DKK Partners, an emerging markets (EM) foreign exchange (FX) liquidity provider, has appointed former Citi MD Sandip Sen as board advisor to accelerate its global growth.
Sen, who held senior posts at Citi for almost three decades, will oversee DKK’s international expansion, and help develop the company’s FX capabilities and services in emerging markets. DKK, which has been seeing steep growth in volumes and revenues, recently announced the launch of its Ghana operation, headed by entrepreneur Sam Nti.
Sen will also provide strategic direction to the DKK management team as it prepares to announce further office openings across Africa and the Middle East, in addition to its Mayfair headquarters. DKK was founded by capital markets specialist Khalid Talukder, previously of UBS, Citi & Deutsche Bank, and Dominic Duru of RBS and Citi, enabling businesses to manage currency risk in frontier markets.
Khalid Talukder, Co-founder of DKK Partners said, “Following a period of sustained rapid growth, the time is right for DKK to invest in top tier talent to take our business to the next level. Sandip has the experience, tenacity and market knowledge to enable us to continue our high growth trajectory. We are thrilled that such a seasoned industry expert is playing a crucial role in our journey.”
Sandip Sen, Board Advisor, DKK Partners added, “DKK Partners is an incredible business with enormous potential. The team have proven that it is possible to deliver exceptional growth whilst making substantial contributions to charitable causes and giving something back. The company sets the standard in the Frontier Currency space, and I’m very excited to join the team and help the business reach its full potential.”
