Swiss Stock Exchange (SWX) – interim programme delivery manager of Quotematch 
Tim Brister

 

Tim Brister was recruited as the programme manager for the Swiss Exchange's Quotematch initiative that delivered the most significant and complex set of changes seen at SWX for 10 years. A CHF 36.5 m programme, Quotematch delivered a new business strategy and trading system capability for the SWX Securitised Derivative, International Bond and ETF markets.  Key customers were major Investment Banks including UBS, Credit Suisse, ABN Amro, Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank.  In addition quote information was made available through a number of Independent Data Vendors including Royal Blue, GL, ORC and Front Capital.

The Quotematch programme team comprised 125 people world-wide (at peak) and, in addition to SWX business and technical development activities, engaged two third-party software suppliers for delivery of the new trading engine and supervision and surveillance system.

When Tim took over the programme management role the requirements were being finalised, and it was clear that the programme team needed re-organising and the plans needed revisiting.  Having re-baselined the plans Tim improved the delivery capability of the programme team.  Through a combination of re-organisation, removal and recruitment the team was built to successfully deliver new and changed processes, systems and infrastructure to agreed timescales to the level of quality expected in the Swiss market.
