As the eFX division of the company has evolved, Mr. Davies has been instrumental in not only assembling the team which maintains a reputation as a pinnacle among London’s giants, and has also grown a global client base of retail brokerages which include some very long established and well recognized firms.

Indeed, Mr. Davies is a reference point for this particular sector of the industry, his extensive knowledge standing him in good stead for this leadership position.

Making a commercial statement on Mr. Davies’ appointment, Michael Overlander, Chief Executive of Sucden Financial stated

“Michael has been instrumental in establishing and growing our e-FX team and his promotion is very much deserved.”

Mr. Davies said of his elevation to Head of eFX Sales EMEA

“Sucden Financial has a great eFX offering, with a 100% STP model, established bank relationships, a strong balance sheet, and over 40 years of experience in the financial markets. We are in a strong position for continued growth and, as part of my new role I plan to continue our focus on emerging markets as well as key territories such as London, where it appears there is a surge in new brokerages establishing themselves.”

FinanceFeeds wishes Mr. Davies great success in leading the eFX division of Sucden Financial.
