COLT strengthens Financial Services team with new hire
COLT, a leading European provider of business communications, today announced it has bolstered its Financial Services team with the appointment of Tony Moulange as senior business development manager. Moulange’s appointment is part of COLT’s ongoing drive to build its industry expertise in the European Finance market and continue to develop services that meet the fast changing needs of clients in this sector.
Reporting to Terry Quigley, head of Industry Practices in COLT’s Major Enterprise Division, Moulange is focused on building COLT’s position as a leading low latency infrastructure provider to Europe’s trading community, serving a range of banks, hedge funds, stock exchanges and MTFs. The Financial Services team also continues to develop specific solutions to help these organisations with challenges around trading/order execution, market data connectivity, payments, transaction processing, liquidity management and information delivery and security.
Tony Moulange has built up particular expertise in market data and algorithmic trading during its 20-year career in the City. He joined COLT from Orange Business Services’ Finance sector team and has also worked with investment banks including HSBC, Citi, Smith New Court and Merrill Lynch.
Commenting on his appointment, Moulange said, “The global financial markets are undergoing enormous change and COLT is in a great position to help a wide range of buy-side and sell-side organisations respond. COLT’s unique combination of data centres and next generation fibre network is inherently suited to latency sensitive applications, such as algorithmic trading. I am excited to be part of a company that has a heritage in Finance, impressive technical expertise and assets and a strong commitment to helping the sector evolve.”
