Two senior brokers from Affinity (Shipping) are joining the crush of new hires at expanding Oil Brokerage.

Affinity said Singapore-based Sydney Ng, who is listed as a company director working on LR2 clean tanker business, has left and is free to join Oil Brokerage immediately.

In addition, London tankers partner and aframax specialist Ashley Cadwallader is also heading to the rival shop after serving three months gardening leave.
