James Robson - CEO
James set up FX-Match in 2010. He struggled to get a fair and transparent rate for 60,000 EUR he needed converted back into GBP. When he realised there wasn’t a single company out there who showed the mid-market rate, the idea for FX-Match was born. Now, he oversees the expansion of the business from a niche Scottish player to a national (and shortly international) platform. With nearly 20 years of experience in the financial services sector James is also the CEO for RM Capital Markets, a leading fixed income brokerage based in Edinburgh. James lives in rural Berwickshire with his family.
