FlexTrade, the leading multi-asset execution and order management systems provider, announced that has appointed Manuela Bauer as Multi-Asset Sales Director of the EMEA sales team.

The expansion of FlexTrade’s EMEA sales team comes at the end of a successful year of cross-asset innovation for the business.

In April, the company presented its augmented reality trading technology, FlexAR, at TradeTech Europe.
Manuela Bauer joins FlexTrade from MTS, London Stock Exchange Group’s electronic fixed income trading markets, where she was responsible for buy-side sales in Germany and the Nordics. Prior to joining MTS, she held various positions within London Stock Exchange Group’s Capital Markets division in London and Milan.
In addition to a MSc in Investment Management from Cass Business School, Bauer holds a Bsc in Economics from HEC Lausanne – School of Business and a Bsc in Business Management with First Class Honours from University of Surrey.
