Share article

SuperDerivatives (SD) said today that it has appointed Jacob Matzliah as vice President for Asia Pacific.

“Asia Pacific is a tremendous growth area for SuperDerivatives since there is very high usage of sophisticated derivatives and strong need for cost effective front office systems that can enhance capabilities to participate in these markets, both as a price taker and maker,” said Russel Levi, SD’s global head of sales.

“Jacob has proven expertise and deep experience in delivering effective derivatives solutions. Under his leadership, I am confident that we will be able to expand our team and capabilities to meet growing demand from clients,” continued Levi.

Matzliah will have responsibility for all client services, sales and support for SD in the Asia Pacific region through the company’s offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Mumbai and Sydney.

He has over 15 years of experience in the industry and is a specialist in tailoring and implementing derivatives large-scale, multi-asset solutions to clients in global banking and capital markets.

Matzliah said, “SuperDerivatives is the strongest leader in derivatives valuation and multi-asset front office systems, not only in the provision of data and models for risk management and independent valuation, but in sophisticated solutions that help our clients drive sales. It is an exciting time for us in Asia, and I am delighted to be working with such an excellent team to capture opportunities for our clients and ourselves.”

Matzliah joined SD in 2005 to run sales in Central Europe and moved to Sydney in 2007 to run the company’s growing Australian operations. From Sydney, he was responsible for sales, business development and regional support. Prior to joining SD, Matzliah held various senior positions, including head of sales, with Orange (NASDAQ: PTNR), a US$2.6 billion company and one of the world’s leading mobile phones vendors.
