Trading technology provider Fidessa has appointed David Jenkins as business solutions manager for the Asia-Pacific region, based in Hong Kong.
Jenkins will be responsible for client business development, strategic business programmes and the incubation of new business ideas for Fidessa’s sell-side customers in the region.
As well as creating solutions that address clients’ existing and future needs, Jenkins will work to identify business strategies for Fidessa in the Asia-Pacific region.
Before joining Fidessa, Jenkins was principal solutions consultant at Apama, the algorithmic trading and complex event processing division of Progress Software, in Hong Kong.
“David’s appointment continues the expansion of our operations in Asia, which are the direct result of growing client demand across the region,” said Philip Slavin, Fidessa’s head of sell-side product strategy in London, in a statement. “As the awareness and capabilities of electronic and algorithmic trading in Asia-Pacific continue to increase, David will look to assist our clients to leverage Fidessa’s global expertise.”
