Tom Robinson has left MahiFX to become Managing Director and Head of eFX Sales at Jefferies, FortuneZ can confirm. The industry veteran is joining the company in its latest push towards expanding its electronic foreign exchange trading offering. The acquisition of key talent is confirmation that Jefferies is committed to further investing in this space.
Robinson joins the investment bank after a two year stint at MahiFX, where he was head of sales. Before joining the team of the institutional FX technology company, he held the role of Managing Director and Head of eFX Sales at Goldman Sachs for 8 years.
Robinson’s hire follows a slew of new executive appointments at the electronic foreign exchange unit of Jefferies. The company committed to increasing its investment in the space after on-boarding Brandon Mulvhill from FXCM in March this year.
Following the appointment of Mulvhill to the leadership role for the company’s FX prime broking business, Jefferies hired Anthony Mazzarse from FXCM Pro and former ADS Securities senior executive Bryan Seegers. The latter took on the role of the group’s eFX algo offering.
Following its loan deal with FXCM in January 2015 in the aftermath of the SNB crisis, Jefferies continues to develop its exposure to the FX market space.
