Chezky is a triple threat: he’s a brilliant programmer, has a rich background in building exchange and client simulators, and has a great network of personal relationships in our space.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
Tradepoint Systems, LLC, a New York based financial services technology and consulting services provider, announced today that Yechezkel (“Chezky”) Khayyat has joined the company as Product Manager for Tradepoint’s Simpoint line of trade simulators. Khayyat brings nearly twenty years of software development, financial services technology and product management experience. He has spent the last decade as the Product Manager for Thomson Reuters’ Exchange Simulator and Client Simulator, software products that Thomson Reuters acquired from Aegis Software in 2010. Khayyat finished top in his class, graduating as the 1994 Valedictorian of Columbia’s Engineering School.
“We’re extremely fortunate to have Chezky on our team. He is a triple threat: he’s a brilliant programmer, has a rich background in building exchange and client simulators, and has a great network of personal relationships in our space,” said Eric Adelman, CEO of Tradepoint. “The financial services industry is ever-changing. As new regulations come about, more asset classes trade electronically, and new trading methods and algorithms emerge, the demand for more stringent QA practices and advanced trade simulators continues to increase.”
“I am so excited to join the Tradepoint team,” Khayyat said. “It is gratifying to be part of a company with real commitment to testing and simulation products, fresh ideas, dedicated staff, and all the experience that comes with having created and supported similar products in the past.”
Khayyat will be the Product Manager for Simpoint Client, Simpoint Exchange and Certpoint, software products that Tradepoint released to the marketplace earlier this year. Simpoint Exchange provides local simulations, with complete control of the trading and market data message flow, removing the need to test with exchanges’ UAT environments. Simpoint Client reverses the process by replicating order flow sent by clients to their upstream trading partners, such as banks, ECNs, and other venues, simplifying the testing of client-facing trading interfaces. Certpoint is a client onboarding tool that allows the clients of brokers and ECNs to self-certify their compliance with FIX Rules of Engagement.
