IPSX makes senior analyst appointment


IPSX Group (International Property Securities Exchange), the operator of a regulated securities exchange dedicated to commercial property, has hired Mark Stroud as a senior analyst reporting to Lisa Walker, Head of Market Regulation. 

The new appointment brings the IPSX team to a total of 18 staff, as it continues to put in place the infrastructure to drive the business’ next stage of development. Stroud’s appointment closely follows that of David Delaney, Group Chief Executive Officer, and Roger Clarke, Managing Director and Head of Capital Markets.
 
Stroud has been brought on board to enhance and implement market regulation procedures and will be responsible for leading market surveillance activities as well as evolving the market surveillance strategy, in line with regulatory requirements and business developments, and developing the ongoing member monitoring programme. This includes managing the admission process for new members and issuers, ensuring proper daily open and close operations, supervising market trading and monitoring for disorderly trading and market abuse.
 
Stroud has 17 years of market surveillance experience and is qualified in CISI Global Financial Compliance. He most recently worked as a compliance officer at Paragon (Interserve), where he spent four years, and prior to that was a trade surveillance analyst at the New York Stock Exchange for 13 years where his chief responsibilities were surveillance and monitoring of market trading, as well as overseeing and advising stakeholders on regulatory and compliance. Stroud has also held roles at Chase Manhattan Bank and Fimat Futures Options.
 
Lisa Walker, Head of Market Regulation at IPSX, says: “Watertight market regulation and surveillance is critical to the orderly operation of IPSX’s markets and we will be meeting the highest standards in this regard. To this end, it is essential to have an experienced team in place with a deep knowledge of the complexities of how public markets function. We are pleased therefore to have someone of Mark’s calibre and background join IPSX, as we build out for the next stages of our development.”
