Christian Gressel has been appointed to Tradefeedr’s Client Advisory Group. Founded to create a forum to advise Tradefeedr on product development and alignment with industry wide needs, the group comprises a mix of liquidity providers, buy-side clients, and industry experts.
Gressel joins other group members Tim Cartledge (ex NEX), Richard Turner (Insight Investment), Jeremy Smart (XTX), Ian O’Flaherty (ex Deutsche Bank), and Michal Marcek (ex PIMCO).
The firm says Gressel has worked in FX, futures and options for over 20 years, most recently as global head of ETD and FX electronic execution at UBS in London. It adds he has deep domain experience of the FX market structure and algorithmic trading. He previously worked in sales roles at JP Morgan in London and Raiffeisen Zentralbank in Austria.
“Tradefeedr brings the sell-side, buy-side, regional banks, hedge funds, brokers and central banks together on a common and truly independent data layer enabling all market participants to connect, share and analyse their trading data without friction,” says Gressel. “I look forward to helping them further develop and refine their product offering.”
Balraj Bassi, co-founder of Tradefeedr, adds, “Over the past year we have added numerous FX clients and LPs to our network, improving transparency for all parties. Under the direction of the Advisory Group, our goal is to interconnect all liquidity providers, trading platforms and ECNs directly to their clients through an independent unified data API, which negates the need for TCA providers who tend to be owned or operated by the market participants whose liquidity is being assessed.”
