1.     Inter-division charges have been made by Global Broking and Energy & Commodities to reflect the value of proprietary data provided to the Parameta Solutions division. The Global Broking inter-division revenues and Parameta Solutions inter-division costs are eliminated upon the consolidation of the Group's financial results.

2.     In Q1 2021, £6m of revenue was included within Agency Execution relating to the post-acquisition period of Liquidnet (the acquisition completed on 23 March 2021);  This Liquidnet revenue has been restated to £8m by including an additional £1m of revenue previously reported in Global Broking, and £1m previously reported in COEX Partners (in Agency Execution), reflecting the transfer of desks, which, due to their complementary nature and strategic fit, have been reclassified to be managed and reported as part of Liquidnet.

Revenue by division (constant currency basis):

  • Global Broking revenue up 3%, benefitting from increased market volatility. Revenue grew in Rates, Credit, FX & Money Markets and Emerging Markets, but was flat in Equities, resulting in an improved mix.

         - Rates activity increased most notably in short-dated contracts, which have lower transaction values compared with longer-dated contracts;

         - Revenue per broker (productivity) improved by 8%.

  • Energy & Commodities revenue up 5% driven by growth in Oil and Power & Gas in the US, while in Europe, Power & Gas declined, as high prices and significant volatility led to lower volumes.
  • Agency Execution revenue of £89m increased by 154%. Liquidnet revenue of £62m was in line with market activity. Market share increased marginally in the US and was stable in Europe, where we remain a market leader.
  • Parameta Solutions: Continued double-digit revenue growth in Data & Analytics (+11%).


Strategic progress:      

Mark Govoni, former President of US Brokerage at Instinet, joined the Group on 2 May 2022 as the new CEO of Agency Execution, with a primary focus on driving the Liquidnet growth strategy;

  • Parameta Solutions became an FCA authorised benchmark administrator in May: the first inter-dealer broker that will administer over the counter ('OTC') benchmarks;
  • Digital Assets Spot Platform: Hudson River Trading added to the list of market makers; custodian network expanded to include BitGo and Komainu.

 

2022 AGM:

  • The Group will host its Annual General Meeting today, Wednesday 11 May 2022, at 2.15pm (BST) at the offices of Allen & Overy LLP, One Bishop's Square, London, E1 6AD.

Parameta Solutions becomes an authorised benchmark administrator

Parameta Solutions takes over administration of TP ICAP benchmarks, laying foundations for future benchmark creation.

Parameta Solutions, the Data & Analytics division of TP ICAP, has announced that it has become a FCA authorised benchmark administrator, making it the first interdealer-broker to administer over the counter (OTC) benchmarks and indices.  Parameta Solutions will also take on administration of the nine TP ICAP interest rate swaps benchmarks that were previously administered by Moorgate Benchmarks Ltd.

The nine benchmarks, which all cover the mid-price interest rate swaps from TP ICAP’s Global Broking business, increases transparency for market participants for whom data-driven insight is crucial, especially for risk and compliance purposes. In particular, visibility into the level of the implied mid-price in the relevant underlying swap rate is key for clients as they adopt these benchmarks.

Jonathan Cooper, Chief Revenue Officer at Parameta Solutions commented, “Creating possibilities for clients drives everything we do, and it became clear that there was a significant gap in the market for independent OTC benchmarks. Underpinned by our wealth of data and insight, we’re now able to provide bespoke and transparent benchmarks & indices built on OTC data to support our clients so that they can accurately compare their performance against their asset allocation strategy.

“Looking ahead, building out our benchmarks & indices offering is a core priority for us, with a particular focus on the ESG and rates space.”

Rushmi Katyal, Chief Governance, Risk and Controls Officer at Parameta Solutions added, “Our clients have highlighted that access to Parameta Solutions’ benchmarks will enable greater innovation and better management of risk. That is why we have designed a governance, risk and control framework that will ensure our clients benefit from the compliance and transparency regime we have put in place.”

ICAP Information Services Limited trading as Parameta Solutions will take on all administrative responsibilities for the benchmarks previously administered by Moorgate from 16 May 2022. Parameta Solutions also complies with the IOSCO Principles for Financial Benchmarks.

TP ICAP announces new CEO of its Agency Execution division

Press Release

TP ICAP announces new CEO of its Agency Execution division

TP ICAP, a leading electronic market infrastructure and information provider, announced today the appointment of Mark Govoni as Chief Executive Officer of its Agency Execution division.

TP ICAP announces new CEO of its Agency Execution division

TP ICAP, a leading electronic market infrastructure and information provider, announced today the appointment of Mark Govoni as Chief Executive Officer of its Agency Execution division. Govoni replaces John Ruskin, who has decided to step away from the business having successfully led the integration of Liquidnet into the TP ICAP Group. Ruskin will stay with the Group until the end of June to ensure an orderly transition.

TP ICAP’s Agency Execution division is formed of the Liquidnet and COEX Partners brands. The two businesses provide trading services for a broad range of asset classes to a sophisticated client base of asset managers, asset owners and hedge funds.

Govoni joins TP ICAP from Instinet, a firm he joined in 2012 and where he served most recently as President of U.S. Brokerage, having previously held the role of Head of U.S. Sales Trading. Prior to Instinet, Govoni was a Managing Director at Nomura Securities International, responsible for U.S. Execution Services. Earlier in his career, he held senior Program and Electronic Sales trading positions at Merrill Lynch. Govoni will be based in New York and report directly to TP ICAP Group CEO Nicolas Breteau.

Nicolas Breteau, Chief Executive Officer of TP ICAP Group, said: “Mark is a proven U.S. equity specialist. He has an extensive client network and is well connected to the industry’s top talent. Combine this with his energy, ambition, and ability to build industry-leading businesses and Mark is well placed to drive the performance of our buyside-focused franchise in the U.S. and beyond.

“Mark will build on the legacy left by John Ruskin, who I’d like to thank sincerely for the huge contribution he has made to TP ICAP. As well as stepping up to successfully execute the integration of Liquidnet, over the last five years John has championed the Group’s diversification strategy to expand our buyside offering. As a result, our Agency Execution division generated more than 10% of the Group’s revenue in 2021. Mark will now take up the baton from John to drive future growth.”

Mark Govoni, Chief Executive Officer of Agency Execution, said: “TP ICAP’s Agency Execution platform has strong and trusted client relationships, global reach, top tier technology and high calibre people. Together, these attributes position the platform to shape the future of electronic markets. I’m excited to get going, to build on the achievements of John and the team, and to advance our offering so that we serve our clients even more effectively.”
