I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Frank for his tremendous dedication to the company over the years. He has seen the business grow into the world’s leading provider of proprietary data business with a completely unique source of data. I wish him all the very best for the future.”

“I am delighted to be joining TP ICAP,” responded Sinclair. “One thing that has been clear to me throughout the process of joining the company is that it has high ambition for its information.”
