IS Prime, a UK FCA-regulated Prime of Prime broker, has appointed former Edgewater Markets director Terry Gill to a newly created Institutional Sales role at the company’s Agency Execution team in an effort to develop the line of business.
The company which provides institutional clients with multi-asset execution across Tier 1 aggregated liquidity venues together with Prime Brokerage services has recently announced the addition of NDFs and Forwards to meet the demands of its institutional clients.
Terry Gill has joined the capital markets industry in late 2007 under the wing of Tullett Prebon, where he played the role of FX Money Broker for almost five years. In 2012, he moved into a sales role with Rosenthal Collins Group (RCG) before helping to launch Edgewater Markets in 2013, following the business’ decision to break from RCG.
Raj Sitlani, Managing Partner of IS Prime, said:
“Terry has a strong agency background, great contacts and a proven track recording in growing a global client base. He will be an asset to the firm as we continue to grow our Agency Execution team and broaden our product portfolio for institutional clients.”
Terry Gill commented on the appointment:
“I have been watching the rapid rise of IS Prime since its inception and am excited to have joined such a dynamic and fast-growing firm to play a key role in developing their agency desk. IS Prime’s Agency Execution business has been built out of its thriving Prime of Prime offering, leveraging the firm’s relationships with top-tier banks and its exceptional technology and quant resources. They have a compelling offering for institutional clients.”
Terry Gill will play a leading role in the institutional sales of the company’s Agency Execution service, which provides mid-tier and smaller banks, hedge funds and voice traders with a deep, anonymous, customized liquidity solution with competitively priced liquidity from the major market making banks, non-bank LPs and selected ECNs.
Authorized and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority, the London-based firm is part of ISAM Capital Markets, which includes IS Prime Hong Kong and IS Risk Analytics.
IS Prime works with a number of leading technology partners, including Broadway Technology, Currenex, FastMatch, FlexTrade, Gold-i, Cboe FX, Integral, MetaQuotes, oneZero, Tools For Brokers, Thomson Reuters, and many others.
