Trading Apps brings on Malpass from Fidessa


Trading Apps has reshuffled its roster with the appointment Andrew Malpass as non-executive director.

Malpass has over 30 years of experience in the software industry and served as the CFO of Fidessa group (formerly Royalblue Group) from 1995 to February 2016.

He is also a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.

Malpass commented: “I am delighted to join Trading Apps as non-executive director. Trading Apps is at a similar position to when I first joined Fidessa and helped grow the company to be worth $1 billion listed on the FTSE. I hope to be able to bring my wealth of experience in financial software to the TA management."

Trading Apps has also seen its co-founder Jean-Paul Musicco shift from his role as managing director for North America to become non-executive director as well.

Matthew Harrison, CEO of Trading Apps, said: "I am delighted that Andy Malpass will be joining us as a non-executive of the board and that Jean-Paul Musicco has agreed to continue being involved in an advisory role.”

Prior to founding Trading Apps, Musicco worked for SAC Capital Advisors managing the financing for the various asset classes in numerous jurisdictions.

Musicco said: “My role as non-executive of the board is to assist the executive team in continuing the growth journey and vision that the original founders established over five years ago.”

“In particular, my role is to continue to bring my global experience with securities finance on both the sell and buy sides.”
