of classic fighter aircraft, a fascinating interest that formed the first part of his career, as he was Operations Manager & Commercial Pilot at Fighter Combat International Pty Ltd for four and a half years from 2007.
