Collins said: “I am very much looking forward to my new role at SD. These are interesting and challenging times in financial markets and I believe SD has a very valuable set of offerings that help market participants adapt to the new environment.

“My consulting experience will enable me to drill down into the specific requirements of customers’ derivatives businesses and implement SD’s bespoke solutions accordingly.

“My extensive experience in implementing and integrating risk management systems, market data and analytics positions me very well to integrate SD’s advanced multi-asset front office solution with such systems very efficiently.”

David Gershon, CEO of SD, said: “We have seen a growing demand from large institutional clients for large scale implementation of SD’s multi-asset front office system, with full integration to in-house or third party systems.

“We have been developing the expertise required for these large scale projects, and David’s experience in systems implementations and integration will play a key role in taking SD’s offering in this space to the next level.

“David has worked with all kinds of financial institutions, from top tier banks to smaller regional banks and will be an asset to SD’s global strategic sales team. I am delighted that we will be able to benefit from both his exceptional experience and knowledge of the derivatives market and technology and the need for our solutions.”
