Almost two months have passed since the demise of London-based retail FX brokerage Tradenext, which terminated its relationship with all retail clients just before its co-owner Jagjit Singh wasarrested in India amid allegations of swindling customers of the Crown Credit Cooperative Society.

The unfortunate byproduct of a company’s demise is the loss of employment by staff through no fault of their own, however Tradenext’s talent is most certainly making waves elsewhere.

The latest example of this is the appointment of former Tradenext Creative Director John Evans as Marketing Director at London’s Citypoint Trading Ltd, an FCA regulated company which offers FX and CFDs.
