LONDON – Intertrader, a provider of spread betting and contracts for difference (CFDs), has fortified its event-driven investments division, Olivetree, with the recent appointments of two Citigroup veterans. David Lackenby and Mark Brodie joined the team on Monday, aiming to invigorate the firm’s strategy with innovative ideas for stakeholders’ benefits.
Lackenby, who has an impressive background with firms such as Cantor Fitzgerald and Market Securities, has taken on the role of Head of Event Driven Sales Trading at Olivetree. Brodie, whose experience spans across notable institutions like Bear Sterns, Jefferies, and BTIG, will serve as an Event Driven Sales Trader. Their combined expertise is expected to significantly enhance Olivetree’s investment strategies.
These appointments come during a transformative year for Intertrader under the leadership of Joe Rundle, who became CEO in March 2023. With over two decades of experience in the FX industry and a track record from ThinkMarkets, OvalX, and Capital.com, Rundle is steering the company towards a more diversified financial landscape.
In another strategic move earlier this year, Louisa Plaice advanced from Head of Marketing to Head of Public Affairs at Intertrader. Her promotion reflects her 15 years of marketing expertise gained at companies including Jane Norman and Equifax (NYSE:) Gap Inc (NYSE:)., bringing valuable insight to her new role.
The strategic enhancements in Intertrader’s leadership team underline the firm’s commitment to adapting and growing within the ever-evolving financial markets. The expertise of the new appointees is poised to contribute substantially to Intertrader’s mission to offer innovative trading solutions to its clientele.
