Cotton Quits Benchmark


Peter Cotton has left his role as chief scientific officer at fixed income pricing vendor Benchmark Solutions, a post he held since the vendor's creation in 2009 (IMD, Dec. 13, 2010).

Prior to Benchmark's launch, Cotton was chief executive of its precursor Julius Finance, a provider of credit derivatives pricing and valuations.

Cotton says he is now pursuing new, as-yet undisclosed opportunities.
