British electronic trading giant CMC Markets today announces the appointment of Andrew Wood as Business Development Manager, Institutional Business, to the company’s Sydney office.

Andrew brings with him 15 years of financial services experience and is regarded as a specialist in the provision of foreign exchange solutions and derivatives products for the institutional sector.

His previous roles included overseeing the Autobahn FX Trader service at Deutsche Bank in London; he then joined Saxo Bank, London as a senior member of the Institutional Sales team before being promoted to Head of Institutional Sales for Saxo Bank Australia.

In his new role with CMC Markets, Andrew will be working closely with institutional clients across the APAC region, offering tailored liquidity solutions and access to CMC’s leading-edge technology and execution services.

Richard Elston, Head of Institutional at CMC Markets, commented: “We are delighted to have recruited Andrew to spearhead our work with institutional businesses across the APAC region. By investing in specialists like Andrew, we ensure that CMC’s clients get the very best out of our Next Generation technology, so we can help them grow their business – and in turn maximise their own revenue potential.”

Andrew will lead the Sydney Institutional Business unit to deliver three specific solutions to the APAC market, those being the Application Program Interface (API) designed to meet the urgent need for reliable liquidity among financial institutions such as broker aggregators, banks, proprietary trading firms and the hedge fund market, as well as the company’s white label market counterparty solution for larger banks and regulated financial institutions and a grey label to mid-to-small sized brokers.
