TP ICAP’s information business has appointed two new heads to its sales units in Asia and Sales Americas, naming Jeff Missimer and Rhys Spencer to commence the appointments with immediate effect.
Mr. Rhys originally joined TP ICAP’s Data & Analytics back in 2010. Prior to his aforementioned promotion, he was the head of business development, based out of Singapore, since January 2015. During his 10-year tenure, he has been responsible for managing relationships and growing the customer-base in South East Asia, Hong Kong, and South Korea.
Rhys has also worked in product and technical support roles, demonstrating extensive knowledge of the OTC market data landscape.
In his newest role as head of sales in Asia, he will be focused on implementing the company’s acquisition strategy to capture more buy side users and establish a team focused on growing revenue from client segments, including asset managers and hedge funds.
Jonathan Cooper, Global Head of Sales at TP ICAP Data & Analytics, said: “Providing clients with insight from our unique data-led solutions is essential in helping them to make better-informed investment decisions and to meet their regulatory requirements. Alongside Lisa, appointing Jeff and Rhys strengthens our global sales coverage, enabling Data & Analytics to better anticipate and meet more of our clients’ needs over time.”
Another Newly-Created Role for a Bloomberg Mainstay
Interdealer broker TP ICAP has also onboarded financial markets veteran, Jeff Missimer to the additional role of head of sales Americas. Prior to this position, he had been with Bloomberg for 25 years, having served most recently in a similar role at Bloomberg PolarLake, based in New York. Additionally, Missimer was a product manager in the global markets division of Bloomberg.
Prior to that, he was Americas co-head of fixed income trading sales where he was recruited to rebuild a new business sales team selling an enterprise data and index data management solution to banks and buy-side firms, which was mainly in Canada and the U.S.
TP ICAP, which earns its bread from making markets in different asset classes, employs thousands of brokers that negotiate trades in markets such as FX and commodities.
In 2019, it signed a multi-year deal with Refinitiv to expand its integrated global data across equities, fixed income, FX, derivatives, and commodities.
TP ICAP was established three years ago following Tullett Prebon’s acquisition of the voice-broking business from its former rival interdealer broker ICAP. TP ICAP’s data and analytics division is a provider of real-time price information from the global OTC financial and commodity markets, covering data from the wholesale inter-dealer brokered financial markets.
