Our regulation-first approach and institutional-grade infrastructure gives us a competitive edge that we can build on. I’m looking forward to working with a high-performing, visionary team,” Mr. Eldon said.


Mr. Eldon’s appointment follows a number of recent strategic sales appointments at the company, including Alex Phillips as Group Head of Sales, and Malcolm Baker as Head of Group Sales for the European region.
