TP ICAP Group, a leading provider of market infrastructure, today announces the appointment of two senior roles in its Data & Analytics division.
Jeff Missimer joins TP ICAP from Bloomberg Polarlake as Head of Sales Americas, while Rhys Spencer has been promoted to Head of Sales Asia. The newly-created roles complete the division’s global sales leadership team, joining Lisa Ward, Head of Sales EMEA, and Jonathan Cooper, Global Head of Sales.
The new hires support TP ICAP Group’s wider strategy to diversify and grow its revenue streams and client base. The team’s immediate focus is to assist clients with their risk management and total cost of ownership using Data & Analytics’ new suite of solutions including its Bond Evaluated Price service and SURFIX market data API.
Jeff’s vast experience, notably in the buy-side and energy and commodities space, aligns with Data & Analytics’ ambitions to grow its offering in these areas. Based in New York, Jeff brings more than 25 years of experience, his most recent position being Head of Sales Americas at Bloomberg Polarlake.
Rhys has been with TP ICAP Data & Analytics for over 10 years, during which time he has built a deep understanding of the firm’s client base and the Asia Pacific region. Based in Singapore, he will be focused on implementing a talent acquisition strategy to establish a team focused on growing revenue from client segments including asset managers and hedge funds.
Jonathan Cooper, Global Head of Sales at TP ICAP Data & Analytics, said: “Providing clients with insight from our unique data-led solutions is essential in helping them to make better-informed investment decisions and to meet their regulatory requirements. Alongside Lisa, appointing Jeff and Rhys strengthens our global sales coverage, enabling Data & Analytics to better anticipate and meet more of our clients’ needs over time.”
