FXall General Counsel Jim Sullivan moves to oneZero

oneZero Financial Systems has secured Jim Sullivan as General Counsel to lead the company’s global legal function.

The multi-asset enterprise trading technology solutions provider has been around for more than a decade and has grown to become one of the fintech leaders for the FX industry.

Jim Sullivan’s appointment comes in a period of growth for oneZero. The firm launched its Institutional Hub a year ago and, in September, it has introduced analytics that help clients evaluate the impact of last look.

Experience from JP Morgan, FXall, Policy Making

The new General Counsel of oneZero is a legal veteran with expertise in the FX industry, having joined JP Morgan in 1986 where he remained until 2001, and then moved to FXall which was acquired by LSEG.

At JP Morgan, he served as the transactional corporate/securities counsel, where he represented the internal business incubator division, responsible for spin offs and venture capital matters.

At FXall, he helped to guide the firm as it grew into the leading b2b FX trading platform it is now, with over 1,300 customers.

He has also been instrumental in the design of policy relating to MTFs (multilateral trading facilities) and SEFs (swap execution facilities) by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Foreign Exchange Committee, where he lent his expertise on the matter.

“I’m delighted to be joining the oneZero team at this exciting juncture. The firm has a portfolio of world class proprietary solutions and a rich vein of untapped intellectual potential. As such it is perfectly placed to expand on the impressive achievements to date. I’m looking forward to working with the senior management, stakeholders and all my colleagues to help take the firm to the next level”, said Jim Sullivan, oneZero’s General Counsel.

Andrew Ralich, Co-Founder and CEO of oneZero: “We feel extremely privileged to have Jim join the company. We are very excited to be bringing on a General Counsel with such valuable experience across the Institutional FX space, coupled with a history of working with highly complex systems in both academia and throughout his career. oneZero remains uniquely positioned to handle the scientific complexity of our business as we break new ground with our solutions and in new market segments.”
