“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.”
