Wheaton, IL (June 15, 2016) BondWave LLC, a financial technology company and registered investment advisor that provides solutions to facilitate individual bond investing, today announced that Tony Miscimarra has been appointed Managing Director of Business Development, a newly established position. Mr. Miscimarra will be charged with managing and growing revenue and infrastructure to elevate BondWave’s presence in the industry, as well as to educate traders and advisors about BondWave’s offerings, especially in preparation for a launch of a suite of new solutions planned for early 2017.
Michael Ruvo, BondWave’s recently appointed CEO said, “Tony and I have known each other for 20 years and he is the ideal professional to lead BondWave’s sales efforts. With more than 30 years’ experience in the industry, originally as a bond trader and then as a fixed income financial technology thought leader, Tony has a proven track record for building strong sales teams and a client focused culture that informs product development and enhances profitability in the fixed income space.”
Mr. Miscimarra joins BondWave from Tradeweb Direct where he served as managing director since 2014. Previously, he was CEO of Fixed Income Solutions LLC, a technology solutions company focused on enabling market participants achieve greater efficiencies across multiple trading platforms and liquidity pools. Prior to that Mr. Miscimarra held senior roles with BondDesk Group, Instinet Fixed Income and UBS Securities. He began his career as a bond trader before transitioning to institutional fixed income sales. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science & Economics from the University of Pittsburgh.
“Tony’s addition to our team is an important aspect of BondWave’s plan to innovate in fixed income over the next several years,” added Ruvo. “Tony shares our vision that traders, advisors and investors are woefully underserved because capturing a single view of the bond market has been elusive, and they have lacked intuitive tools to analyze and monitor trading opportunities. Yet, we believe the opportunity now exists to bring a new level of transparency, data insights/market intelligence and open market structure to the fixed income space that is not currently available and more closely resembles the equity markets.”
