TS Imagine hires 100 employees during strong H1 2022

Rick Steves

TS Imagine, the merger between TradingScreen and Imagine Software, has announced senior hires after strong growth during the first half of 2022. 

2022 is the first year that the provider of trading, portfolio, and risk management solutions for capital markets operates as TS Imagine. The firm explained the business expansion was made possible through cross-selling products to existing customers and new client acquisition.

TS Imagine has benefited from the current market dynamic which shows preference for multi-asset class trading and investment administration, while meeting enterprise-wide best execution and financial control objectives.

Andrew Morgan, President and Chief Revenue Officer of TS Imagine, said: “We are seeing increased demand from sophisticated investors – from multi-strategy hedge funds to global asset managers – for modern, SaaS-based trading and risk software with multi-asset capabilities. Synergies from our merger have accelerated our growth – generating cross-selling opportunities and expanding strategic alliances.”

TS Imagine hires 100 employees in H1 2022

TS Imagine has over 400 employees in 10 offices worldwide, serving approximately 500 buy-side and sell-side institutions in North and South America, EMEA, and Asia-Pacific, including hedge funds, traditional asset managers, pension funds, mutual funds, and financial institutions.

100 of those 400 employees were hired during the first half of 2022, with the majority in development and data science roles, as well as senior appointments, such as:

Paul Sweeney, Head of Fixed Income Development, who has spent over 20 years in the industry, including roles at IG, UBS, and Credit Suisse.

Puiter Kogan, Global Head of Infrastructure, with another 20 years of experience under his belt, including time at Deutsche Bank, CGI and Hewlett-Packard.

Marina Melnick, Chief Business Development Officer-Eastern Europe, with a 16-year background in technology and development both as a Founder and in leadership roles at Exigen and Luxoft.

Thomas Benevento, Product Management Risk / Margin, who joins TS Imagine after a number of product and business development roles at Deutsche Bank, PrimeOne and S&P Global.

Per Loven, Global Head of Marketing and Alliances, who previously held senior roles at Itiviti, Liquidnet, and SimCorp, and will lead marketing, develop alliances, and support the firm’s global growth.

TS Imagine taps Coinbase Prime liquidity

TS Imagine has connected with Coinbase Prime, the US-based crypto exchange’s prime brokerage arm, to offer institutional clients a fully regulated path to trade cryptocurrencies.

The company offers trading, portfolio and risk management solutions for capital markets and now it allows clients to connect to Coinbase Prime with TradeSmart, an all-asset execution and order management system, and gain significant efficiencies from managing trading and investments in crypto and any other asset class within TS Imagine’s SaaS platform.

The firm boasts two SaaS platforms, TradingScreen and Imagine Software, as part of its integrated trading, portfolio and real-time risk solutions for capital markets.
