SIX Telekurs Continues to Expand its Evaluated Pricing Team

SIX Telekurs continues to build up its core team of experts to further expand its Evaluated Pricing. The business unit has brought five new members on board in the last few months to both develop the service further, and to respond to its popularity amongst customers.

SIX Telekurs has expanded its Evaluated Pricing team in its Zurich headquarters. At the beginning of January the head office welcomed Richard Hofer in a key role as Head of Evaluated Pricing Operations. Richard has an MBA in Innovation Management from the University of Applied Sciences, Bern, and has previously held a number of senior positions in software engineering and management.

SIX Telekurs has also brought in four new hires to its Stamford, US office, Chris Chun Ma, Ben Binxiang Qin, Jun Xu and Dustin Cline.

Chris and Ben have joined the Valuations team as Quantitative Analysts. Chris has an MSc Finance from George Washington University and most recently worked in portfolio analysis and asset allocation for AXA Advisors. Ben has Masters Degrees in Finance from Harvard University and Computer Science from Bridgewater State University, Boston, and has worked as a Quantitative Analyst at Great Plains Energy and Northern Stone Capital Management.

Jun has joined the US-based development team as a Senior Programmer Analyst and will be dedicated to Evaluated Pricing projects. He most recently worked for Risk Resources as a Quantitative Risk Programmer.

Dustin joins the US Product Development team as the Evaluated Pricing Consultant for the Americas. He has an MBA in Finance from Washburn University, KS, and has worked as a valuation specialist for JP Morgan Chase and BNY Mellon.

Bruno Burlon, Global Head of SIX Telekurs Evaluated Pricing says “We are very pleased to welcome our new colleagues to the Evaluated Pricing team. We have made great progress in developing our service over the last year and have significantly expanded coverage and staffing in response to client demand. Evaluated Pricing is a strategic initiative in SIX Telekurs and we expect to develop our offering further over the next few years.”
