James’ financial market experience spans 18 years and includes Exchange Data International (EDI) and FIS. He has worked extensively with custodians, investment banks, hedge funds, asset managers, brokers, and data vendors across Asia, Europe, and North America.
Rawal is joining from Options Trading, where he served as Global Key Account Director, bringing 16+ years of deeply-developed knowledge of low-latency trading infrastructure, market data, and exchange connectivity. Throughout his career he has successfully led the development and implementation of complex solutions to address a multitude of client challenges including some of the largest outsource deals in the front office-managed infrastructure space.
Marked interest in the company’s customizable off-the-shelf and bespoke brokerage solutions has spiked, and as a result, Devexperts is expanding its business development team to meet the demand. Each of the four new hires brings a wealth of experience to the team, further underlining Devexperts’ commitment to providing top-tier solutions to brokers, exchanges, and the wealth management industry.

This solution offers start-ups the opportunity to quickly launch their business to market, an option that hardly any other software vendor can offer.
