Quantifi Opens Australian Office, Appoints Glover to Head

Quantifi, an analytics and risk management solution provider, has opened an office in Sydney, which it says is in response to increasing regional demand. The firm has appointed James Glover as head of APAC sales to manage the Asia Pacific region, including its existing business in Japan.

The Sydney office will focus on product development, deployment and local access for Quantifi’s clients, which include banks, hedge funds, asset management companies and insurance companies. Glover will primarily be responsible for managing the firm’s regional client base and sales efforts, says the vendor.

Rohan Douglas, CEO and founder of Quantifi, says: “This new office puts us closer to many of our clients in the region, enabling us to provide dedicated local resources to support growing demand.”

According to the vendor, Glover has over 15 years experience in front and middle office positions in risk management, IT and credit derivatives trading in Sydney and Europe. He spent four years at Deutsche Bank in London and Sydney, on the collateralised debt obligation (CDO) trading desk. He has also held executive director level positions with UBS and previously worked for NAB, SBNSW and Bain Management Consultants in Boston. He will be reporting directly to Douglas.
