abdelaziz Fathi

Chicago-based Trading Technologies International, Inc., a global provider of high-performance trading solutions, announced today it has expanded its senior management team to lead its business in London.

Nick Garrow, a 20-year capital markets and prime brokerage veteran, has been appointed EVP Multi-Asset & Buy Side. In his newly-created role, the London-based industry veteran will lead TT’s expansion into new asset classes beyond exchange-traded derivatives and a range of new services for the buy-side community. He reports to TT CEO Keith Todd and joins the firm’s leadership team.

Prior to taking the new position, Garrow was most recently global head of IT and operations for Societe Generale (SG) Prime Services. His career also encompasses senior roles with the Paris-based futures exchange Euronext and more than a six-year term as a head of sales for trading software firm Patsystems.

Earlier in his career, Garrow joined futures commission merchant (FCM) Calyon Financial as European Head of Electronic Trading Sales. In 2009, he was promoted to Global Head of Electronic Trading Technology for Newedge, the multi-asset FCM created by the merger of Calyon Financial and FIMAT. In that role, he led a significant overhaul of the firm’s electronic trading platforms across exchange-traded derivatives, equities, FX and fixed income.

TT platform operates through SaaS delivery model

The new appointment helps position the company to leverage its technology leadership in key growth markets. It also strengthens TT’s presence in Europe, improving its flagship TT® platform’s accessibility and providing users with regional resiliency and enhanced performance.

The TT platform provides market access and trade execution through the software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery model. In addition, the solution provides access to major international exchanges and liquidity platforms.

The platform already serves a wide variety of users, including proprietary traders, brokers, money managers, CTAs, hedge funds, and commercial hedgers, and risk managers.

Announcing the appointment, TT CEO Keith Todd said: “We’re thrilled to have Nick join us at this very exciting time as we build on the strength of our technology and seek to expand our offering through partnerships, acquisitions and organic enhancements to our platform. He is already contributing a wealth of ideas based on his experience as both a seller into the market and discerning consumer of services. Nick brings passion, vision, leadership, and tremendous talent and knowledge to this important management role.”

Garrow added: “TT has always been at the forefront of innovation in this industry. The delivery of the new SaaS platform, combined with the ambition, independence and investment that 7RIDGE brings, puts TT in an ideal position to expand its range of services and solutions. I’ve known Keith and many of the extremely talented people at TT for many years. I am proud to join the team and convinced that TT will be a driving force in bringing to market the most compelling multi-asset trading solution that our customers seek.”
