Hamburg and Singapore, 20th July 2023 – DIGITEC, the global standard for FX Swaps and NDF pricing and data, today announced the opening of its new office in Singapore, managed by Christopher Johnson.
Christopher Johnson has joined as Head of Asia to lead new business in the region. Christopher has worked in FX sales and trading for more than 25 years. He joined DIGITEC from BNY Mellon in Singapore where he was Head of eFX and G10 Spot Trading for APAC. Previously he worked at LSEG/Refinitiv in Singapore and Switzerland, in FX sales and relationship management. During his career he has also worked at UBS, WestLB, Raiffeisen Switzerland and Credit Suisse.
Part of DIGITEC’s global growth strategy, opening the new office is in response to a growing number of enquiries from banks and trading desks located in Singapore. The office brings DIGITEC closer to its Asia-based bank clients and prospects, and offers access to many regional FX trading hubs.
“With existing bank clients across Asia and a growing number of regional prospects, it is important for DIGITEC to have a presence in Singapore, which is fast becoming Asia’s regional hub for FX,” said Peer Joost, CEO of DIGITEC. “I am delighted to welcome Christopher to our team. He is well known in the FX market and brings extensive experience and senior industry relationships, which will help us to meet our ambitious growth plans for the region.”
“As a previous user of DIGITEC I have seen first-hand the value that D3 and SDF deliver to FX trading desks,” said Christopher Johnson. “With recent product launches like D3 Lite and future new products going live later this year, it is an ideal time to target new clients in Asia and I look forward to expanding our client relationships in the region.”
