London, 7th July 2021 – The global trading provider INFINOX has announced a major hire as it ramps up its international growth plans.

James Alexander Smith, previously Head of Multi-asset broking at Valbury Capital, will now lead INFINOX’s Exchange-Traded Derivatives and Cash Equity teams.

Based at INFINOX’s London headquarters, James will be responsible for increasing the global reach of the brand’s exchange-traded offering. INFINOX has a presence in 15 countries, and in May opened a major hub in Dubai after its Asian client-base grew by 102% in a year. The expansion comes after the company recorded a 61% jump in revenue and a 28% increase in trading volumes to $553bn in 2020.

Mr Alexander Smith has more than a decade of experience in derivatives, gained in both London and the Middle East. He most recently managed a highly profitable multi-asset desk investing in equity, fixed income and derivatives markets on behalf of HNW individuals and family office clients.

Robert Berkeley, CEO of INFINOX, said: 

"James is already proving a valuable addition to our global team, cementing our position as a world-class multi-asset brokerage.
