UK - Inalytics, the transaction cost measurement company has made a string of new hires to augment a new buy-side transaction cost analysis (TCA) team.

Justine Dawes, a former director of UK and European sales for the European TraderForum and the Investor Solutions Forum – part of Institutional Investor, has joined as marketing director.

Dawes arrives alongside her former colleague Stéphane Blais, who joined Inalytics as managing director for asset management clients in November last year. Blais was formerly head of Institutional Investor’s European TraderForum.

Inalytics has also brought on board Sandro Lunghi, a quant analyst with 15 years in the industry, to strengthen the reporting and consultancy function of the business. Lunghi will present and analyse the new TCA reports to clients.

In August last year, Inalytics forged an alliance with the PlexusGroup, a US TCA provider to investment managers, pension funds and brokerage firms.
