Hugo Jenkins has been involved in the futures industry for over 30 years. Having started his career at Merrill Lynch in London, he spent time at GNI and the London International Financial Futures Exchange, Liffe, followed by 15 years as Managing Director at FOA providing a voice for the European futures industry.
Throughout his tenure at FOA, Hugo’s focus was always on the provision of practical, cost-effective solutions to the challenges faced by the industry resulting in such services as the FOA’s Terms of Business documentation and associated legal opinions. He managed and steered countless working groups and committees on compliance, operations and trading issues, producing invaluable guidance to help member firms comply with increasingly complex rules and regulations. Hugo also partnered with colleagues at FIA on joint projects, helping to promote FIA Tech services in Europe and draft joint documentation, and ultimately helped manage the process that delivered FOA’s merger with FIA.
Hugo left FIA in April 2016 and recently joined the market surveillance software provider, Ancoa Software, as a Board Advisor.
