Data analytics platform Tradefeedr has announced the addition of Ian O’Flaherty to its advisory board.
O’Flaherty was most recently head of digital solutions and client technology at Westpac, prior to which he had a more than 30-year career in Deutsche Bank’s FX business, including spells as global head of spot FX trading and global head of e-FX sales. O’Flaherty was also inducted into the Profit & Loss FX Hall of Fame in 2019.
The Tradefeedr Advisory Group was formed to help guide product development and O’Flaherty joins a group of industry leaders that includes Richard Turner from Insight Investment, Jeremy Smart from XTX Markets and Tim Cartledge, former head of Barclays’ BARX FX trading platform and most recently global head of OTC FX at CME/NEX Markets.
“I have been closely watching the development of Tradefeedr from inception to where they are today, having built a unified data API to over 16 leading liquidity providers and trading platforms, and recently completing their first investment round,” says O’Flaherty. “I believe the approach Tradefeedr has taken towards building a common, independent data platform for the whole industry could revolutionise data driven dialogue between liquidity providers and their clients. I look forward to providing my insights and guidance to help them in this exciting endeavour.”
Seth Johnson, chairman of TRadefeedr, adds, “I am delighted that Ian has agreed to join our Advisory group. Ian has a wealth of experience, a fantastic network in the FX market and will be a big help to the Tradefeedr business.”
The appointment comes months after Tradefeer announced it had raised $3 million in early-stage financing, to modernise trading analytics workflows.
