Pirum gains Crowther for client innovation


Pirum Systems has recruited Todd Crowther as head of client innovation.

Crowther will be responsible for business development and will be active in Pirum’s equity finance, liquidity management and prime brokerage businesses.

Before joining Pirum in September, Crowther was a consultant on Euronext’s securities financing transaction collateral exchange from December 2016 to March 2017.

Prior to Euronext, Crowther served at Nomura as head of equity finance trading and liquidity management for Europe, the Middle East and Africa for nine years.

Crowther will continue to be based in London.

The new hire marks the end of a busy summer for Pirum, which signed up its first clients for its joint Securities Financing Transactions Regulation reporting solution with IHS Markit.

Pirum also collaborated with the newly launch Wematch.SecuritiesFinancing on a post trade service and joined the South African Securities Lending Association.
