Gil Mandelzis- Chief Executive of Traiana
Gil Mandelzis co-founded Traiana, the market leader in post-trade services across FX, Futures Equities and Equity Derivatives, in April 2000 and continues as Chief Executive Officer following the acquisition of the company by ICAP in October 2007.
Over his 10+ years at the helm, Traiana's flagship product, the Harmony Network, has grown to provide end-to-end trade automation and risk management for the world's leading banks, brokers, prime brokers and buyside firms. Traiana now connects nearly 1,000 market participants, and has dramatically lowered the costs and operational risks associated with prime brokerage trade processing. Accordingly, volumes on Harmony have grown significantly since its introduction, with average daily volumes routinely exceeding US$750bln. Traiana and the Harmony Network have been consistently recognized by industry groups for contributing to the growth and stability of FX markets.
Looking forward, Traiana is to continuing to enhance the company's position as the market standard for post-trade processing for foreign exchange transactions, while simultaneously expanding Traiana's offering into other markets.
In 2009, Gil was appointed to ICAP's Global Executive Management Group, where he contributes to the overall post-trade strategy and business strategy for ICAP, plc.
Gil began his career in finance at Deutsche Bank Alex Brown, where he worked in the M&A Group at Deutsche Bank Alex Brown (formerly BT Wolfensohn) in New York, where he advised companies in the financial and technology sectors. Mr. Mandelzis holds a MBA from INSEAD.
