Targeting hedge funds, banks and real money asset managers, the team will be responsible for executing financial and commodity futures and options, stock options and stock indices, as well as fixed income and foreign exchange.

Heading up the team is Rick Brunton, previously Senior Vice President of Futures and Options Sales at Jefferies Bache.

Graham Bevan spent 9 years at Bache Commodities and 3 years at Jefferies Bache within the Options Sales and Execution Team. He has an established client base including hedge funds, banks and real money accounts. Graham also has a strong knowledge of options and is well known within the options market making community.  Previous tenures include Banca Intesa SPA and Credit Lyonnais Rouse.

Having spent 3 years with Jefferies Bache and 15 years with Bache Commodities, Lee Deavall brings a wealth of experience in executing orders in exchange listed derivatives within the interest rate, equity, FX and commodity markets on behalf of hedge funds, banks and asset managers both electronically and on the floor. 

Marc Bailey, Managing Director at Sucden Financial said, “Having previously worked with Rick, Graham and Lee, I saw an opportunity to use their knowledge and expertise at Sucden Financial to create a new business area providing multi-product execution services for hedge funds, banks and real money asset managers.  The team helps to further grow and diversify the firm’s offering and strengthens our position in the market.”

Rick Brunton, Head of the Multi Product Execution Team said, “We are delighted to be working with Marc Bailey again and to join Sucden Financial, which has a strong and established reputation in the market.
