My Work Experience

Tom’s 30+ years of financial services experience is highlighted below.


For the past three years, Tom has been working at Trade Informatics, a TCA specialist firm. He ran the client services and data analytics team and worked with asset managers, sell side and outsourced trading desks to provide detailed TCA. In addition to providing insightful analysis of their executions, using historical transaction data and machine learning back testing methods, he worked with clients to create optimal trading strategies that saved millions in transaction costs.


In 2012, Tom launched the JPM equity analytics team and spent 6 years working with the cash trading desk developing analytical tools and providing insights for both traders and management. He spearheaded a global OMS/analytics platform with over 150 users.


Tom was an equity trader for 20+ years at the bulge bracket institutional level including Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank and most recently JP Morgan. He traded all types of equity, ETFs, portfolio trading, cash and electronic, and headed several trading desks. He was a major player in the launch of the ETF secondary and primary markets. In addition to his extensive experience in New York, he has had two “tours of duty” in Tokyo trading index arbitrage and more recently running JPM’s cash, PT and electronic desks.

Outsourced Trading

For the past two years, Tom has worked closely with outsourced trading desks as their exclusive TCA provider. He not only provided execution analysis for their in-house trading desk but offered direct TCA and client servicing to their outsourced trading clients. From the start of their operations and through their rapid growth, he was an integral part of their client engagement and prospecting activity.


Tom received an Applied Mathematics degree from Brown University. He went on to receive an MBA from the University of Chicago (Booth). He has most recently completed a Master’s Degree in Business Analytics at New York University Stern School of Business. He is currently an adjunct professor at Columbia University, in the Applied Analytics program.
