Clive Elms/Equities & Derivatives Trading
Clive grew up in Mombasa and rather aptly began his career on the Coffee floor of the FOX Exchange in London, before moving to dealing futures and options for private clients at GNI, taking a keen interest in the advent of CFDs in the 1990’s during his tenure at Union Discount.
Clive passed his securities exam back in 2000, and joined the Firm soon after and was instrumental in the introduction of CFDs and FX trading to the portfolio of assets available to trade. Clive expanded his knowledge into the world of fixed income as well as equities and commodities to become a valuable all round asset to the team. Clive now has nearly 18 years’ service with the Firm, during which time he has passed his CISI Private Client Investment Advice and Management exam and became a Chartered Fellow of the CISI.
Peter 'PJ' Jennings/Equities & Derivatives Trading

PJ has worked for a range of financial institutions in the square mile, including leading banks such as Bank of America and Credit Agricole, money broker Tullets and commodity house Refco which moved it’s business to MAREX Spectron.
Versatility is one of PJ’s great attributes, and he has reinvented himself a few times to keep at the core of the financial markets. Consequently PJ is as happy to talk about FX as he is commodities or equities.
PJ enjoys meeting the many varied people that his career in finance has allowed him to meet, and has an important role as the unofficial desk Social Secretary!

Vlad, although a native Russian, spent his formative years in the Middle East and so adds to our linguistic skills with his fluent Russian and conversational knowledge of Arabic.
