Falcon Trade Corporation in London has recruited Martin Broadhurst to set up a forfaiting team. Broadhurst was formerly responsible for the global forfaiting activities at Absa Bank in London for the past five years.

Broadhurst has 20 years of experience in the forfaiting market and will build up both origination and secondary market capabilities. Additionally, he will support increasing trade volumes being generated at Falcon from an existing client base.

Before Absa, where Broadhurst spearheaded the bank entry into the forfaiting market, he also worked at DG Bank in London and Oppenheim Forfait in Frankfurt.
