May 04, 2022 - LiquidityFinder has learnt that market veteran John Bogue will be joining Digital Assets firm The Menai Financial Group as Head of Post Trade in the Menai Markets division this month. John will be primarily working from Menai's new 100 Liverpool Street location in the City of London. He joins recent FX market hire Kevin Gillespie at the firm.

John brings over 30 years of FX market experience in trading, prime brokerage, and e-brokerage, with experience gained at NatWest Markets plc (RBS) & the now Euronext FX institutional FX trading venue, formerly known as FastMatch.

Founded in 2020 by ex-senior Morgan Stanley executive Zoe Cruz, Menai Financial Group provides institutional-grade digital asset investment products, market-making services and infrastructure for the digital asset space. The company was founded with the mission 'to bridge the traditional world of finance and the new world of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency'.

Menai operates two primary businesses: Menai Finance, an asset management platform with investment products that offer sophisticated investors holistic, risk-adjusted exposure to the digital asset space, and Menai Markets, a market making platform, that are targeted to institutional clients and customers.

In January, MSCI announced a strategic alliance with Menai Financial Group marking one of MSCI’s first collaborations in the digital asset space. The alliance will entail Menai providing advice to MSCI in connection with its development of digital asset solutions for institutional investors.
