Digital Vega Appoints Product Heads For Interdealer And Exotic FX Options

Date 12/02/2019

Digital Vega, the leading FX Options e-trading platform and provider of FX Options trading solutions, today announced two senior appointments, which support its expanded product development strategy.

Simon “Benny” Lewis is appointed Head of Interdealer Solutions. Well known to the FX options market as “Benny”, he spent 20 years at Tullet Prebon, building a market leading exotic options desk from scratch. He was ultimately appointed as Global Head of FX Options, until retiring in 2016.

Romain Camus is appointed Head of Exotic Options. He joins from VTB where he was Executive Director, Head of Foreign Exchange Structuring. He previously worked at Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank as a Structurer. Romain has extensive financial markets experience, having spent 15 years working in FX, in addition to roles in both Commodities and Equities.

"We are very pleased to welcome Simon and Romain to our growing team. They bring extensive domain knowledge, many years of experience working in our core markets, and valuable contacts that will help to fuel our development", said Mark Suter, Executive Chairman and Co-Founder, Digital Vega. "Digital Vega is already recognised as the leading FX platform for trading vanilla options electronically, and our aim is to build on this success by adding new clients, extending our product coverage to Exotics and Wealth Management Solutions, and launching a unique new solution for the Interdealer market."

"Transparency, regulation and efficiency are driving the evolution of Capital Markets, and trading firms are increasingly looking to trade more of their FX options online as a result. Digital Vega has already built a strong business and reputation in the Dealer to Client market, and I am really pleased to be able to lead the new Interdealer initiative," said Simon Lewis.

"Joining Digital Vega was an obvious decision for me, as it has an innovative set of products and an impressive client list, which provides a tremendous foundation of success to build upon. Building and delivering an Exotics and Wealth Management platform will capture the growing volumes in this asset class and satisfy client demand for the increased use of electronic trading solutions," said Romain Camus.

To support this expansion, Digital Vega has recently hired 2 new senior developers, will shortly add 2 new salespeople, and has recently moved to new offices in Lombard St in the City of London.
