According to Justin Llewellyn-Jones, Global Head of Derivatives at Fidessa, in a recent statement on the appointment, “With a growing number of customers recognizing the value we bring in simplifying their workflows, Fidessa is dedicated to providing them with the advanced execution capabilities they need to operate in today’s highly complex derivatives markets.”
“We’re really pleased to have Paul on board and this strategic hire is further demonstration of our commitment to investing in the highest levels of expertise across our derivatives business,” he added.
“I have always admired Fidessa for its innovative technology, the strength of its front- and middle-office workflow platforms and its talented people.

Fidessa recently made headlines this October when it extended its existing partnership with CIMB Securities (CIMB), an international securities arm of ASEAN’s universal banking groups. The augmented partnership has focused on the provision of regional growth to CIMB’s derivatives trading platform. More specifically, this has included lower latency access to Asian derivatives markets via the group’s colocation capabilities with the SGX.
