LMAX Exchange Group, one of the world’s fastest growing technology companies, has announced the appointment of Quentin Miller to the newly created position of Head of Institutional FX for Asia Pacific, based in Singapore. Quentin will be responsible for growing the LMAX Exchange institutional business in the region and will report to Scott Moffat, the Managing Director for Asia Pacific.

Quentin brings extensive FX industry experience and regional expertise to LMAX Exchange, joining from Standard Chartered where he was Executive Director of eTrading in Singapore. Quentin’s extensive banking and trading career also includes senior roles at Commerzbank, RBS, JP Morgan Chase in Singapore and London.

This appointment further enhances LMAX Exchange distribution capabilities in the institutional client segment and builds upon the already established regional presence, which includes a matching engine in Tokyo (TY3) as well as a sales and operational hub in Hong Kong.

Commenting on the appointment, Scott Moffat, Managing Director Asia Pacific added: “We see a huge opportunity in the region for LMAX Exchange among banks, brokerages, funds and asset managers. Driven by industry initiatives and regulatory reforms, the market is moving towards firm liquidity as clients require transparency, precision and consistency in execution. Furthermore, only trading on a central limit order book with streaming no ‘last look’ liquidity enables institutional investors to have full control of their trading strategies and their execution costs. Given such growth potential for LMAX Exchange in the industry, Quentin’s wealth of experience of the regional institutional marketplace will be a major asset for our growth in Asia Pacific.”
