Apex Capital Introduction Services will be headed by Managing Director Leah Cox, who has spent over 15 years in financial services and previously worked with Bear Stearns and Deutsche Bank.

Raising new capital is the biggest challenge for most managers and I am very proud that Apex will be playing a key role in helping to bridge their funding gap.”
