Ideal Prediction adds two to advisory board
Ideal Prediction (Ideal), a trading analysis and data science company for the capital markets, has appointed Jonathan Fieldman and Geoff Jones to its Advisory Board.
Fieldman says: “Having spent the past 16 years at Broadway Technology leading the transformation of FICC electronic trading, I have witnessed the need for increased assurance and attestation to ethical behaviour.
