Johan Koo joins 26 Degrees as Director, Head of Prime Services APAC

26 Degrees Global Markets is pleased to announce the appointment of Johan Koo as Director, Head of Prime Services APAC (ex. Japan) effective immediately.

Johan is an experienced professional with a great depth of knowledge in institutional sales and trading execution. Koo joins 26 Degrees from CMC Markets Connect, where he was a key member of the APAC and Canada institutional sales team.

Prior to this, he held roles as Institutional Business Manager and Head of Trading at several prominent retail brokers in Australia. In these roles, Koo took ownership of dealing and trading execution while also managing a portfolio of clients and monitoring team KPI’s.

Johan’s skillset and breadth of experience is a natural fit for the 26 Degrees Prime Services team. His strong background in employing sales and trading skills across a range of financial products will allow us to continue to offer best-in-class solutions.

Johan (pictured above) comments, “I’m very excited to join and to be given the opportunity to be a part of the 26 Degrees team. I look forward to working closely with the team to deliver a high level of customer service to our customers and to help the company expand into new markets.”

Johan’s appointment follows the global prime brokerage’s expansion of their product range, earlier this year.

“We are excited to have Johan join the team. I have been impressed with the universally positive feedback I have heard about Johan from both our clients and peers in the markets. We have several distinct advantages in the current environment that I know he will be able to leverage as well as expanding our presence across the broader APAC region. It’s a great opportunity for Johan and for 26 Degrees as a business,”
