“BMLL’s data science capabilities, the depth and breadth of its Level 3, 2 and 1 data are unmatched in the industry. What’s more, its collaboration and distribution partnerships are breaking down the barriers to accessing high-quality historical data for market participants around the world.”

BMLL has welcomed Niall Cameron as a Non-Executive Director (NED) and investor of the provider of detailed historical data and analytics for global financial markets.

Niall Cameron is a renowned industry figure, with a background at leading financial institutions like HSBC, IHS Markit, and ABN Amro. His extensive experience in financial markets, fintech, and data analytics positions him well to guide BMLL’s strategic direction. His role will also involve supporting the company’s growth and product development strategies.

BMLL accelerating global expansion

Cameron’s career includes notable positions such as the Global Head of Digital Markets (EMEA/MENA) at HSBC and the Global Co-Head of Equities, Indices, Commodities, Risk Management, and Economics at IHS Markit. He is also a co-founder of Fintech Connex, aiding companies in their scale-up phase. His experience and expertise are expected to greatly benefit BMLL, especially in areas of strategic planning and market expansion.

The addition of Niall Cameron as a NED and investor comes during a period of significant expansion for BMLL, spurred by a successful Series B funding round that raised $26 million in 2022, with contributions from Factset, Nasdaq Ventures, IQ Capital, and Snowflake Ventures.

Over the past year, BMLL has broadened its data offerings, adding over 30 new datasets from global exchanges, including Japan, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Brazil, Tel Aviv, South Africa, and Canada. The firm also established major distribution partnerships, notably with Snowflake and Exegy, as well as with CCData for its crypto offering.

Moreover, BMLL has extended its global presence, notably in New York, and has increased its team size significantly in both the US and the UK.

“High-quality historical data for market participants”

Niall Cameron said: “I am thrilled to join BMLL as non-executive director. Throughout my career I was fortunate to hold senior executive roles at Markit Group where I learned about the power of financial data. BMLL’s data science capabilities, the depth and breadth of its Level 3, 2 and 1 data are unmatched in the industry. What’s more, its collaboration and distribution partnerships are breaking down the barriers to accessing high-quality historical data for market participants around the world. I look forward to working with the leadership team and the board in supporting BMLL’s growth strategy going forward”.

Paul Humphrey, CEO of BMLL, added: “I am very excited to welcome Niall Cameron as non-executive director and investor to BMLL. Having worked with Niall at ABN Amro and benefitted from his strategic counsel in my career and again in my early days at BMLL, I witnessed his passion for the industry first-hand. His experience at IHS Markit and HSBC will be invaluable for our executive team and in our growth journey. We look forward to working with him as we continue our mission to democratize access to the most granular order book data and help global market participants understand how markets truly behave”.

FIA urges CFTC to regulate use cases rather than AI itself

“We urge the CFTC to refrain from crafting new regulations that generally regulate AI because this approach presents certain well-known pitfalls. By approaching the issue from the perspective of AI as a technology, rather than the use case for the technology, corresponding regulations would likely necessitate a definition of AI. We anticipate that any attempt to properly define AI would be very challenging and require considerable resources.”
