CHICAGO, April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Matrix Executions, LLC ("Matrix"), a newly formed agency only broker-dealer, has added high touch capabilities to its already robust offering of solutions for exchanges as well as institutional and retail trading professionals.
"As a new entrant we identified the need in the marketplace for high touch capabilities and addressed it quickly," said Michael McNamara, President of Matrix Executions.
In conjunction with Matrix's new high touch desk, Matthew Benson joins the team. Benson has worked on the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) for nearly three decades, mostly as an equity derivatives broker with electronic brokerage firms, Belzberg, LiquidPoint, ConvergEx and most recently, Dash Financial.
When asked why Benson chose to join Matrix, he had this to say: "I'm incredibly excited to join this new venture. This is a great opportunity to be able to build out a new high touch operations desk with the support of a seasoned team of listed derivatives experts, many of whom I've worked with in the past."
As Managing Director of High Touch Services at Matrix, Benson will work alongside a growing and experienced team of accomplished industry professionals who have already joined in the firm's efforts to improve the overall customer experience in the agency trading and transaction cost analysis of listed derivatives.
"Hiring Matt and creating the high touch desk continues to round out the services we offer to the trading community," said McNamara. "It is also a building block for our ability to trade digital assets in the near future."
