Derivatives Dex joins Fidessa

Paul Dex has joined Fidessa Group as London-based business development manager EMEA for its derivatives business.

Fidessa notes that Dex brings to Fidessa a wealth of experience in the derivatives markets. He spent 10 years at LIFFE, where he ran the exchange’s global tailor-made education programme before moving on to the CONNECT project and subsequently running LIFFE’s European sales operation.

Later, he headed the front-office execution business for SEB Futures globally and then joined RBS Futures as a sales director followed by a stint as a managing director in financial product development at BNY Mellon.

Justin Llewellyn-Jones, global head of derivatives at Fidessa, said: “With a growing number of customers recognising the value we bring in simplifying their workflows, Fidessa is dedicated to providing them with the advanced execution capabilities they need to operate in today’s highly complex derivatives markets. We’re really pleased to have Paul on board and this strategic hire is further demonstration of our commitment to investing in the highest levels of expertise across our derivatives business.”
