Who’s Kevin McPartland?

I have over 20 years of capital markets industry experience with deep expertise in the market structure and technology powering those markets.  I’m currently the head of market structure & technology research at Greenwich Associates, a provider of data, research and advisory services to the global capital markets.

I routinely present at a wide range of industry conferences focused on fixed income market structure and the evolving world of FinTech.  I also interact with legislators and regulators, having testified in front of the Senate Banking Committee on Swap Execution Facilities, spoken publicly in front of the CFTC, and presented to the SEC’s fixed income market structure committee.  I and am also routinely quoted in the media including The Economist, Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Financial Times, ABC News, US News and World Report, Wired Magazine, Bloomberg, Reuters News, eFinancialNews and numerous other industry publications.

Prior to joining Greenwich Associates, I worked at BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, focused on market structure and electronic trading.  Before my stint on the buy side, I was the Director of Fixed Income Research at TABB Group, having founded the practice.  Before that, I worked for Detica (formerly m.a.partners), where I was a senior manager in the Global Financial Markets division.
