Exclusive: ATFX hires Edgewater exec Phil Muldoon as Director Institutional Sales
FNG Exclusive… FNG has learned that ATFX UK (or more formally AT Global Markets UK Limited), the FCA regulated arm of Chinese controlled retail FX broker ATFX, has hired Phil Muldoon as Director – Institutional Sales in London.
The move comes as ATFX continues to transition from a retail to an institutional client focus in the UK.
Phil Muldoon joins ATFX from white label solutions and execution services provider Edgewater Markets, where he had a similar title of Director Institutional Sales for the past four years. He has also worked at National Bank of Abu Dhabi, Credit Agricole, Credit Suisse, Nations Bank, Manufacturers Hanover Trust, and National Westminster Bank.
This actually marks the second recent hire by ATFX from Edgewater Markets in as many months, with the company recently adding Telmo Simoes to head LatAm Institutional Sales, as was also reported exclusively at the time by FNG.
ATFX is controlled by Chinese entrepreneur Hiu Keung (Joe) Li. The group has licensed subsidiaries in the UK (FCA), Cyprus (CySEC), and offshore in Mauritius.
