This is not the first time Mr. Huynh joins the Sydney-based multi-asset prime broker with offices in Tokyo. He first arrived at the company in 2015 to work in the Marketing division.
Invast Global has hired Bao Huynh as Director of Marketing. In his role, he will be responsible for the multi-asset broker’s marketing strategy and supervise all promotional and lead generation efforts.
Huynh has previously worked at Invast Global as Associate Director – Marketing from May 2015 to September 2016. He was hired by Brendan Gunn, Founder and former CEO of The Industry Spread, who was the Invast Global CEO at the time.
The prime broker’s marketing efforts include copy, eDMs, lead generation assets, creative online media. The marketing division also focuses on social media management, relationships with media partners and agencies, marketing planning and budgeting, email marketing campaigns, as well as working with the sales and customer service teams for strategy building.
Bao Huynh now joins Invast Global from Morningstar, where he was Marketing Campaigns Manager for three years. There, he managed cross-channel end-to-end B2B campaigns and communications for Morningstar Australasia.
The multi-asset prime broker has expanded the suite of Index & Commodity CFDs throughout the years. A few of the CFD products available include Cash Oil CFDs; Brent Crude Oil (Cash) and WTI Crude Oil (Cash) as well as a number of Equity Index CFDs, Japan 225 (USD settled), US 2000, Netherlands 25, Swiss 20, India 50 and the Taiwan Index.
The expansion of their offering addresses a shift from their global broker client base as FX volumes have been impacted significantly across the industry in recent years. Access to new products and asset classes is what broker clients demand and that is what Invast Global is offering.
In 2019, the Australia-based prime broker has appointed a new Director for its prime brokerage services. Former Rugby player and commentator Rod Kafer joined the firm after being Managing Director for two of the firms co-founded by him for a total duration of more than 9 years.
Also in 2019, the broker opened a new Hong Kong office in order to address growing client demand in the face of restrictive global financial reforms. The Hong Kong team has a strong understanding of the local landscape.
