Traiana, an ICAP company that provides pre-trade risk and post-trade processing solutions, is appointing Guy Eden as its new head of product development and management. Eden is leaving the London Stock Exchange (LSE), where he had the same role and was responsible for the UnaVista hosted platform for matching, validation and reconciliation, to see if the grass is greener elsewhere.
Guy Eden will have cross-asset responsibility at Triana and report to Igor Teleshevsky, a member of Traiana's executive committee. Prior to working at the LSE he was employed by Ipreo, the investment banking solutions provider, having started his career at SunGard where he rose to become a solutions director.
Commenting on his appointment, Roy Saadon, co-founder of Traiana, said: "We are thrilled to welcome Guy and the expertise that he brings to Traiana. Guy will focus on creating scalable cross-asset processes, in addition to using his deep domain knowledge in the equities space, a key growth market for the company."
Traiana provides global banks, broker/dealers, buy-side firms and trading platforms with services to monitor pre- trade risk and automate post-trade processing of financial transactions in listed and over-the-counter (OTC) trading markets. With the OTC derivatives rule changes coming into place under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and Dodd Frank in the US, Eden can expect to be busy as the European follows the US towards tighter control of derivatives in-line with the wishes of the post-crash 2009 Pittsburgh G20 meeting.
