Rick Steves

TS Imagine has appointed Frederic Villain as Head of Sales for Asia Pacific as the firm looks to expand its trading, portfolio and risk management solutions in the region.

Frederic Villain will be leading TS Imagine’s APAC sales team across its offices in Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo, and will be responsible for growing the business in the region.

He will be integral to bolstering the sales team and expanding TS Imagine in APAC at a time when firms increasingly look to digitize and modernize their legacy trading operations and boost productivity as competition tightens.

Frederic Villain knows the APAC financial services industry inside out

Frederic Villain is an industry veteran with more than 25 years of sales experience in management roles, covering marketing, sales and account management for global financial software vendors.

He joins TS Imagine from Itiviti, where he was Head of Sales, Asia Pacific. Prior to that, he led regional sales in APAC for Bloomberg, Ullink (now part of Itiviti) and SUNGARD (now part of FIS).

Andrew Morgan, President and Chief Revenue Officer of TS Imagine, said: “APAC is an exciting growth area for TS Imagine, as we see strong demand from sophisticated global financial services firms seeking best-in-class SaaS products to digitize their operations in order to mitigate risk and seize trading opportunities. We are thrilled to have Frederic on board, as someone who knows the APAC financial services industry inside out, he is a fantastic asset to the business and will be vital to accelerating our growth in the region.”

The firm has been on a hiring spree, having recently appointed a number of senior executives, including Chief Markets Officer, Spencer Lee, Chief Financial Officer, Kate Peachway, and Chief Marketing Officer, Renee Calabro.

TS Imagine is the result of the merger between top SaaS platforms, TradingScreen and Imagine Software, TS Imagine. The firm delivers integrated trading, portfolio and real-time risk solutions for capital markets to approximately 500 global buy-side and sell-side institutions across North and South America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific including hedge funds, traditional asset managers, pension funds, mutual funds, and financial institutions.

TS Imagine supports crypto via Coinbase Prime

TS Imagine has recently 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.
