June Yee Felix takes the helm of IG as new CEO

IG, the broking behemoth that has moved up through the ranks of spread betting broker, to CFD broker, to mini prime broker to stockbroker, to robowealth manager to whatever comes next…. (payments maybe?) has appointed June Yee Felix as the new CEO.

June Felix replaces the previous CEO Peter Hetherington who stepped down in in September this year. We hope to do a CEO interview in due course.

June has been involved with IG since 2015 as a non executive director of IG Group and previously been President of Verifone Europe and Russia, MD at Citibank as Global Healthcare Citi Enterprise Payments, Global General Manager for the global Banking and Financial Markets industry sector at IBM. As well as consulting roles at Chase Manhattan and CEO of Certco.

Andy Green, Chairman of IG, said:

“The Board is delighted to appoint June Felix as CEO of the Group. She brings to the role over 25 years’ experience in both the finance and digital technology sectors, and she has a deep understanding of our business.

“June has a strong track record in strategy and product innovation and has successfully developed businesses of varying scales in the USA, Asia and Europe. Her broad experience makes her ideally suited to take IG forward.”

June Felix commented:

“I am honoured to be asked to lead a business with such tremendous people and technology and with such a strong client centric culture. The Group’s business is well positioned to continue to successfully navigate the impact of regulatory change and I am excited about working closely with the highly experienced executive team at IG in the continued delivery of that programme.

“Drawing on my experience of financial services firms globally, I look forward to leading the evolution of the Group’s strategy to deliver sustainable growth and attractive shareholder returns.”
