Eventus Systems, Inc., an international provider of multi-asset class trade surveillance and market risk solutions, has announced that Nick Wallis has just joined as MD for the Europe, EMEA region – “leading the fast-growing company’s sales efforts in the region.”

Wallis has extensive experience “in financial markets, energy derivatives and technology, including 12 years at Nasdaq, where he ran its surveillance sales and account management in EMEA.”

The company continues “to expand its presence in EMEA, with plans to further grow the sales, account management and support staff in the coming months.”

Schroeder said:

“Nick is an outstanding addition to our team as he brings a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory challenges our clients and prospects face in the UK, EU, Middle East and other jurisdictions, as well as great technical knowledge of the surveillance space. He’s a strong leader and proven sales professional. We’re excited to have him build out our sales force of experienced market practitioners.”

Wallis remarked:

“The role of the compliance officer has never been more demanding, with new markets, new asset classes and complex data challenges. Firms are looking for agile partners able to address issues quickly in a fast-moving landscape. I believe Eventus is well positioned to attract new clients with its next-generation technology, machine learning and deeply experienced staff. I’ve been really impressed by the Validus platform and by how quickly it can be enhanced to meet clients’ bespoke needs.”

Wallis held positions “in both the markets and technology businesses of Nasdaq.”

Recently, he served as EMEA Head of Surveillance Sales and Account Management, “having moved into surveillance after holding responsibility for the firm’s risk management solution.”

Earlier in his tenure, Wallis “served as Director of Commodity Sales, focused on building and managing energy trading accounts.”

From 2008 to 2009, Wallis was Business Development Manager for Tullett Prebon (now part of TP ICAP Group) – “one of the world’s leading interdealer brokers – responsible for marketing and promoting the brokerage business to senior management at investment banks and trading firms.”

In 2005, he joined Incisive Media (now InfoPro Digital),” working on Risk Magazine’s sales and sponsorship team in Europe, before moving to New York to serve as U.S. Publisher, overseeing the magazine’s U.S. commercial business.”

Wallis holds “a Bachelor’s degree from The University of Sheffield.”

Eventus Systems claims to be “a leading global provider of multi-asset class trade surveillance and market risk solutions.”

Its powerful Validus platform “is easy to deploy, customize and operate across equities, options, futures, foreign exchange (FX), fixed income and digital asset markets.”

Validus is “proven in the most complex, high-volume and real-time environments of tier-1 banks, broker-dealers, futures commission merchants (FCMs), proprietary trading groups, market centers, buy-side institutions, energy and commodity trading firms, and regulators.”
