Top Talent Recruited as TradingScreen Launches Secondary FX Trading to its Multi-Bank TradeFX Platform

TradingScreen today announced the hiring of Jonathan Cooper as Global Head of FX Sales. TradingScreen also announced today the launch of their secondary FX trading functionality to TradingScreen’s multi-asset, global, trading platform.

Prior to joining TradingScreen, Cooper had a successful career at Bloomberg LP spanning 14 years. During his time at Bloomberg, Cooper acted as the European Head of Emerging Markets. Most recently, Cooper was the European Head of FX Sales and Liquidity, where he helped oversee the introduction of eFX products to the companies’ global customer base.

“I am very excited to be joining TradingScreen and helping the company expand their FX practice,” says Jonathan Cooper. “TradingScreen is the only provider in the market that allows traders to trade multi asset under one platform. With my specialized background in FX, I hope to expand TradingScreen’s current expertise in the equities market to the FX market.”

“We are delighted to have Jonathan Cooper head the FX practice of TradingScreen,” says Philippe Buhannic, the CEO of TradingScreen. “With the launch of the secondary FX trading functionality to TradingScreen’s multi-asset, global, trading platform, we aim to satisfy the need for our customers to hedge secondary FX exposure generated by trading in other asset classes. With the new FX functionality, end users now have the ability to auto hedge triggered by time, execution or threshold with any of the prime brokers or liquidity providers available on TradeFX.”

This latest enhancement is a complementary service to TradingScreen's highly regarded multi-broker platform. In addition to trading Foreign Exchange, clients using TradingScreen have the ability to trade Global Equities, Options, Warrants, Convertible bonds and futures on the same platform.
