TP Icap has made two senior appointments in its Data & Analytics division.
Jeff Missimer joins the firm in New York from Bloomberg Polarlake as head of sales Americas, while Rhys Spencer has been promoted to head of sales Asia. The newly-created roles complete the division’s global sales leadership team, joining Lisa Ward, head of sales EMEA, and Jonathan Cooper, global head of sales.
The firm says the new hires support its wider strategy to diversify and grow its revenue streams and client base and that the team’s immediate focus is to assist clients with their risk management and total cost of ownership using Data & Analytics’ new suite of solutions including its Bond Evaluated Price service and Surfix market data API. It adds that Missimer’s experience, notably in the buy-side and energy and commodities space, aligns with Data & Analytics’ ambitions to grow its offering in these areas.
Spencer has been with TP Icap Data & Analytics for over 10 years. Based in Singapore, he will be focused on implementing a talent acquisition strategy to establish a team focused on growing revenue from client segments including asset managers and hedge funds.
“Providing clients with insight from our unique data-led solutions is essential in helping them to make better-informed investment decisions and to meet their regulatory requirements,” says Cooper. “Alongside Lisa, appointing Jeff and Rhys strengthens our global sales coverage, enabling Data & Analytics to better anticipate and meet more of our clients’ needs over time.”
