ETX Capital, a UK-based broker firm, has hired Andrea Di Blasio as Head of Quant Trading, who joins the company with around three years of experience in the field. According to the announcement made via LinkedIn, the lead of the broker’s Quant Trading department has been working on the role since April, although it was made official today.

“I analyze data, test and develop new ideas to monitor and improve the overall processes related to the trading ecosystem: pricing, inventory management,  Liquidity   sourcing, hedging strategies, etc.,” Di Blasio stated in the LinkedIn post. Prior to his new role, ETX Capital’s Head of Quant Trading had a short-lived tenure working for three months at FlowBank as a Senior Quant Trading Analyst.

Moreover, Di Blasio earned in EPFL a Master of Science in Computational Science and Engineering, a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Mathematics, and a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematical Engineering.
