For a company like MX, the relations with federal, state and local governments are important and valued highly and hence Miss Hall has been appointed to oversee such initiatives.

Miss Hall was previously with US Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee which she had joined in 2019, and has since been advising on fintech and data governance. So, her network and contact as well as her knowledge of such governance would be of huge value for the company.

Lexi Hall brings a wealth of experience to MX as a data expert and policy advisor for the U.S. Senate Banking Committee and we are thrilled to welcome her to the team,” said Jane Barratt, Chief Advocacy Officer, MX. “Together with Lexi, we will work closely with regulators and policymakers to accelerate the future of open finance through modern connectivity to improve the financial health of millions of Americans.”

Before her role there, she had also worked at Morning Consult, Winston Group and Bain Capital where her different roles as a data analyst and managing director helped her to gain in-depth knowledge of policy and governance.

“Financial health begins with the ability for people to securely access their data. The U.S. is poised for true regulatory innovation in the financial data space and I’m thrilled to be joining the MX team to help drive this innovation,” said Lexi Hall, Director of Public Policy, MX. “Modern connectivity is the foundation of increased innovation in the financial industry and I’m excited to continue the conversation with policymakers and regulators to move the industry forward.”

MX connects more than 16,000 financial institutions to financial data and helps them to make sense of all the raw data that is available around the world into structured datasets so that they would be able to deliver intelligent services which can be utilised by these firms and interpreted into more valuable information.

With more and more data flowing into the markets and other places in recent times, it is necessary for all this data to be collected and processed in the right manner so that the users would be able to make proper sense of the same and can convert it into something that is useful for them. MX provides such kinds of solutions and makes the job of their clients easier.

The Game of Chess Continues – OPEC, China and the Oil Market

Over the past decade, the US has been complaining about the amount of power which the BRIC group, and specifically China, has on the global economy. BRIC stands for Brazil, Russia, India and China; these were the world’s fastest growing economies. Only in the past 10 months, the US has turned their attention toward OPEC due to the prices of fuel. Nevertheless, China seems to have a strong influence even over the price of crude oil.
