Gazelles and Lions, part 2

The nomination period for the FPL Global Fixed Income Committee closed in May.  We are pleased to announce that George Macdonald (Macdonald Associates) will be the new Co-Chair of the Global Fixed Income Committee.  

Congratulations to George.   While George is very pro-FIX,  IMO if he can help break the (at least perceived) FIX-ness and techy-ness of the Global Fixed Income Committee, so instead it is seen as a [gazelles and lions] high-level and no-holds-barred open discussion group for fixed income etrading/e-distribution, then leverage each firm’s equity business buy-in and awareness of what FPL do, and do well, in order to get far more buyside involved for this generic fixed income etrading dialogue, with FIX only being wheeled out (and then only by the tech committee) when it’s nuts-and-bolts time, he’ll have made a big difference in the fixed income etrading space.
