Gosling brings to icubic over 25 yearsâ banking solutions expertise in the global financial markets. He has held senior sales and sales management positions for a number of well-known global solutions providers, including BIS Banking Systems (now part of Misys), Braid Systems and Wall Street Systems. During his career, Gosling has been responsible for developing and increasing software sales and sales support in Europe, Asia and the US, with annual revenue budgets of up to $20M.
Goslingâs appointment marks icubicâs expansion in size, structure and geographical reach. Gosling will be responsible for introducing iQbonds, icubicâs flagship product to the companyâs growing list of international prospects. iQbonds provides sell-side financial institutions with an end-to-end solution for market making and trading fixed income securities within multiple markets, from a single screen.
Ralf Henke, CEO, icubic AG, says: "Fixed income and bond trading is growing in complexity, with the use of multiple markets and the need to hedge trades against futures or other financial instruments. Thanks to icubicâs dedication to information, innovation and integration, we have seen a growing demand for our leading edge solutions that enable financial institutions to deal with this complexity through the ability to price, quote and trade, quickly and easily, from a single screen."
Henke adds: "Lesâs appointment is crucial to the continued success of icubic outside of our domestic market. It will enable us to deliver high quality, local customer care and support to our global customers."
Speaking about his new role, Les Gosling, managing director and head of international sales, icubic AG, says: "The fixed income markets are moving rapidly towards e-trading. However, many traders are still operating in a less automated environment, comparing like-products over disparate markets, using multiple screens and numerous pricing, quoting and trading systems. icubic has ability and maturity beyond its five years in business. iQbonds provides a cost-effective, integrated solution to enable financial institutions to gain a competitive edge in an increasingly high-speed, performance-driven market. We are already experiencing a substantial level of interest in icubicâs offerings. Now, with an international presence, we look forward to continued success."
