Ram Vittal, CEO of Marex North America, was on a panel at FIA Expo 2022 about recent geopolitical events and their effect on the markets. John Lothian News spoke with him following the panel, and he talked about market disruptions, the threat of nuclear war, and Marex’s October acquisition of ED&F Man Capital Markets Limited’s UK business.
William Knottenbelt was interviewed by John Lothian for The History of Financial Futures video series at the FIA EXPO 2022 as he was preparing to leave the CME Group. He joined the CME Group in 2008 after being approached by then CME Executive Bryan Durkin while Knottenbelt was the head of global futures for the Royal Bank of Scotland, which had been taken over by the U.K. government during the financial crisis that year.
TMX Group recently invested in VettaFi, what it described as “a US-based, privately owned data, analytics, indexing, digital distribution, and thought leadership company” and TMX Chief Operating Officer Jay Rajarathinam spoke with JLN about the investment and other happenings going on at the exchange group.
Rajarathinam said TMX was seeking to expand into more information businesses and cited the acquisition of Wall Street Horizon as an example. Wall Street Horizon is a provider of global market-moving action and global corporate event data.
