A former floor trader and interbank foreign exchange trader, Kit Lowe is a mainstay in the Sydney trading community. He began his career on the money market desk at Natwest Sydney in the late 1980s, trading the bank’s asset and liability book. There he gained insights on the financial market plumbing, which still hold him in good stead today. Later he ran the bank’s forward FX book before moving to the trading floor as an interest rate trader. More recently, he was a portfolio manager at 70 Capital, and he is now a proprietary trader at Genesis Trading in Sydney. Kit has been using Trading Technologies platforms for nearly 15 years, so it was nice to get his view on the evolution of electronic trading tools. Kit has a nice following on Twitter, so you can catch him there at @kit_lowe.
