TraditionDATA continues global expansion with nine strategic appointments

TraditionDATA, the data and information services division of Compagnie Financière Tradition (Tradition), has made nine strategic appointments as demand for its smaller, granular market data packages grows globally. 

The firm has hired four business development managers, a Commodity Product Manager and a Global Marketing Manager all based in London, alongside three new roles in its U.S. team as part of its continued global growth plans. 

Federica Ferretti, a fixed income expert who previously had stints at JB Drax Honoré and Deutsche Bank, Daria Graesli, formerly of Morningstar and Bloomberg, Riley Frost, who previously worked at Global Reach Group and Currencies Direct and Jamie Vandome, formerly of Sterlex, all join as business development managers based in London. Their role is to continue to grow the firm’s business across the EMEA region. 

Francesca Marrone, formerly of Bloomberg and Citi, and Lexa Palfrey, formerly of Weatherbys Private Bank and the Financial Services Young Marketer of the Year 2020/2021, also joined the firm’s London team as Commodity Product Manager and Global Marketing Manager respectively. 

In the US, Chris Demaso, who previously worked for Bloomberg and Deutsche Börse, Sal Provenzano, formerly of GTX, ABN Amro & Pru Bache and Raffaele Illiano, an experienced structured products expert who worked at Bloomberg and Fitch Ratings, all joined the TraditionDATA team in New York as business development managers focused on servicing the expanding interest in the Tradition financial data product suite. 

So far in 2022, TraditionDATA has continued to build and publish over 135 new Interest Rate Derivative (IRD) curves and over 6,600 instruments. This augments the 30,000+ new interest rate derivatives instruments already published by TraditionDATA, with more constantly being developed in line with client demand. 

The firm has also grown its FX offering from around 2,500 instruments to over 12,000 as a result of an enhanced FX analytics product that will be relaunched later this year. 

These nine appointments demonstrate an ongoing dedication to investing in the growth of TraditionDATA, enabling it to expand its offering to clients. With these latest expansions, the firm will continue to develop innovative, high quality and flexible data products and deliver them to clients across the globe. 

Scott Fitzpatrick, CEO at TraditionDATA, commented: “In response to growing demand for our flexible market data offering, we’ve hired top talent from leading institutions continuing our expansion across the globe. Each person brings a wealth of experience and expertise from a range of backgrounds and a passion for modernising the market data industry. This investment is testament to our commitment of delivering the best possible service to our clients and making it easy to buy and consume in a way that wasn't previously possible for a broad section of the market.”
