Chi-X Europe, the pan-European multilateral trading facility (MTF), has added to its management team in preparation for the venue’s next stage of expansion.
“The appointments will make sure we have the right resources to deal with the growth of the platform and any challenges as they present themselves,” Peter Randall, CEO, Chi-X, told theTRADEnews.com.
Denzil Jenkins joins as director of regulation, having previously managed wholesale investment banking supervision projects at the UK’s Financial Services Authority. He was also responsible for the regulator’s team that supervised equity exchanges and MTFs, both before and after the implementation of MiFID.
“Denzil’s appointment stems from the ever increasing interest from European and national regulators,” said Randall. “Ensuring we operate a fair and orderly market means we have to be ahead of the game when it comes to market surveillance.”
Meanwhile, Florian Miciu, whose last role was at rival MTF Turquoise, has been appointed head of technology. His main focus will be on technology deployment and development. He has over 15 years’ experience building technology products, including electronic trading systems for equities and government debt for capital markets institutions. Miciu spent
ten years at investment bank Credit Suisse.
“Florian brings a wealth of experience as a technologist and can help us address the challenges of growing a small and entrepreneurial business,” added Randall. “He is well equipped to deal with any complexities that may come to the fore as Chi-X continues to grow and to ensure that we continue to innovate to benefit our clients.”
