Anoushka Rayner: Cobalt is the single-biggest innovation to post-trade FX for 15 years

Anoushka Rayner is joining post-trade technology firm Cobalt as global head of sales and business development.

Rayner, who moves to London for her new position, will be responsible for managing the firm’s commercial relationships and scaling up the business ahead of its launch later this year.

Previously, Rayner worked at Traiana as a global FX sales specialist from 2016, based in New York.

Earlier, she held sales roles at SmartTrade technologies, FXCMPro and City Index. Prior to that she held positions on the FX prop desk at UBS and HSBC at the start of her career in the late 1990s.  

“We are very pleased to welcome Anoushka to our ranks as we work towards re-engineering the largest and most liquid financial market in the world,” says Darren Coote, managing director of Cobalt. “She brings a wealth of experience and contacts to Cobalt, and is a key part of our plans as we prepare to launch later this year.”

“Current post-trade FX service providers and infrastructure are shackled by legacy technology and inefficient processes, which are unfit for purpose,” says Rayner. “This increases costs for market participants and poses significant operational and systemic risk to the FX market.”

“I’m excited to be working for Cobalt as I believe it poses the single-biggest innovation to post-trade FX in the last 15 years, and look forward to playing my part in creating a shared infrastructure that will benefit the entire market,” he adds.
