Etrading Hires Senior Execs to Expand Regulatory Data Services

Subscribe to our newsletter

Etrading Software has hired two senior executives to expand its regulatory data services. The company most recently released the Digital Token Identifier, an ISO standard identifier designed to help market participants and public authorities unambiguously identify digital assets.

Joining Etrading are Liz Callaghan as chief strategy officer for regulatory data services, and Catherine Sutcliffe as regulatory affairs director, two newly created roles reporting to CEO Sassan Danesh. Callaghan joins Etrading from ICMA, where she was a senior director and lead on MiFID II and electronic trading practices in secondary markets. Her role at Etrading includes facilitating expansion of the company’s services through the implementation of technology solutions and best practice governance.

Sutcliffe brings a range of regulatory experience to the company, having worked for both ESMA and the UK FCA, as well as holding roles in capital market institutions. She will help Etrading align its expanding services with the needs and policy of public authorities.

This expansion comes off the back of LDC, the private equity arm of Lloyds Banking Group, which made a significant investment in Etrading at the end of last year. The investment will help the company to continue to grow its range of technology-enabled services and expand its offering of data services internationally. Etrading currently has presence in Europe and Asia, with headquarters in London.
