Webster will lead the company’s efforts to accelerate the pace of Axioma’s market share in Europe and will oversee Axioma’s rapidly growing global indexing initiatives.

“Europe is an important growth market for Axioma, with client demand for our innovative and sophisticated risk analysis tools increasing as the ability to make money becomes ever more challenging,” said Sebastian Ceria, Chief Executive Officer of Axioma. “Ian brings a combination of talent and experience to Axioma that will help us both to drive our growth and to strengthen our competitive position in Europe.”

“Withits innovative products and collaborative approach to client relationships,Axioma has grown rapidly in Europe–and I am eager to help accelerate that growth,” said Webster. “Axioma has also opened up a market for a more sophisticated approach to the creation of indices, and I am excited about the opportunity to further develop this space.”
