“I’m pleased to be joining TORA at an inflection point in the market where there’s a greater awareness of the benefits of the TORA all-in-one model.”

Alex Findlay, Director of Sales at TORA, commented: “I’ve seen in my career just how important technology can be in enabling both buy and sell side institutions to capitalize on changing market dynamics. I’m pleased to be joining TORA at an inflection point in the market where there’s a greater awareness of the benefits of the TORA all-in-one model.”

Chris Jenkins, Managing Director at TORA, said: “As a part of the London Stock Exchange Group, we now have greater reach and capability to help institutions of all sizes benefit from the TORA all-in-one platform. Alex’s years of experience with some of the largest names in finance will be invaluable as we move to accelerate our growth.”
