Wenman moves from Easy2Trade, the electronic online broker, where he was chief executive.Wenman replaces Roselly Ramseyer-Torres, who the bank said has decided to step down in order to spend more time with her family. The role also makes Wenman co-head of capital markets, and he will report to DrKW’s chief executive Andrew Pisker.
Before his term as chief executive of Easy2Trade, Wenman spent a year, from 1999 to 2000, as managing director of business development at the London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange (Liffe). His early career was spent in Chicago with futures and options trading company O’Connor, which he joined in 1980 and was made a partner of in 1984.
In 1986, Wenman moved to London, where he became head of Europe. Then in 1991, when O’Connor was acquired by Swiss Bank Corporation (SBC), Wenman was made head of global equity options trading in Zurich. In 1992 he was made head of global equity trading and risk, and following SBC’s merger with Warburgs in 1994 he was moved to London as global head of equity trading, where he remained until he moved to Liffe.
