Fidessa appoints Robert Thompson president of North American buy-side

Fidessa group, provider of trading, compliance, market data and connectivity solutions for the buy-side and sell-side, has appointed Robert Thompson president of its North American buy-side operations, encompassing the LatentZero front office suite.

Thompson will now act across the Fidessa group in the Americas, where he has been chief operating officer of its sell-side operations for the last 14 years.

Thompson says: “I look forward to bringing my industry expertise to our buy-side business to help drive growth and development in that area, particularly as we continue our investment in the LatentZero product suite. The combination of Fidessa’s buy-side and sell-side operations provides unique benefits to our customers. As we continue to increase the level of integration between the two sides of the business we will seek to enrich the customer experience by adding value, insight and innovation to all of our solutions.”

Paul Nokes, Fidessa’s global buy-side chief executive, says: “Robert brings a wealth of experience from almost 17 years in the Fidessa group covering project management, account management and operations. We believe he is the right person to take our North American buy-side business unit forward from its current position of strength to a new level of maturity.”
