The incoming executive has more than a decade of experience serving in the financial services industry and has held senior-level management roles in several industry-leading financial service providers and tier 1 banking service providers. Some of the most notable roles in his career include – Head of FX night execution desk at COEX Partners Ltd, Director of FX Sales at ANZ, Jefferies and Credit Suisse and he has also served as member of FX Cash Administration Team at State Street. 

Speaking about Marc’s new role at the firm, Wei Qiang Zhang – Managing Director of ATFX UK commented, “ATFX Connect is proud to have a new addition to our dynamic team. Marc Taylor’s proven track record will drive our sales and client relationships even further than before”. Marc is an ideal candidate to lead the firm’s new product in the UK market given the fact that he has spent the last decade based out of London and focused entirely on the UK market. Commenting on his new role at the firm, Marc said, “I am excited to start building on the company’s recent successes, I especially look forward to driving the sales team for the newly developed institutional offering ATFX Connect. With my experience and skill set, I aim to grow the business both in London and globally”.
