Tora, Asia's leading provider of advanced trading technology and financial services, announced today it has opened an office in Sydney, Australia as part of the company's expansion across the Asia-Pacific.
The office will be headed by Nathan Eason who was appointed Vice President of Sales for Australia. He will oversee client activities and sales initiatives for products including TORA Compass, which delivers advanced trade execution capabilities.
Chris Jenkins, Managing Director, Asia Pacific said, "There has been growing demand in Australia for advanced trading products such as TORA Compass and our other trading solutions. Australia is a huge opportunity as it is one of the region's most important markets and has a sophisticated asset management community. This is a natural step in Tora's growth and a local office will allow us to better service our expanding, local client-base."
Nathan Eason joins Tora from SimCorp, a provider of integrated financial software solutions. Nathan has over 15 years of experience on the buy and sell side as well as the financial technology industry, working in markets including Sydney and London.
"Nathan brings to the role valuable knowledge of Australian financial markets, which will help Tora immensely as we continue to broaden our local client base. His experience, particularly with order management systems, complements Tora's product suite and supports the strategic direction of the company," said Jenkins.
Tora Trading already has offices in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
