Digital Vega hired Simon Lewis as head of interdealer solutions and Romain Camus as head of exotic options.
Prior to this role, Lewis spent 20 years at Tullett Prebon, building an exotic options desk from scratch and ultimately being appointed as global head of FX options until leaving the firm in 2016.
Camus joins from VTB Group, where he was executive director, head of FX structuring. He previously worked at Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank as a structurer.
“We are very pleased to welcome Simon and Romain to our growing team. They bring extensive domain knowledge, many years of experience working in our core markets, and valuable contacts that will help to fuel our development,“ says Mark Suter, executive chairman and co-founder of Digital Vega. “Digital Vega is already recognised as the leading FX platform for trading vanilla options electronically, and our aim is to build on this success by adding new clients, extending our product coverage to exotics and wealth management solutions, and launching a unique new solution for the Interdealer market.”
“Transparency, regulation and efficiency are driving the evolution of capital markets, and trading firms are increasingly looking to trade more of their FX options online as a result. Digital Vega has already built a strong business and reputation in the dealer-to-client market, and I am really pleased to be able to lead the new interdealer initiative,” says Lewis.
“Joining Digital Vega was an obvious decision for me, as it has an innovative set of products and an impressive client list, which provides a tremendous foundation of success to build upon. Building and delivering an exotics and wealth management platform will capture the growing volumes in this asset class and satisfy client demand for the increased use of electronic trading solutions,” say Camus.
