“Gregg has a long and respected track record working with the global listed derivatives community and his expertise will help us further build on the successful expansion of FIA Tech’s product portfolio.”

FIA Tech has appointed Gregg Whitbread to the newly created role of Senior Manager, Global Product Sales, of the futures trading technology provider.

Based in London and reporting to FIA Tech’s Head of Business Development, Andrew La Manna, the new executive will be focused on building out the sales of FIA Tech’s Databank offering to buyside institutions across Europe.

“Long and respected track record working with the global listed derivatives community”

Andrew La Manna, Head of Business Development, said: “We are thrilled to expand our sales capability in Europe, with the addition of such an experienced industry leader. Gregg has a long and respected track record working with the global listed derivatives community and his expertise will help us further build on the successful expansion of FIA Tech’s product portfolio.”

Gregg Whitbread joins FIA Tech from Euromoney TRADEDATA, where he has spent the last 27 years building out the reference data product offering and sales. His experience within exchange traded derivatives spans reference data, operations and technology.

He left Euromoney in February 2023 after most recently holding the positions of Business Development Director and Global Head of Business Development at the trade data division.

Gregg Whitbread departs Euromoney following new ownership and rebranding

Whitbread’s departure from Euromoney coincides with the firm’s rebranding to Delinian, a trade name that consists of Euromoney’s specialist brands serving the financial and professional services and asset management industries. There will not be brand or name changes for any customer-facing products. The Fastmarkets brand is not changing and will continue to be used by that business.

The rebranding to Delinian came on the heels of the acquisition of Euromoney, a B2B information-services business in November 2022 by funds managed by Astorg and Epiris, the latter being a private equity firm based in London which is also invested in AXIO, a group of seven data, information and events businesses based in North America, Europe and Asia.

The Group will be separated into two businesses with Fastmarkets becoming a stand-alone entity, owned and controlled by Astorg, with the Delinian businesses operating under the majority ownership and control of Epiris.

Delinian, fka Euromoney, is a portfolio of 20 information services businesses providing critical industry information to customers in over 140 countries. The company’s many brands are popular go-to sources for critical data and expert insights and are deeply embedded in clients’ workflows.

Delinian has customers in more than 140 countries and over 2,200 employees located in North America, South America, Europe and Asia, who tap into its 20 brands for their actionable data, analysis, intelligence, and access to markets.

FIA Tech’s Databank Network onboarded Trading Technologies and CQG as vendors

FIA Tech has been expanding its Databank Network, which brings together independent software vendors (ISVs), exchanges, clearing houses and other data providers into an interoperable global network simplifying the use of reference data, analytics and software solutions from participating firms.

The Databank Network has recently welcomed Trading Technologies and CQG to the list of independent software vendors in order to give its customers ready access to the industry services provided by FIA Tech.

The network unifies reference data from over 80 exchanges and central counterparties (CCPs), leading index providers including FTSE, MSCI, S&P, STOXX, independent software vendors and data vendors EDI and Factset.
