LiquidityBook adds to EMEA client services team

RELATED TOPICS​

LiquidityBook has appointed Nicholas Thompson (pictured), as Manager, Client Services – EMEA, on the back of increased demand for the POEMS (portfolio, order and execution management system) platform from European fund managers.

Thompson (pictured) will be responsible for leading the firm’s London team and overseeing all service and deployment aspects for its expanding client base in the region. The appointment comes just a month after LiquidityBook tapped Les Vital to lead its Technical Sales team.
 
Thompson joins from Eze Software Group, where he was Senior Client Engagement Manager for EMEA and was responsible for product implementation across the region. Prior to his time at Eze he served as Senior Portfolio Services Analyst for Fidelity Worldwide Investments, and before that he was a trader at Thurleigh Investment Managers in London. Mr. Thompson is a graduate of the University of Warwick.
 
LiquidityBook has supported the trading of European instruments since 2010 and opened its London office in 2014. The firm has seen rapid growth in the region over the last several years as buy side clients in Europe are increasingly turning to LiquidityBook to help meet their MiFID II compliance requirements as well as reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) for their front to middle office trading and compliance platforms. The vast majority of the firm’s growth has been the replacement of legacy technology platforms, with clients instead moving to single source code, SaaS-delivered solutions to meet their OMS/PMS and Global FIX connectivity needs.
 
Sullivan says: “Our business has grown considerably over the last few years, and nowhere is that more apparent than in London. European fund managers are finding great value in our full featured, low TCO POEMS platform as it not only helps bring greater efficiency to their trading workflows, but also allows them to comply with many of MiFID II’s new rules in a simple, cost-effective manner. Given his background, Nick intimately understands the challenges buy side trading desks face and how technologies like ours can alleviate them. He’s the ideal choice to help us build out our European business, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the team.”
