About Craig

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile and hopefully you might find something interesting about me and my plan.

My background is in the foreign exchange market, the largest financial market in the world with a daily market turnover of $5.1 trillion.

I have nearly 10 years held as an FX structured options dealer and business development manager. For the last 4 years the market place has contended with margins being driven down and the corporate clients I serve have seen more and more approaches from new start up brokers. Essentially business has become harder to win, keep and make profit from.

The market place is crying out for a change, or better stilt a revolution. My plan is to launch an electronic platform to corporate clients that matches their buying/selling against each other. You need to sell GBP to fund the purchase of EUR to pay your supplier, the platform will match you against another corporate client selling EUR to fund the purchase of GBP. Essentially cutting out the brokers and banks and the margins that are not only expensive for clients but are not transparent.

Because the FX market has no centralised exchange we can offer the mid market price directly to our corporate clients, and we take a percentage of the notional amount traded. There is nothing that exists like this in the market place at the moment and I plan to use this platform to revolutionise the foreign exchange market and build a global company with global profits.

So what or who am I looking for?

My skill sets and experience lie in finance, I need a developer and programmer who can think big and is genuinely excited by the prospect of changing the status quo. Someone to head up the technical side and build a team whilst creating an free thinking and progressive environment.

If this matches your background and ability and sounds exciting, drop me a line and we can talk more about the idea and I can answer any questions you may have.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon,

Craig
