Furthermore, Mr. Graham was instrumental in building LSE's international franchise, which significantly outperformed its main competitors.
"Martin will help steer Fineqia's growth within evolving regulation and a rapidly changing global economic and technological landscape. His common sense approach to increase financial markets inclusion and its access to the common man is invaluable to us," said Fineqia's CEO Bundeep Singh Rangar. "There is simply no substitute for cumulated wisdom garnered from years of experience in international financial markets."
