Equiti Capital has appointed Stephane Treny to the company’s agency FX desk as a senior FX sales trader. He will be tasked with increasing the firm’s coverage of buy side players in Europe.
Treny has worked in FX sales roles at Deutsche, UBS, Credit Suisse and, most recently, UniCredit where he was director, FX sales for hedges funds and real money. He left UniCredit in October 2019 and is joining Equiti after a brief spell at brokerage firm Avalon Capital Markets.
“We are delighted to welcome Stephane to the desk,” says Benedict Sears, head of Equiti’s FX desk. “His arrival marks the start of the desk’s expansion into the provision of voice execution, macroeconomic analysis, market colour, and trade idea generation. His focus will be to increase Equiti’s coverage of hedge funds and real money.”
Treny adds, “Now, more than ever, the need for voice execution is apparent, especially when dealing with big sizes or sensitive currency pairs. Outsourcing voice execution brings greater flexibility by personalising the way deals are executed. It also facilitates interactions and discussions about market trends, market views and trade ideas.”
Sears says that the firm has also hired Edouard Gabrillagues to the FX desk in a junior role and will “soon announce another senior voice sales hire”.
