Tourmaline Partners Expands In Sydney
Outsourced trading provider Tourmaline Partners has added Joe Hodgkins as a senior trader in the firm's Sydney office. Hodgkins was most recently at Citigroup, where he oversaw trading as Head of Thai Equities. Prior to his sell-side time, he spent eight years with Janus Capital in Asia, ultimately as Regional Head of Trading for five years. In that role he was responsible for all Asian trading across public equities, derivatives and futures.
“Joe is a natural addition to our deeply experienced Australia team,” said James Santo, Managing Director at Tourmaline in Sydney. “His nearly two decades of experience in Asia-Pacific markets speaks for itself. In addition, his strong TCA background and senior roles on both the buy- and sell-sides are exactly the skills most buy-side firms are looking for when selecting an outsourced trading provider, making him a perfect fit for us at Tourmaline.”
Tourmaline opened its Sydney office in January 2018.
“In just two years, our Australia office has become one of Tourmaline’s biggest success stories,” said Aaron Hantman, Tourmaline’s Chief Executive Officer. “Hiring industry veterans like Joe helps us meet the demand increasingly coming from large asset managers and is emblematic of our ongoing commitment to provide clients unparalleled service and expertise by bringing in talent with vast experience in all aspects of trading.”
Tourmaline’s hiring of Hodgkins follows the appointment of Lincoln Wong as Head of Asia-Pacific Operations in 2019.
