TP ICAP names new global broking chief

New global broking chief previously spent 25 years at Société Générale as its global head of trading and global head of sales in its global banking and investor solutions division.

Interdealer broker TP ICAP has appointed a new chief executive officer of its global broking division.

Daniel Fields joins TP ICAP after most recently serving as a partner focused on strategic advisory and capital markets at Altero Capital Partners for the last three years.

Previously in his career, Fields spent 25 years at Société Générale across various roles including as its global head of trading and global head of sales.

In his new role he’ll be responsible for driving “strategic execution” including the roll out of its Fusion platform.

“I’m excited to take the reins at a time of major change, both within the wider markets and within TP ICAP,” said Fields.

“Already, the firm is making great progress advancing its strategy – for example, rolling out its electronic platform, Fusion – and I’m looking forward to working with such a talented team to continue to drive progress so that TP ICAP remains at the forefront of the industry.”

Andrew Polydor, who was running global broking and energy & commodities (E&C) throughout the pandemic, will return to focusing purely on E&C.

Fields’ appointment also follows that of Mark Govoni, who was named chief executive officer of agency execution in April.

“The appointment of Dan as CEO of our Global Broking business is another important strategic hire for TP ICAP as we continue to build out the strength of our leadership team,” said Nicolas Breteau, CEO of TP ICAP, to whom Fields will report.

“His extensive experience in capital markets and strong client relationships position him as the perfect candidate to drive the transformation of global broking. I’d like to thank Andrew for steering the business effectively through the turbulent years of the pandemic and various macro-economic shocks.”
