FlexTrade has expanded staff levels at its Paris office.
FlexTrade has appointed Rushani Caiola as fixed income account manager and three new technical analysts within the company’s implementation and client services support teams for fixed income and FX.
The company attributes its new hires to an increased demand in sales and service for its growing prospect and client base in France.
Caiola comes to FlexTrade from Tradeweb, where she served for nearly four years as vice president of buy side electronic trading sales handling the French market. Prior to that, Caiola spent over four years at Credit Agricole, working in both the New York and Paris offices.
Manuela Bauer, sales director Europe at FlexTrade, comments: “FlexTrade has had an incredible reception in France, and our fast-growing client base in Paris communicated a wish for local support. The Paris office will enable us to strengthen our partnership with French asset managers and cater to their evolving technology needs, which has expanded beyond equities into other asset classes, such as FX and fixed income.”
Bauer continues: “Adding the recently recruited technical analysts with backgrounds across asset classes in equity, fixed income and FX – was very important for us since most asset managers are no longer in an “equity-centric” mindset.”
