It is exciting to be joining a successful and talented sales force. Together, I am sure we are going to provide excellent service to current and new clients."
"SuperDerivatives is in a superior position to capitalize on some of the most dominant market trends such as the immense growth in derivative trading volume and the demand for more accuracy and transparency by regulators and investors. SuperDerivatives' award winning products and advanced technology in areas such as portfolio revaluation, risk management and front-office productivity should enable my team and myself to further expand our success in markets around the world," Levi concluded.
