Interdealer broker GFI Group is strengthening its emerging markets foreign exchange options desk with the addition of two senior brokers in London.
Adam Sonin is joining from ACM/GFI's wet freight derivatives business, which he has managed since its inception in 2002 and Mark Gallagher is moving over from GFI's G10 exotics desk. Both positions are newly created and take effect in the new year.
A spokesperson says emerging markets FX options is an important growth area for the company. “They are senior additions to the desk and reflect GFI's ambitions in this market,” the spokesperson says.
Both Sonin and Gallagher will report to Julian Swain, head of London brokerage at GFI.
