Jai Singh has left his position at wealth management and electronic stock broking company London Stone Securities which  provides investment solutions based on various asset classes, including ETFs and stocks, as well as FX and CFDs, after one year as Head of Equities and Derivatives and just under two years at the firm.

In October last year, Mr. Singh spoke to FinanceFeeds in great detail about the company’s efforts to bring stockbroking to the masses, a factor which has been the focus of many multi-asset electronic trading firms in London recently.

British companies have had an advantageous lead in diversifying to other classes, as they often use proprietary platforms to offer contracts for difference and spread betting, an ideal starting point for bringing other types of OTC contract within the realms of the retail customer. IG Group Holdings plc (LON:IGG) stockbroking platform which headed onto the market last year is a case in point.
