Roland Schwinn Leaves Eurex

Roland Schwinn, regional head for Asia at Eurex, has decided to resign for personal reasons as of 31 August.

“I thank Roland very much for his excellent work and commitment to our business”, says Eurex CEO Thomas Book, who is also Executive Board Member of Deutsche Börse Group. “He contributed significantly to Eurex’ success and growth in Asia, being a highly valued contact for our clients, regulators and Eurex colleagues all over the world.”

Roland was instrumental in developing Eurex’ Asia business over the past 12 years. He obtained regulatory licenses for Eurex in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan and Australia to directly connect exchange members. To date, this has attracted more than 40 Eurex Trading Members. Furthermore, he established the exchange‘s offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Beijing and Tokyo. Based on this presence, Eurex has been able to significantly grow its Asian business; today it is a major strategic component for Deutsche Börse Group.

Going forward, Eurex will build on this success with the planned extension of trading hours that will support Asian investors in meeting their trading and hedging needs.
