He joins from a year at Luma Financial Technologies in New York, where he was seniortechnical product manager. Prior to this he spent just over a year at Bloomberg as a product manager for the firm;s BVAL product, before which he spent almost seven years at Scotia Bank in New York, the last three in US Rates trading. As a pre-sales engineer, Luiu engages with TransFICC clients in product architecture, tech strategy and market structure to define product fit and roadmap.
Nagdimov, meanwhile, has also joined as pre-sales engineer. He comes from a software engineering background, having started his career at TD Securities building software for fixed income teams. He then moved to FinTech start-up DV01 rising to be a technology lead building out APIs, microservices, ETL pipelines, and managing a team of developers for analytics on asset backed securities.
“With six North American clients and a presence in the New York and Chicago data centres, it is important for TransFICC to have a US office,” explains Steve Toland, co-founder of TransFICC. “Sean, Bo-Yun and Khagay will all bring extensive experience and senior industry relationships, which will help TransFICC to engage with new clients in the Americas.”
