We’re happy to welcome Andrea Di Blasio to #TeamETX

Joining us as Head of #quantitativetrading, Andrea comes with a PhD in mathematics, and 3 years of quant trading experience. If you don’t know what that means either, in his own words, “I analyze data, test and develop new ideas to monitor and improve the overall processes related to the trading ecosystem: pricing, inventory management, liquidity sourcing, hedging strategies, etc.”.

When he’s not doing that, he’s cooking, eating, and wine tasting. 🍷
