TradingScreen has launched their secondary FX trading functionality to TradingScreen's multi-asset, global, trading platform and recruited top talent in the foreign exchange field, hiring Jonathan Cooper as Global Head of FX Sales.
Prior to joining TradingScreen, Cooper had a successful career at Bloomberg LP spanning 14 years. During his time at Bloomberg, Cooper acted as the European Head of Emerging Markets. Most recently, he was the European Head of FX Sales and Liquidity, and helped oversee the introduction of eFX products to the companies' global customer base.
"I am very excited to be joining TradingScreen and helping the company expand their FX business," says Jonathan Cooper. "TradingScreen is the only provider in the market that allows traders to trade multi asset under one platform. With my specialized background in foreign exchange, I hope to expand TradingScreen's current expertise in the equities market to the FX market."
"We are delighted to have Jonathan Cooper head the FX practice of TradingScreen," says Philippe Buhannic, the CEO of TradingScreen. "With the launch of the secondary FX trading functionality to TradingScreen's multi-asset, global, trading platform, we aim to satisfy the need for our customers to hedge secondary foreign exchange exposure generated by trading in other asset classes. With the new functionality, end users now have the ability to auto hedge triggered by time, execution or threshold with any of the prime brokers or liquidity providers available on TradeFX."
This latest enhancement is a complementary service to TradingScreen's highly regarded multi-broker platform. In addition to trading Foreign Exchange, clients using TradingScreen have the ability to trade Global Equities, Options, Warrants, Convertible bonds and futures on the same platform.
