B2C2, a cryptocurrency liquidity provider based in London, named Nicola White as CEO of its U.S. entity, which is based in Jersey City.
White succeeds Rob Catalanello, who is leaving the firm, the company announced May 23.
A veteran of electronic trading, White joined B2C2 in July 2021 as president of B2C2 USA. She previously worked at Citadel Securities as global chief operating officer of fixed income, and she also served as the global head of electronic markets within the fixed income division at Morgan Stanley, where she automated interest rate trading.
Max Boonen, who founded B2C2 in 2015, described White as “accomplished and driven” and said in a statement that he’s been impressed with her work since she joined the company. Boonen also thanked Catalanello “for having helped grow our market share.”
White added, “I’m delighted to be leading our U.S. operations and look forward to working with the global team to build out B2C2’s already significant capabilities in electronic trading across spot and derivatives. We will continue to create innovative solutions to meet the needs of our diverse, fast-growing institutional client base.”
B2C2 was acquired by Japanese financial group SBI in 2020 but remains a standalone company. It is authorized and regulated by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority.
