Bruyns will report to David Farmery, who is responsible for the firm’s business development.
Prior to joining Message Automation, Bruyns served as a broker in securities finance and delta one products at US broker-dealer Louis Capital Markets from November 2015 to September 2016.
Bruyns was also a securities finance trader at MF Global from March 2001 to February 2013.
Message Automation was acquired by Broadridge Financial Solutions in March to bolster its suite of post-trade services.
The financial technology provider has a number of ventures including a joint project with financial services software provider Misys focused on a regulatory reporting component for compliance with the second Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II).
The venture promises to automate the reporting process to comply with MiFID II’s January 2018 deadline, and supports the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) requirements around over-the-counter derivatives, as banks prepare to report by November 2017
