Tradefeedr, which offers an FX data analytics platform, has strengthened its leadership with the latest hiring of Tim Cartledge as the Chief Data Officer. Previously, he was a member of Tradefeedr’s Client Advisory Group and is now going to join the company’s board.

Furthermore, Alphaview Limited, the family office of Tim and Kate Cartledge, is going to make a $1 million investment into Tradefeedr.

“Joining and investing in Tradefeedr was an obvious decision for me, having seen the value that clients and Liquidity Providers have for the firm’s trading data and analytics service,” Cartledge said.

An Industry Expert

He brings more than 25 years of financial industry experience, out of which over two decades were in the electronic trading industry. He headed CME Group’s EBS and was the Head of FX products in the company for a substantial period.

Moreover, he was a part of Barclays for 11 years and parted in mid-2015 as the Global Head of FICC Electronic Trading. He even founded the bank’s BARX FX electronic trading business and has an extensive understanding of market requirements for data analytics.

Currently, he sits on the board of 24 Exchange as a Non-Executive Director.

“In the early 2000s, I was one of the pioneers using analytics to revolutionize FX trading at banks, an approach that continued during my time at EBS with the EBS Direct analytics suite,” Cartledge added.

“Demand for trading data handling and analytics continues to grow, from TCA, to best execution and liquidity management, across the sell-side, buy-side, regional banks, hedge funds, brokers and central banks. Looking forward, I expect trading firms of all sizes to connect to Tradefeedr so that they can focus their trading on data-driven decision making.”
