The Data & Analytics division of market infrastructure provider TP ICAP has recently announced its appointment of Andrew Cockburn as Regional Sales Manager for Japan. Cockburn has been based in Japan for 14 years and brings a comprehensive insight into the country’s Data & Analytics industry.
Jonathan Cooper, Global Head of Sales for TP ICAP Data & Analytics, commented:
Japan is the third largest economy in the world and Andrew’s industry expertise, coupled with in-depth regional knowledge means that we can continue to excel as a key operator in Japan. Andrew’s appointment is also an important component of TP ICAP Data & Analytics strategy to diversify and broaden its client base in Japan and the region as a whole.
Andrew joins TP ICAP from Informa Maritime Intelligence’s Japanese sales team. There, he helped banks, shipping and insurance companies meet the rigorous standards set by international trade and sanctioning bodies, updating their due diligence and compliance systems accordingly. Andrew also spent 8 years leading successful system upgrade projects, product migrations and commercial rollouts at Thomson Reuters (now known as Refinitiv), helping a vast array of clients along the way.
In his new role, Andrew will add value to Japan-based clients by efficiently rolling out new and existing solutions designed to tackle the everyday obstacles that often arise within modern-day commodity, financial and energy markets. Cockburn will support the company’s transition into new Risk Free Rates, and provide solutions and clearer trade transparency for clients to make smart valuations and carry out streamlined liquidity risk management. He will also share innovative insights using cross-asset analytics.
