30 April 2018

  • Mosaic Smart Data (Mosaic), the FICC data analytics company, is today announcing that Jack Jeffery has joined the company as Chairman of the Board.

With over 35 years’ experience in the financial markets, Jack has previously held CEO positions at electronic fixed income platform MTS and ICAP Electronic Broking, which included responsibility for Brokertec and EBS. Prior to that, he was CEO of EBS, the spot FX electronic broking platform which he guided to its sale to ICAP in 2006. Jack also served on the Bank of England and US Federal Reserve Foreign Exchange committees between 1999 and 2007.

Jack joins the Mosaic Smart Data board following its funding round in March which saw J.P. Morgan invest in the company.

Mosaic Smart Data’s platform provides sophisticated market activity analytics in real-time. It seeks to empower financial market professionals with the best data-driven tools to answer the questions they need to ask and provide those answers in real time and in a highly consumable visual language.

Matthew Hodgson, founder and CEO of Mosaic Smart Data, said: “What sets Mosaic Smart Data apart in the data analytics space is our deep market expertise across the whole team with decades of collective experience working in capital markets. This makes Jack the perfect fit as Mosaic Smart Data’s Chairman and I am delighted that he will be sharing his expertise and experience with us as we continue to scale globally and expand the platform’s breadth and depth.”

On his appointment to the board as Chairman, Jack Jeffery said: “Data is fast becoming the currency of success in the modern financial markets, but all too often market professionals are forced to rely on their intuition and experience because the empirical data just isn’t there to tackle the questions they need answered.”

“Mosaic Smart Data provides the solution to this problem with analytics tailored specifically to the needs of the FICC markets. The platform has the ability to deliver in an intuitive manner with a large range of interactive tools. I believe this will be transformational for banks, their clients and the individuals who use it every day.”

“That is why I decided to join the board and why I am so excited to help guide the team to further successes.”
