Just days after confirming its intention to expand further into the e-fixed income and credit market with the purchase of Liquidnet, inter-dealer broker TP Icap has unveiled two appointments to its Matchbook Credit platform.
David Everson joins as head of Matchbook Credit EMEA with the task of building out the firm’s portfolio of optimisation products to cover fixed income and emerging markets across EMEA, while Rosie Wood joins as Matchbook sales and liquidity manager. Both are joining from Tradeweb, where Everson was head of Credit Sweep Europe, with responsibility for the day to day running of the European sweep business and projects including Tradeweb’s all-to-all anonymous trading protocol, and a portfolio trading tool for the buy-side. Prior to this he spent 10 years at GFI broking both cash and CDS. Wood, meanwhile, joined from Tradeweb’s trading connectivity and electronic markets business where she held a number of positions, most recently vice president in the Credit business.
“David and Rosie have joined TP Icap to drive further product development and manage the deeper technical integration with our clients in the credit space,” says Mark Russell, chief commercial officer, credit, at TP Icap. “They will grow Matchbook, our risk management solutions business, which was launched to complement our existing credit business and expand the services we offer to our clients.”
