Tom Cunningham has extensive experience working on the buy-side in front office technology.

The former chief technology officer at Jupiter Asset Management has joined IHS Markit’s thinkFolio team as its chief operating officer.

Tom Cunningham will lead product management, services and support of the portfolio modelling and order management system business for the buy-side.

He will report into Sprios Giannaros, who recently took over responsibility for the service as global head of thinkFolio and enterprise data management at IHS Markit.
