  • (1888PressRelease) February 14, 2018 - Hampton, who has been with Fomax since 2013, had previously started the company in a low-level administrative position. Through his persistent hard work, unwavering dedication and an uncanny ability to absorb knowledge, he has risen through the ranks at Fomax Capital at an almost meteoric rate.

    Simon will be taken under the wing by Arthur Selby, the firm’s current CTO, who has made the decision to retire to Jersey with his wife and adopted son Sam after 12 years with Fomax Capital.

    James Gooley, the company’s Owner and CEO, released a statement regarding both Mr Selby’s retirement and Mr Hampton’s appointment.

    “It is a day of extremely mixed emotions for both me personally and everyone at Fomax Capital. On one hand, Arthur has been an integral part of our core team here at Fomax, an absolute asset to this firm. His focus and enthusiasm has pulled us through some difficult times over the years, for example in 2008 during the global financial crisis. He was a trusted confidante of my late father Gerald Rossington, the founder of this progressive and innovative financial firm. He will be sorely missed and his absence will be difficult to swallow.”

    “On the other hand, Simon’s progression through the ranks of this company have been impressive to say the least. He has made himself an integral part of our management team and the decision to appoint him as our next Chief Technology Officer is absolutely congruous with our objectives of becoming the leading financial advisory firm in the UK. We have a bright future ahead of us, that I am sure of. Our most recent private client drive has been the most successful in our esteemed history and Simon was extremely influential toward that success. The transition period will be smooth and Arthur has kindly offered to be on hand as proxy for Simon for the foreseeable future. Long may we prosper.”

    Fomax Capital, a UK based internationally recognised management company known for delivering well performing low risk trading strategies through managed accounts is rolling out its highly acclaimed managed trading services to retail private investors for a limited amount of time.
