Alan Williamson heads up business development for the buy-side at SmartDX where he has been working for the past eight months. SmartDX, previously known as Thunderhead, aims to be the industry-standard for negotiation and collaboration of derivatives contracts for capital markets.
Previously he was at Omgeo, and its parent DTCC, for nearly ten years managing commercial relationships with the world’s leading investment banks, investment managers and investment outsource providers. Alan thus has many years’ experience in working with leading buy-sides in understanding first-hand their operational challenges – in both the securities and derivatives spaces - and delivering technology solutions that can mitigate risk, reduce costs and enhance operational performance.
Alan is keen to see financial institutions embrace document digitalisation and collaboration in the derivatives space via cloud-based deployment in its broadest sense.
