Trading analysis and data science provider Ideal Predication has appointed Geoff Jones and Jonathan Fieldman to its advisory board. Jones was previously global head of e-FX and spot trading at RBC Capital Markets, and Fieldman was chief operating officer and chief business development officer at Broadway Technology.
“I’ve collaborated with Jonathan and Geoff on many projects and have first-hand experience of their valuable strategic insight,” says John Crouch, CEO of Ideal Prediction. “They are important additions to Ideal Prediction, as we leverage their expertise in capital markets technology and senior industry relationships.”
Jones adds, “As someone with an acute awareness of the personal risks associated with managing a trading desk I am delighted to be working with the team at Ideal Prediction. Their Scope product uniquely provides organisations with dashboards to support a top-down view of behaviours based on an analysis of client and institutional order flow. With regulators increasingly turning to principles-based regimes, market participants need to consider their behaviours within the front-office. The 50+ years of markets experience at Ideal Prediction allows this to be productised for the first time, for the betterment of FICC markets.”
Meanwhile, 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. With its leadership, depth of knowledge, and proven financial analytics solutions, Ideal Prediction is perfectly positioned to lead the evolution of the supervisory function and first line of defence.”
