MUFG has appointed Stuart Taylor as Head of Electronic Trading within Global Markets for EMEA, Asia and the Americas, effective 20 November 2020.

This newly created role within MUFG's Securities business will see Stuart lead on consolidating the e-trading strategy and growing the business through the use of electronic trading. This will provide another opportunity for MUFG's Global Markets team to provide best-in-class solutions for clients, ranging from domestic retail and institutional to international corporates, private equity, hedge funds and other financial institutions.

Stuart joins from BGC where he was Global Head of BGC's electronic buy side fixed income division. A recognised market leader, Stuart has been at the forefront of the development of automation of this asset class over the last 20 years. His extensive experience leading strategy and deployment of e-trading capabilities includes founding FinTech firm, Algomi, where he was CEO from 2012-2018. Prior to that, as a Managing Director at UBS, he launched Bond Port, a bond trading auction system that provides deeper liquidity and connectivity to the buy side.

Based in London, Stuart will report to Atif Hayat, Deputy Global Head of Sales and Trading, Global Markets, and will work closely with teams within the front and back office on refining MUFG's data strategy.

Atif Hayat commented:

"Stuart's demonstrated experience and innovative streak makes him a tremendous asset to the team as we expand our product offering.

"I look forward to working with him to drive MUFG's electronic trading strategy, which puts our clients and their needs first and foremost by helping them to meet their execution goals. This, in turn, increases our operational efficiency and strength in this area."
