Prior to this, he was an associate portfolio manager at Balyasny Asset Management where he helped manage a $1 billion technology long/short equity portfolio.

A slew of new appointments at the ‎‎FX unit

The New York-based bank has recently bolstered ‎its foreign exchange business in Europe with the hire of Rob Malin and Dan Hart in London’s e-FX sales.

Malin joined FastMatch from Australia and New Zealand Banking Group, where he had been head of eFX sales for the EMEA region since March 2014. He led the build-out of ANZ’s ‎product for the region and has worked in eFX sales for nearly ten years. ‎Previously, Malin ran an eFX sales team out of Zurich for UBS.

Jefferies Foreign Exchange group offers clients the ability to trade through ‎traditional voice broking methods through its FX centers in New York, London, and ‎Singapore, as well as through flexible e-commerce solutions. ‎

The new hires follow a slew of executive appointments at the ‎electronic foreign exchange unit of Jefferies. The company committed to ‎increasing its investment in the space after on-boarding Bryan Seegers ‎from ADS Securities in 2017.‎
