Nick Maton joins Alpha FX as MD, Luxembourg
Alpha FX Group plc (AIM: AFX) announces the appointment of Nick Maton as Managing Director, Luxembourg. Nick has over 30 years’ experience in financial services, including managing and growing businesses in the Luxembourg markets, which is an area of strategic importance for the Group.
Having relocated to Luxembourg in 2006, Nick has spent the past 15 years in senior executive positions at J.P. Morgan, HSBC and most recently as Managing Director of Intertrust, Luxembourg. His experience and leadership in the local industry, combined with delivering client-centric solutions, brings the right set of skills and expertise to extend Alpha’s presence to Luxembourg.
Following the launch of Alpha’s alternative banking platform, Alpha announced in October 2021 its intention to open a Luxembourg office to meet growing local demand for its alternative banking solutions. Subject to regulatory approval, the Group expects to fully establish this office later in the year, in order that it has a true local presence and is best positioned to support the needs of its growing client base within the country. Until then, the Group can continue to support its existing clients in Luxembourg by passporting its European regulatory license.
Initially Nick will focus on building and developing commercial partnerships across the alternative investment sector in Luxembourg for the provision of our alternative banking solutions, whilst also supporting our application with Luxembourg’s financial regulator, the CSSF (‘Commision de Surveillance du Secteur Financier’).
