With has more than 20 years of experience in electronic markets, most recently as Head of EBS at CME Group, Tim Cartledge is a well-respected executive within the FX industry, particularly in data analytics, having already been a member of Tradefeedr’s Client Advisory Group.

Prior to CME Group, he spent 11 years at Barclays Bank, initially founding the BARX FX electronic trading business before ultimately becoming Global Head of FICC Electronic Trading.

He resigned from Barclays in mid-2015, took a few months off, founded Alphaview Limited with his wife and later joined NEX as Head of EBS, Head of FX Product. In late 2018, NEX was acquired by CME Group. He left one year later. Tim Cartledge is also Non Executive Director of 24 Exchange Bermuda.

“I was one of the pioneers using analytics to revolutionise FX trading at banks”

Tim Cartledge, Chief Data Officer at Tradefeedr, said: “Joining and investing in Tradefeedr was an obvious decision for me, having seen the value that clients and Liquidity Providers have for the firm’s trading data and analytics service. In the early 2000s I was one of the pioneers using analytics to revolutionise FX trading at banks, an approach that continued during my time at EBS with the EBS Direct analytics suite. By building a common access layer Tradefeedr has created the next logical step, capturing and normalising data from multiple sources and providing a single analytic lens through which clients across the market can interrogate all their trading.

“Demand for trading data handling and analytics continues to grow, from TCA, to best execution and liquidity management, across the sell-side, buy-side, regional banks, hedge funds, brokers, and central banks. Looking forward I expect trading firms of all sizes to connect to Tradefeedr so that they can focus their trading on data driven decision making.”

Balraj Bassi, Co-Founder of Tradefeedr, said: “We are delighted that Tim has joined Tradefeedr. He brings extensive industry knowledge, and a wealth of senior industry relationships. As FX markets continue to evolve and firms look to get more value from their data, we are adding many new FX clients and LPs to our network, enabling market participants to connect, share and analyse their trading data without friction.”
