Torstone Technology, a provider of post-trade securities and derivatives processing, has announced on Thursday the addition of David Pearson to its product team as a product manager.

Pearson is bringing over thirty years of financial markets experience to the London-based company.

Commenting on his new role, Pearson said: “Market Volatility has recently become a key characteristic of capital markets, and there has arguably never been a more interesting time to bring new digital solutions to the post-trade industry. I am excited to join Torstone and its talented team to help further evolve its leading cloud platform, helping firms to move away from legacy systems and future-proof their operations.”

A veteran in the post-trade

He is joining Torstone from Genesis Global, where he was responsible for post-trade workflow solutions. Before that, he spent twenty-five years at Fidessa. There he initially worked with sell-side brokers and dealers, building and implementing front and middle-office workflow solutions for equities. Later, he worked with Buy-Side firms to challenge the status quo in other asset classes including exchange-traded derivatives and repo.

He parted from Fidessa as the head of post-trade.

He is an expert in workflow and automation in the front office and post-trade space and is a former co-chair of the FIX Trading Community’s Global Post Trade Working Group.

“We are delighted to have David join our team. As we continue to invest in building our global leadership team and extending our platform capabilities into new markets, David’s deep post-trade product and industry experience, and specific expertise in middle-office solutions, will be an asset,” Brian Collings, CEO of Torstone Technology, said.
