Connamara’s CEO Jim Downs discusses what’s new at the company since we spoke with him at FIA Expo last year. It turns out it’s a lot! Connamara’s EP3 platform has gained traction since then and they have signed a Swap Execution Facility (SEF) that will be transferring to the company’s technology in the next few months. They have also taken on clients in the healthcare area, including one that is applying to trade derivatives on healthcare. Connamara also had their first client outside capital markets and are adding the ability to do RFQs. Downs also discusses market resiliency in the face of the Coronavirus.
