Paul Ainsworth, global head of sales at Euronext FX (formerly Fastmatch) in New York, has left after more than four years with the firm. A replacement has not yet been named.
According to Kevin Wolf, CEO of Euronext FX, Ainsworth has decided to “take some downtime out of the market, to spend time with his family, and start a new chapter”.
“We would like to sincerely thank Paul for leading the sales effort, and for helping to shape Euronext FX into what it is today. We wish Paul every success in the future,” Wolf adds.
Ainsworth joined FastMatch in late 2015 from UBS, where he had been an executive
director since 2011. Prior to UBS, Ainsworth spent several years at Barclays, where he was director of e-commerce FX sales, responsible for growing the FX business in the Americas
and focusing on quantitative trading groups and the Barclays FIX product.
Before joining Barclays in October 2007, Ainsworth was at Cantor Fitzgerald and had
also held various positions in FX, equities and fixed income at Credit Lyonnais, GNI and Eurobrokers in London and Asia.
