Percentile Makes Key Hires

Company seeks to support growing buy- and sell-side demand for regtech

John Barker, non-executive director, Percentile

Early-stage business expands as it sees increasing demand for solutions driven by regulations such as the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book.

Percentile, an early-stage provider of technology for risk management and regulatory compliance, has announced the appointments of John Barker as non-executive director and advisor to the board, Brian Miranda as sales director and Lavinia Constantin as product manager.

Percentile says the team's expansion reflects increasing demand from both the buy side and sell side for regulatory technology—so-called 'regtech'—and, more specifically, for technology that provides a firm-wide view of risk exposures and enables compliance with regulatory and internal stress-testing requirements under the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book rules.

Barker will advise Percentile's board on business development, corporate strategy and growth. He was a managing director at Liquidnet and has held senior positions at Instinet Europe. He has 30 years' experience in capital markets.

Miranda has been hired to lead Percentile's sales and business developments efforts across Europe, North America and Asia. He joins the company from Imagine Software, a real-time risk and portfolio management service provider for the buy side. Miranda has led teams focused on selling technology and risk solutions to both buy-side and sell-side financial institutions, including during his time at Dow Jones Telerate, eBRIDGE, Reuters and Thomson Financial. He reports to Percentile's CEO, Anthony Pereira.

Constantin is a qualified financial risk manager with several years' experience as a risk analyst at various City firms, including City Index and Peel Hunt, a mid-cap broker and trading house. She, too, reports to Pereira.
