James Dalton, Former Citi Executive, Joins FairXchange as Strategic Advisor

The financial markets data science firm, FairXchange has announced that James Dalton, has joined the company as an advisor on strategy, product development, and sales growth.

His previous experience includes working as Head of FICC Digital National Australia Bank and Head of FX Algorithmic Execution at Citi besides working at State Street as well. He was with Citi for around 16 years during which he was instrumental in building the FX Algo Execution division and also helped sell its products to clients across Asia, Europe, and North America.

Guy Hopkins, Founder, and CEO, FairXchange said:

“We are delighted to welcome James to FairXchange. He has a wealth of sell-side experience, focusing on market micro-structure, trading technology, process automation solutions, and the regulatory oversight that has become core to operating a modern markets platform. His deep knowledge of the market and the needs of its participants, combined with his impressive track record in building market-leading technology businesses are an ideal fit for FairXchange as we continue to grow our team and embark on the next exciting phase of expansion.”

FairXchange’s key lies in the fact that it is not affiliated to any liquidity provider or broker which means that the data that it provides is clean and reliable as well as being top-end. This is very important in today’s age for highly advanced traders who want access to reliable data which they can trust at any point in time.

The company’s analytical product is called Horizon and it provides a platform for the various counterparties to analyse the variety of data and also build their own customised data solutions on top of this data so that they can communicate and make decisions on their own analysis. This improves the decision-making process and leads to better trading opportunities.

James Dalton added:

“I am excited about the opportunity to work with Guy and the rest of the FairXchange team.  They have built a powerful analytical tool which brings concise decision support to FX Liquidity Managers and eSales Teams. Democratising this dataset is crucial for firms seeking to control and expand their electronic franchise.”

The company would be looking towards Mr. Dalton to help in its latest push for sales growth around the world as he brings in a wealth of contacts and goodwill that he would have earned during his time at Citi and other companies as well. This would help the company to expand its footprint as it grows its client base across the world.
