David Cooney, CEO of MahiFX said, “One of the keys to a successful e-FX business is trade analysis and support. The technology is the tool we use, but its operation is absolutely key to maximising revenue for our clients.

With our client base growing rapidly we needed to ensure this important function was carried out to the best of our ability to all our clients and we are confident Alex will help achieve this”

During this latter role, Alexander’s role included building automated trading models.. His team consisted of himself and four developers creating trading engines from Alexander’s prototyped models.
