July 12, 2022 - Independent FX Data Analytics Platform Tradefeedr has announced that Tim Cartledge has joined as Chief Data Officer.

Tim has more than 25 years of experience, working in financial markets and over 20 years in electronic markets. Most recently he was Head of EBS at CME Group. Prior to this he spent 11 years at Barclays Bank, initially founding the BARX FX electronic trading business before ultimately becoming Global Head of FICC Electronic Trading. Tim has significant understanding of market requirements for data analytics, and was previously a member of Tradefeedr’s Client Advisory Group.

Additionally, Alphaview Limited, the family office of Tim and Kate Cartledge, will be making a $1m investment in Tradefeedr and Tim will consequently join the company board.

Tim Cartledge, Tradefeedr's Chief Data Officer, commented on his new appointment and investment in the firm, “Joining and investing in Tradefeedr was an obvious decision for me, having seen the value that clients and Liquidity Providers have for the firm’s trading data and analytics service. In the early 2000s I was one of the pioneers using analytics to revolutionise FX trading at banks, an approach that continued during my time at EBS with the EBS Direct analytics suite. By building a common access layer Tradefeedr has created the next logical step, capturing and normalising data from multiple sources and providing a single analytic lens through which clients across the market can interrogate all their trading”.

He added, “Demand for trading data handling and analytics continues to grow, from TCA, to best execution and liquidity management, across the sell-side, buy-side, regional banks, hedge funds, brokers, and central banks. Looking forward I expect trading firms of all sizes to connect to Tradefeedr so that they can focus their trading on data driven decision making.”

“We are delighted that Tim has joined Tradefeedr. He brings extensive industry knowledge, and a wealth of senior industry relationships,” said Balraj Bassi, Co-Founder of Tradefeedr. “As FX markets continue to evolve and firms look to get more value from their data, we are adding many new FX clients and LPs to our network, enabling market participants to connect, share and analyse their trading data without friction.”
