Published Thursday 26 April, 2012

Pacific Investments, the private investment vehicle of Sir John Beckwith, has announced the launch of Argentex LLP. The company is a foreign exchange specialist providing bespoke advisory and execution services to an international client base of corporates, institutions, government agencies and not-for-profit organisations.

Lord Digby Jones chairs an advisory board, which includes Sir John Beckwith, founder of Pacific Investments plc and Jim Pettigrew, former CFO of ICAP plc and non-executive director of Hermes. The Argentex team has over 70 years' experience in financial services and draws on the foreign exchange expertise of founding Chief Executive and Managing Director Carl Jani and Harry Adams.

Lord Jones said, "I am delighted to accept the position of Chairman of the Advisory Board of Argentex LLP. Carl Jani and Harry Adams have come together to play their part in continuing to show the world that London is still the global financial centre; the only way to deal with the doom-mongers & capitalism-deniers who effect to say it doesn't matter if the financial community stays in London or not is to support the skilled, experienced expertise of firms like Argentex LLP and enjoy watching them flourish."
