Susquehanna Heads for Land of the Shamrock
Traders Magazine, November 1999
The birthplace of Jonathan Swift, W. B. Yeats, James Joyce and Samuel Beckett will soon be home to Susquehanna Financial Group's newest trading office. Early next year, the Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania-based broker dealer will open a trading operation in Dublin, Ireland. According to Leslie Murphy, a spokeswoman at the Dublin-based Irish Industrial Development Authority, the desk will primarily trade futures and will be staffed with both U.S. and Irish personnel. The new office will be spearheaded by David Proctor, a managing director at Susquehanna.
"I might get a chance to look up the family ancestral farm in County Mayo," quipped a manager of Irish descent at Susquehanna. Officials at the firm declined, however, to comment on specific details about the Dublin plan.
