Stephen (42) brings a track record of innovation in the financial markets having been a co-founder and director of Tradepoint, a cross border electronic stock exchange. At Tradepoint, Stephen formulated and led negotiations to implement the first order routing and trading service by an exchange with a leading financial data provider and developed and negotiated proposals which led to Tradepoint becoming the first and only non-US equity exchange to be granted approval to operate in the US.
He subsequently joined virt-x, a joint venture between Tradepoint, the SWX Swiss Exchange and a consortium of global investment banks, which focuses on cross border equity trading in Europe as a director of Business Development.
Stephen will be based in London and report to Harry Temkin, Managing Director of Equities Product Development for Reuters Investment Banking and Brokerage segment.
