Saxo Capital Markets Australia has appointed Adam Smith as its new chief executive officer for the Australian market.
Smith would bring over two decades of experience working in the financial services and technology sectors, and joins the fintech specialist from OFX, an ASX listed financial services/tech company, where he was chief operating officer for over three years.
Prior to this, Smith held senior commercial and operational roles within ANZ Global Markets and Macquarie Bank in Australia and Hong Kong.
CEO of Asia-Pacific, Adam Reynolds, said Smith’s proven track-record and broad experience would make him well-qualified to deliver Saxo’s vision and strategy in Australia.
“We see great opportunities in Australia’s burgeoning fintech scene,” said Reynolds. “Adam’s depth of knowledge will be highly beneficial in driving further innovation and collaboration in the Australian trading and investment community.”
